Publishing To A Custom Domain? Going Back To Blog*Spot Isn't Difficult

If you're currently publishing your blog to a custom domain, because you wanted to use a non-Blog*Spot address with some of the shiny Layouts template features, maybe you're tired of the occasional problems. Maybe you require the automatic redirect from BlogSpot to the custom domain, and the BlogSpot URL is redirecting to a bogus, unwanted warning.

Whatever your motivation, it's not hard to go back to publishing on Blog*Spot.

Just go to your Blogger dashboard, and click on the Settings link for the blog. Then, from the Publishing link under Settings, select "Switch to: • blogspot.com".

Hi-
If I decide to go back to Blogspot, will sites that link to my custom domain be broken?

Also, what are the benefits of going back with Blogspot instead of my customs domain?Thanks!

Any link that refers to the custom domain URL will be broken, yes.

The benefits of going back to BlogSpot publishing are avoidance of known problem with publishing to a custom domain.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
