How Can I Transfer My Blogger Site to HostGator Hosting?

Since Blogger (Blogspot) isn't an actual hosting company, there's no way to directly transfer your site from Blogger to your HostGator; however, Blogger has a feature that will allow you to export your site content to a universal format.

You can visit Google support for help exporting your Blogger content.
