Add Custom Domain on Blogger

To install a Custom domain you will have to buy a Custom domain for your Blog. You can buy a domain from Various Domain Selling Websites such as Godaddy, Bigrock or Bluehost.

I bought a dot com domain from Godaddy during Sale so let me do the demo on that domain 😀

  1. First of all Signup or Sign in on www.godaddy.com and choose a domain as your wish
  2. Add it to cart and do the payment and Grab your domain.

Now login to your Blogger Dashboard and head over to settings>basics and there you will get an option Publishing >Blog address > + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog:

setup-a-3rd-party-url-for-your-blogspot

Click on Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog option and Put the custom domain which you recently bought.

Now Click on Save option. After saving you will get an error –We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12.

On your domain registrar’s website, locate your Domain Name System (DNS) settings and enter the following two CNAMEs:

Name, Label or Host fieldDestination, Target or Points To field
wwwghs.google.com

See our detailed instructions on providing CNAMEs for various registrars or see the full settings instructions for more details. If you are having trouble entering the second CNAME to dv.googlehosted.com, you can verify your ownership of this domain with a TXT record through Google Webmaster Tools here instead.
If your domain provider supports it, download the DNS settings file.

You will get this option there. Now simply copy the CNAME details, and signin to your domain registrar account. In my case it was Godaddy. 

Setting up CNAME and A Record for BlogSpot Custom-Domain Name

You will get this type of dashboard, Click on the domain name and click on DNS Zone.

Click on Add Record option from the pop-up select CNAME record & add both the record one by one from your BlogSpot setting screen. Here is both the image to make it easy for you to understand the setup.

Click  on Add another & copy the second CNAME record from your BlogSpot page:

Nopw click on Finish Button and save the settings.

Adding A records to your Domain DNS 

This is the last step. You have to add 4 IP Address in your Domain DNS. Don’t worry it’s totally a same process all you need to do is choose A Record instead of using CNAME. I am showing you on Example and rest is same.

Click on add A Record select A name under record type. In the Hostname part add @ and on Destination IPv4 address add 216.239.34.21add-cname-record-godaddy-blogspot

Like this you need to have total 4 A record and your final screen for A record will look like this. Here are the  I.P. address of 4 A record which you need to add.

216.239.32.21
216.239.34.21
216.239.36.21
216.239.38.21

After completing the above steps, save the settings. Usually it takes around 2-3minutes to setup but it may take upto 12 to 48 hours so don’t get panic just keep calm and wait for few time and you are done. 😀

Now install some Beautiful template and start writing. Boom!!! You are done 😀
