How to Obtain a Free Custom Domain Name with TLD and How to Connect it to Blogspot


   


 Domain name is the specific and unique address that differentiate every website on the internet from each others through a set of specific characters, or phrases. Based on Wikipedia,  Domain name can be defined as an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy,
authority or control within the Internet. For example the www.apptechera.net is the domain name of this website. Also www.google.com, wekipedia.org, and fb.com are the domain names for google search engine, Wikipedia encyclopedia, and Facebook respectively.   

If you has a BlogSpot on Blogger platform, you might got a notification to add your third party URL address or specific domain name to your blogger, or even if you tried to upgrade your hosted Adsense account to show adds on your BlogSpot you will asked to put your website url address with Top-level domain (TLD), i.e. you can't put url of your blogger (such as www.apptechera.blogspot.com)  if you need to upgrade your AdSense account because this is  not a TLD url.

The Top-level domain (TLD) can be defined as the last segment of a domain name or root website address, or is the part that came immediately after the "dot" symbol. For example in www.apptechera.net  the TLD is tk segment,  while in  www.youtube.com  the TLD is com.

There are many websites or organizations that offer domain names for some dollars per year such as www.godaddy.com, www.wix.com, www.1and1.com and www.domains.google .and many others.
