Blogger is a free and optional blogging service. It was developed by Pyra Labs in 1999 and later acquired by Google in 2003. This blogger CMS (Content Management System) and blog architecture is coded on python.
Blogger hosting is provided by google on the sub-domain of www.blogspot.com, that is if your blog name is “dotscreated” then your blog url will be www.dotscreated.blogspot.com. Google allows addition of custom domain on the top of this sub-domain by simply redirecting the domain to your blog hosting servers and it is completely free.
A user can have maximum of 100 blog accounts within a single google account, free of cost.
