  6. Hi.
    I recently changed my page www.entremielysushi.blogspot.com to a domain that I bought at namecheap (www.entremielysushi.com). I can not redirect myself well if I try to enter from the old address, and this message goes out:

    This blog is not hosted on Blogger. It has not been tested for spam, viruses or other harmful content.

    Any ideas?
    Thank you very much
