    Yes, you can do that if you really want to, and Blogspot has extensive tutorials to show you exactly what you need to do, depending on your server.

      Good luck!
      Wow ...

      I never imagined I'd dispute something asserted by Andy, and Michael, and Waken ... but (rightly or wrongly?!) I don't agree with any of you.

      It used to be possible until 31st March 2010 (that's from memory - I don't swear to the date!), to host Blogger blogs on a separate paid server, but it hasn't been possible for new Blogger blogs started since that date, because that was when Blogger stopped supporting FTP. Until then, there had certainly been many self-hosted Blogger blogs, but no more. (Some of the former ones, on private, paid hosting, still exist, but they can't be updated any more).

      The link provided above relates to using your own domain-name with a blog hosted at Blogspot, not to "hosting a Blogspot blog on a separate paid server", as asked by the OP, surely? :confused:

      Anyway, with apologies for picking a fight (and especially if I'm mistaken), my answer is "No, this isn't possible any more".

        Oh, I wasn't aware Alexa as I have not been using them for so long. Thanks for the update.

        And to the OP, sorry.. I just grab the link from Google of which I remembered it was possible.

        Well, while I am all for spirited debate or sharing of differing opinions on matters of opinion, this is certainly not one to dispute. And it doesn't sound to me like you are picking a fight at all.

        Good luck to the OP. All in all you might be better off with WP to start with. Its pretty friendly now and has a lot of support in a lot of places.

    Hey Alexa,

    I won't pretend you misunderstood what I said

    You can just copy the content over, but it did used to be possible to set it up to ftp to your own site so they obviously decided that made it too easy for people.

    Apologies to the OP - Don't waste your time with Blogspot, create your own site on your own domain so you're not held hostage by another company owning your online real-estate.

    Andy
