My blog https://gowithvimal.blogspot.com is on Blogger & now I want to change it. Please advice whether I should get a custom domain and keep it hosted on Blogger or change the host also along with the domain name. Which is the better option. I want to understand in terms of traffic gain.

I think most of the things are cleared by above bloggers but i wanted to say that its better to switch to a personal domain. The main reason is:
If you putting so much hard work and effort in your blog and its writing, its better to have your own domain. Because when brands/companies approach you for sponsored content or reviews, they prefer a blog having a good DA, PA and other stats with a personal domain instead of shared one.
A domain just cost you 99 INR from godaddy. Give a try and i am sure with time you gonna increase your blog DA and other factors as well.
Have a nice day

If you prefer to write on Blogger then the best thing is to buy a custom domain and direct your blog to it. But if you prefer Word press, now is the time to switch , and purchase a .com domain and a hosting plan from a good platform, reseller, hostgator ,blue host.There are several options for hosting platform A dot.com domain will give you better visibility.

If you are quite serious with your blog and you have some big plan with it then I will suggest you to buy a self hosted domain and take shared server (quite cheap than dedicated server). Like Tina, I also suggest wordpress theme because its easy.
My blog was a wordpressblog but I purchased my domain name sayeridiary.com for 12$ yearly, so it was hosted under wordpress but I had my own domain name. Now I have changed my hosting also.
Now blog looks more professional and I have so many customization options, I have C-pannel and everything.

You can get a custom domain name and hosting plan to make your blog look more professional. There's no harm in being on a free Blogspot plan as long as you consider your blog to be a hobby blog. But if you want to work through it or delve in the stats then a custom domain and hosting are important.
Custom domains are shared hosting are quite cheaper and you can look through the options. In case you want to move to Wordpress you can do that now - I find Wordpress easier to edit.
My site Tina Basu was on Blogspot earlier and I like the decision of moving to WordPress.

This is hosted on blogger. Blogger hosting is free you need one fomain for gowithvimal.com your website will also available on gowithvimal.blogspot.com
Go in future you have to redirect your website url www.gowithvimal.blogspot.com to www.gowithvimal.com
This will send all user blogspot.com to .Com and you will not lose your SEO. Also all the traffic , ranking ,index are safe.
One more benefit from blogger hosting is that you don't have to pay.
If you move to wordpress then you will loose your SEO. Also you have to Pay hosting fee to wordpress. Also you will have to learn how wordpress work .
Blogger perfect option for you. just buy a domain and go on.
