How to Setup Custom Domain on Blogger Blogs

Want to give your blogspot or blogger blog little more authority and professional touch by using a custom domain like “yourblogname.com”. Well! It’s very easy to do. The following tutorial takes you through all the necessary steps for hosting your blogger blog on a custom domain.

Custom Domain For Blogspot Blogs

STEP 1: Buy a Custom Domain for Your Blogger Blog

First of all you will have to buy a domain name from an authorized domain registrar. There are some established and famous ones like: GoDaddy, BigRock etc. Sign up with one of these services and buy a domain name.

STEP 2: Configure Your DNS Settings

In this step, it is assumed that you have already purchased a domain name from a domain registrar. In order to point your custom domain to your blogger blog, you need to configure your DNS settings. DNS Stands for Domain Name System that gives your site address a unique name. This can be configured from the dashboard of your account with the domain registrar from whom you have already bought your unique domain name.

Go to the control panel in your domain name registrar’s website and select the option for DNS settings. Now you can find an option to enter your CNAME records.
Entering Your CNAME Records

When asked for NAME, Enter: www

When asked for HOST NAME, Enter: ghs.google.com


Entering your A-Records

Enter your domain name in the format: example.com and create four A-records using the four different Google IPs listed below

216.239.32.21
216.239.34.21
216.239.36.21
216.239.38.21

Half the job done! A bit more to go!

STEP 3: Configuring Your Blogger Settings

Before getting started with this step, you have to wait for about an hour so that your DNS settings get activated. Now you have to go to Blogger Dashboard>>Settings>>Basic>>Publishing. Now click the link to add a custom domain.
Enter the Custom Domain Name You Have Purchased For Your blog

Now click on “Switch to Advanced Settings”

Add Custom Domain For Your Blogger Blog
