Here in this article, I will give you a step by step procedure on how you can use your custom domain name on Blogger.
First of all, you need to buy a domain name, if you don’t have one.
You can register your domain name from the link below:
After purchasing a domain name, Login into your control panel, and click on the domain name which you want to set up.
Now login into you Blogger Account and Click on the Blog Name that you will like to setup with your new domain name.
Now click on Settings, which is on the left-hand side, and under settings click on Basic.
Under Publishing Click on “Set up a third-party URL for your blog“.
Enter your domain name in the box and click on Save.
After you click on save Blogger will throw an error like the one you see in the following screenshot.
You will need to add the another CNAME record provided by Blogger in the Manage DNS panel.
To add the CNAME, again go to CNAME Records, Add CNAME Record.
Copy the host name and value provided by blogger (as shown in the above image) and paste the hostname in the “Host Name” field and destination value in the “Value” field. Click Add Record.
After you have added the CNAME records, your CNAME record should look like this:
Now that you have successfully added two CNAMEs, it will take approximately 1 to 2 hours (or less than 5mins, ) for these records to get propagated and after which you can click on save.
Now you have setup www.yoursite.com, but what if someone tries to search for yoursite.com?
Then the browser will not be able to reach you.
For this, you have to create a redirect from yoursite.com to www.yoursite.com
Go to settings > Basic
Just check the box which redirects yoursite.com to www.yoursite.com and then click on Save.
That’s all .. You are all setup…
