How do I use a custom domain name for my blog? - Blogger Help

How do I use a custom domain name for my blog?


Blogger offers two free publishing options for your blog: hosting on Blogspot (example.blogspot.com) and hosting on your own custom domain (Example Domain or foo.example.com). You can change your publishing option at anytime, and your content will always remain unaltered regardless of which of these options you choose.
Whether you want to purchase a new domain through Blogger or publish on a domain which you already own, we'll walk you through the process of setting up your blog for a custom domain.



What would you like to do?

  • Buy a custom domain through Blogger.
  • Host my blog on a URL that I already own. [chagua hii]


Where would you like to host your blog?

  • On a top-level domain (Example Domain). [chagua hii]
  • On a subdomain (foo.example.com).



  1. Find the control panel on your domain registrar's website, and locate your DNS (Domain Name System) settings. In order to link your blog to your custom domain, follow the instructions below to enter your "CNAME" and "A-records."
    CNAME
    Where it says Name, simply enter "www" and list ghs.google.com as the Host Name. See our detailed instructions on providing CNAMEs for various registrars. If yours isn't listed, or if you run into other difficulties, contact your registrar directly and they can help you out.
    A-records (optional)
    The following action links your naked domain (example.com) to your actual site (Example Domain). If you skip this step, visitors who leave off the "www" will see an error page.
    Enter your domain name in the format example.com, and list the I.P. addresses shown below in the "A" section. You'll need to create four separate A-records which point to four different Google IPs.216.239.32.21
    216.239.34.21
    216.239.36.21
    216.239.38.21

Update your Blogger settings


  1. Before you move onto this step, wait about an hour for your DNS settings to activate. If you attempt to change the publishing settings before the DNS changes activate, then we'll let you know with a warning message.
    Now it's time to make sure Blogger knows about your custom domain so that Google can direct readers to your blog. Just head back to Blogger and update the information on your Settings | Basic tab. Find the area for "Publishing," and click the link to add a custom domain.

  3. Enter in the URL for your custom domain in the text box provided, and click Save. That's it! Your blogspot.com address will soon redirect to your new custom domain -- be patient, as it might take up to 24 hours for the redirect to start working.
