So I've had a blog now for a few years now, starting out at dokdoyle.blogspot.com before moving to the name dokoffice.ca.tt. I'd like to move to a .com (or even better .ca)

What I am wondering what I would have to do? Is it easier to just get a redirect to the current one or have someone host it for me. I like the Blogger service, but can move if I have to.

any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure what you are looking for.

Do you want instructions on how to buy a domain name, or are you looking for advice on web hosts?

It sounds like you want to at least purchase a domain name. Once you have a domain name, there are a few options. You can go with a hosting provider and set up an account with the domain name pointing to it, or you could continue with your current hosting setup (presumably) and pay a small fee to your registrar to redirect to a different URL for you.

If everything is OK with the site you are at, and you just want a different URL for advertising, it might be easiest to stay where you are and pay for a redirect on the domain name that you purchase. Hosting solutions will provide you with more space and more flexibility, but if you just want to run a blog then this might be overkill.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

I guess I'm basically looking to redirect a domain (dokoffice.ca or .com)to the blog I already have.

Last I heard, IE7 will automatically be downloaded, but it'll ask you if you want to install. I presume IE7 will ask, the first time you run it.
