Alyssa, I have no clue how to do it. I am just writing because obviously you did the (xxxx.com) as an example. It turned into a link and if you click on it its a X rated site LMAO

hey alyssa,

 

any basic hosting should work for you...i would look for something between $5-10 a month. godaddy also has hosting if it might make it easier for you but you will need to see if they will transfer your files from one host to another if you do not know how to do this

You'll have to buy hosting since your previous site at that domain was hosted at Wedding Window.

 

When you have your host, you'll then have to update your name servers in Go Daddy so the domain name forwards to the correct host.

how did you get your own domain for wedding window? did you buy it through them? are you wanting to now transfer that to your blogger site?

 

if you don't care to use the same domain you had before, the easiest way is to register your domain with godaddy via blogger. I'm just not sure how you'd do it if you wanted to keep it the same as what you had with wedding window.

 

Steps for getting a personal domain in blogger:

Settings

publishing

switch to CUSTOM DOMAIN

 

then just follow the steps- very quick & easy. it's usually $10 a year through godaddy.

I just saw this option on blogger in the publishing section

:already own a domain- switch to advanced settings

 

so if you want to keep it the same as your wedding window url, follow those steps.

aah cool thread- i want to do this.

 

however, i acquired our url through weddingtracker.com, so they now own it (even though our website has since expired) and now i can't purchase it through godaddy or anyone else- i have to use weddingtracker which is owned by the knot. i hate the knot!

Alyssa,

 

I could probably get it cheaper, but I use Yahoo hosting, which has Wordpress all built in. If you're considering going to wordpress (I like it better) it might be a good option. It's definitely not the cheapest, and I'd rather support a small business, but it's so easy I can't quit it!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
