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

Domain Registration

Blogger offers two free publishing options for your blog: hosting on Blogspot (example.blogspot.com) and hosting on your own custom domain (www.example.com 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.

Here we are going to Learn you how you can use your own domain (Bought From Alpha Net) For Blogspot Site.

 

1. In your Top Level Domain Control Panel: 

In order to link your blog to your custom domain, follow the instructions below to enter your "CNAME" and "A-records."

From your Domain Control Panel Go - Manage Order > List/Search Order > Click Your Domain> Manage DNS (Domain Name System)

You Have to go to your Domain Control Panel then you can Find out Manage DNS option.

After that find Out A Record Option.

CNAME

Where it says Name, simply enter "www" and list ghs.google.com as the Host Name.

 

A-records (optional)
The following action links your naked domain (example.com) to your actual site (www.example.com). 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

 

1. In your Blogspot Site Panel: 

Update your Blogger settings

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.

Then, click on "Switch to advanced settings

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.

Congratulations, you're all set!

Some helpful notes:

  • If your new domain isn't taking you to your blog, wait another day or two to make sure all the DNS servers have been updated. If it still isn't working, contact your registrar to make sure you entered the DNS settings correctly.
  • Your original Blogspot address will automatically forward to your new domain. That way, any existing links or bookmarks to your site will still work.
