Hi C.Emmanuel Onyema, does your website on Netlify have a custom domain name?

If no:

  1. Get a domain name with any of the registrars. I use NameCheap

  2. Add the new domain name to Netlify. Here's how:

  3. Follow this guide to add a blog to your site.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Cheers!
