Create a professional WEBSITE using Blogger

One of the basic difference between blogs and websites is that blogs are dynamic whereas websites are usually static. Bloggers update their blogs frequently and thus new posts are added to the blog which show publishing dates some where near the title.
A website is where you actually display your products and services.Websites usually have (nearly) fixed number of pages and links to these pages are either shown in the side-bar or at top through a drop-down menu.

You can easily use blogging platforms like Blogger.com to create a blog with unlimited space and bandwidth. On the other hand, if you want to start a website with a new domain and a host, it may cost you many dollars per month, depending upon the bandwidth usage.

So the best economical way to start a website is to use a customized domain (www.example.com) but do not pay anything for hosting. Sign up at Blogger to start a blog and completely modify its user-interface to give it a website look.

Follow these steps to create your economical website.
Register the domain at 1and1.com
Create a blog at Blogger
Redirect your new domain to blogger blog

Upload a new and more professional template to your blog. [Change Blogger Template]
You may use these professional template from FlaconHive:
1. Bizmax
2. Zinmag Primus
3. Zinmag Tribune
4. Imprezz
5. And more free professional templates

Go to settings and disable commenting on your blog.
Also stop displaying date above title:

For this go to Layout and click on Edit link at Body Widget. And un-mark the option to display date.

*update

Disable Commenting In Your Blogger Blog

As websites do not have comment-forms in their webpages, so you can also disable commenting in your blog from Blogger-Dashboard -> Settings:
Comments - select "Hide"
Comments Default for Posts - select "New Post Do Not Have Comments" in the drop-down menu.

That's it ! now you have a professional website while you are paying just for a domain.

Hello Subhayan,

Instead of removing the links completely I would suggest you to replace those older & newer posts links with your own text or small simple images, you may read the tutorial here:

Hehe... that's what I did with my blog. You can take the advantage of some awesome Blogger templates and you don't need to pay for the host. It's even better than a standard website :))

That's great buddy!
But don't use photobucket, your bandwidth is already out. Rather use tinypic.com with unlimited bandwidth (tinypic belongs to photobucket)

Sir,

I am thinking of getting my own domain name. But i am thinking twice.

My blogger blog, JackDi, is just new. I started this May 2010 only. If i get a custom domain name, can i still update my blog by using Blogger?

Please give me some advice. I posted this question on your other article. I really want to do it but im hesitating.

Thank you.

-Jack-

Well you cannot upload files to Blogger, (but of course you can upload pictures via picasa).
To upload other files (including HTML files), create a new sub-domain on your domain (if you are using a paid-domain) and upload files to it. Then register an account at Freehostia.com, upload your files there and link them up at your blog, via drop down menus/sidebar etc.
