It is not mandatory to purchase custom domain but recommended. Even you can run your blog without custom domain. 

But if you are serious about blogging and want to start blogging as career, then I highly recommend to purchase custom domain.

Setting domain through Google Domain is super easy! Just select and purchase domain and connect to your Blogger account. That's it !

And for Namecheap, you need to follow instructions step by step - How to connect Namecheap Domain to Blogger.

If your blog address starts with HTTPS:// then it means your blog has SSL installed. 

With blogspot subdomain, now SSL is installed by default. You don't need to install it again.

But if you set custom domain but not install SSL, then you must follow the followings -

  1. To install free SSL, go to Blogger Dashboard → Settings 


  2. Under HTTPS section, switch on both HTTPS availability, HTTPS redirect and nothing to do.
  3. It will take few times and will setup automatically.
