How To Change Blogspot Address to Custom Domain from Go Daddy

Blogger has feature to allow the user changing his/her blog address to the custom domain .com .net .org ..etc. User only change the domain name and do not need to think about hosting, for hosting still using blogger.
 After change, when visitor still come to (old) Blogspot address, then will  auto redirect to the new custom domain. for example : my blog address is https://komputertipstrik.blogspot.com , when someone go to that address then will  redirect to my domain www.tipstric.com. So don't worry to lose visitors.
