How to setup HTTPS for custom domains in Blogger?

Finally, Blogger has released free HTTPS feature for custom domains. This feature were available only for subdomains using extension .blogspot.com (domain.blogspot.com).

All blogger users can use HTTPS (SSL) for custom domain without .blogspot extension.

Blogspot, a blog platform from Google, is one of the rare platforms that provides free domain hosting. The specialty of Blogspot (blogger.com) is that:

  • It’s totally free.
  • It allows ADS, which enable the client to earn money in on a host for which he does not pay.
  • Blogger allows hosting a custom domain for free. This is possible with some other platforms, but most (if not all) do not allow ADS.
  • And the last feature, HTTPS for custom domains makes blogspot a complete and perfect platform, especially for beginners.

Although, for a professional project, a paid platform is needed, and another website software like WordPress. Anyway, now blogger is a perfect choice not just for beginners.
