This post might sounds awkward to you that why would someone on a custom domain thinks a free domain is better? don't be ;). I was chatting with a blogger-friend Edwin Akwudolu of High Technology and we were discussing about stuff relating to blogging. Then i asked why he hasn't got a custom domain yet for his blog (cos i known him that he has what it takes to have more than 4 custom domain at once *winks*) and he told me he aint ready yet. I'd knew he'd could buy more than 4 domains at a time so i think he's doing it for a reason. .

Below are the list of advantages of free blogger domain over custom domain as compiled by me. ;)

Advantages of Free Blogger domain Over Custom domain

Free domain Name: There are millions of blogs all over the internet and i bet most of them are hosted on blogger platform. This is because you get your own domain for absolutely free. There was even a day am doing research and i noticed some blogs has even been abandoned on the cyberspace for more than 4years, this wouldn't have been had it been blogger domain are paid

*. Worry Less about Hosting Issue: One of the things that worry a webmaster is how to find a trustworthy company or website that can host their blog. Hosting is one of the things that frustrates a site-owner. As for the blogger platform, [you don't need to host your blog whether you're on a free domain or custom domain] whilst this is not so, on the wordpress platform. Like i said earlier, hosting issue can cause a site to be down (especially when the traffic is much) and the host server are unable to hold it. I could remember a community website for bloggers like a year+ ago called, though am not sure but i think the site went down due to some hosting issue because the traffic is too enormous[i really missed the blogger social-networking site]. But with Blogger Platform, your blog is hosted securely and absolutely for free no matter how heavy your blog traffic is!

These are the two points i could gather for now. Do you think there are some other advantages apart from the one listed above, please do not feel hesistate to share it via the comment box.
