Renewing A Google Domains Registered Domain

All good things must come to an end. So did the first year of my Google Domains registered domain.

Fortunately, renewing took but a few minutes.

Just login to Google Domains (or, click on a bookmark) - and start with "My domains", and the domain in question.


Find the domain, in need of renewal. Click on the expiry period. Here we see "366 days", because I already renewed.



Find the Registration wizard, and click on "Add years".



Select a time period. You can select from 1 to 8 years - no more awkward yearly renewal, for those who like to reduce the stress.



Then, Review your purchase. Change the bank account, if necessary. And, hit "Buy".


The next message said "A receipt has been emailed to you.", and that was that.

The receipt is in my Inbox, and Registration now shows expiry at one more year in the distance (as above).

It's taken way longer to write this, than it did to Buy the registration renewal.

It looks like Google Domains is one of the better designed Google Services. The renewal portion of the Registration wizard certainly could not be simpler.

If you do not live in the USA, my condolences.

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
