HOW TO SET UP YOUR CUSTOM DOMAIN ON BLOGGER BLOG


Many new bloggers are often are often faced the difficulty of setting up custom domain with their BlogSpot (Blogger) blog. I have taken the pain to write about this and you are definitely going to find it interesting.

Are you wondering how to purchase a very cheap .COM domain? You can read my article.



IMPORTANT: How to get a .com domain for as low as just $1 on GoDaddy.

How to Change From .blogspot.com to .com on Blogger

You've successfully purchased a .com domain from GoDaddy or any domain seller of your choice. The problem now is "how do I set up my .com domain name on blogger blog". You are in the right place. I will walk you through this problem very easily. Lets get started.

NOTE

Before I go on , note that this tutorial centers around GoDaddy but if you follow these steps, you can conveniently set up your blog with custom domain from any domain company.

Follow the steps outlined below...

STEP 1

On your GoDaddy dashboard, click on your profile icon at the top right then click "My Products".

STEP 2

While on the products page, you should have something quite similar to the image below.


You should see the domain(s) you have already purchased. Click on "Manage All". Notice that in the image above? If yes, cool. Move on to step 3.

STEP 3

After clicking on "Manage All" as directed in step 3. You should find yourself on a page similar to the image below.


NOTE: In my case, there are no "next steps" because I have already registered and finish the steps.

STEP 4

Click on the ellipsis icon as seen in the image above. After clicking on the ellipsis kind of icon, you should see two possible options which are:
  • Manage DNS
  • DNS Settings
We are only interested in managing the DNS. Therefore, click on "Manage DNS".

STEP 5

As shown in the image below, you will find yourself on a page where there is a table title "records".




NOTE: We are concerned with only three CNAMES. Check the image below and take good note of the area marked out.

STEP 6

We have come a long way. At this point, login into your Blogger dashboard.
Follow the steps outlined below.
  • Navigate to Setting------>>Basic.
  • Under Publishing. Take note of "Blog Address".
  • Click on +Set up a third-party URL for your blog.
  • After that, some options will become available. The heading will become "Third-Party Domain Settings".
  • In the little URL address box, type in the domain name you've just registered including the 'www'. E.g. www.freebiesden.com. Check the image below.

Afterwards, click on Save. You will likely get an error message.
"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".

See the image below for the circled important things.



STEP 7

Take note of the two CNAMES provided exclusively for your blog by Google BlogSpot. E.g.
  • www              ghs.google.com
  • The second one is exclusive to your blog
Check the image above for the circled texts. The reason why I didn't blur it is that I don't use the blog. The second CNAME is always exclusive to individual blogs.

STEP 8
Go back to GoDaddy DNS Records Page in Step 5. You are not concerned with the first CNAME. Just the second and third CNAMES will be changed.
  • The first CNAME with "ftp" as name should not be changed.
  • The second CNAME will be changed. Type in "www" as name and "ghs.google.com" as value. Leave the other setting as provided.
  • The third CNAME will also be changed. Type in the CNAME information which is exclusive to your blog. E.g. xxxxxxx as name and xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx as value. Leave the other settings as provided.

THE LAST STEP
This is the last step and it of great importance. First make sure you go back to Blogger and click save. It should work perfectly now.

Furthermore, while still on the DNS Management Page, scroll down to "FORWARDING".
Under FORWARDING, you will notice:
1. Domain.
2. Subdomain.

Under "Domain", type in your complete registered domain name. E.g. www.freebiesden.com.

ADD A SUBDOMAIN
First click on Add.
1. Under the subdomain, type in the registered domain name without 'www'. E.g. freebiesden.com

2. FORWARD TO
Under the "Forward To" option, type in your complete domain name registered E.g. www.freebiesden.com.



CLICK SAVE AND THATS PRETTY MUCH IT!!
