If you have a blogspost (Blogger) domain and you’re tired of the long, unprofessional urls, and the limited flexibility, this quick tutorial will show you how easy it is to transfer all of your blog posts into a new Hostgator hosting account.

ftp server = yournewwebsite.com

blog url = http://yournewwebsite.com/blog
