Create and change URLs

A URL is the address of a website. For example, www.google.com is a URL.

Create your URL

When you create a blog, you'll choose a URL. Visitors can access your blog by typing the URL you've chosen into the address bar of their browsers. Here are a few things to know:

  • The format for your URL will be nameyouchoose.blogspot.com.
  • When you choose your URL, remember that you can use only letters, numbers, and hyphens. Special characters like $, #, &, etc. won't work.
  • Since there are already a large number of Blogspot blogs, you may need to get creative and possibly try a few different URLs before you find one that's available.

Change your URL

Here are a couple of things to know about changing your URL:

  • If you change your blog's URL, your old URL will be available for other bloggers to use.
  • If you don't want your URL to include "blogspot.com," go to custom domain.

Here's how to change your URL:

  1. Sign in to blogger.com.
  2. Under Settings on the left, click Basic.
  3. Edit your URL in the Blog Address box.
  4. Click Save.
