Blogger Custom domains are more like a Vanity URL for your BlogSpot blog. It will allow you to create a better and easy to remember URL. (for example : from yourblog1234.blogspot.com to yourblog.com)

Blogger allows you to seamlessly integrate with any domain name. To start off you have to make your GoDaddy domain to point to Google's servers. This simple tutorial will guide you step by step with screenshots and instructions to make it easier for you.


Blogger Custom Domain on GoDaddy



  1. Buy a domain name fromGoDaddy.com. Domain name are not free but they cost around 10-12$ per year. While buying make sure that youdon't buy the hosting or website builder packages from GoDaddy as these are not required for setting up a Blogger blog.

  2. Once you have bought the domain name of your choice, login to your GoDaddy account and go to the domains section as shown in the below screenshot
    godaddy-domains
    Now click on the "Domain Details" of the domain which you have bought.
    godaddy-domain-details

  3. Go to the "DNS Zone File" Section and click on "Add Record"godaddy-dns-zone-file

  4. Fill in the details for the CNAMErecord as shown in the image and click "Add Another"
    godaddy-cname-record

    The details to use are :
    Record Type : CNAME
    Host : www
    Points to : ghs.google.com
    TTL : 1 hour

  5. Now we have to create 4 more records in a similar fashion. The details to fill up while creating the records are as below






































    Sl #Record TypeHostPoints toTTL
    1A@216.239.32.211 Hour
    2A@216.239.34.211 Hour
    3A@216.239.36.211 Hour
    4A@216.239.38.211 Hour

    Once done, you should see only 4 records under the A Host section and those should be:
    godaddy-a-records

    Any other A record shown under the A Host section with Host value set to @should be deleted using the Delete icon under Actions(This step is very important)

  6. Now click on "Save Changes
    godaddy-save-changes

    You are now Done with GoDaddy settings. You now have to configure your Blogger blog to publish to this new domain.


Publishing BlogSpot blog to Custom Domain


Now we will configure the Blogger blog to publish itself to the new Custom Domain name.

  1. Login to your Blogger Dashboard and Navigate to Settings > Basic and click on the Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog link
    third-party-url-blogger

  2. Provide your Custom Domain URL and click the Save Button
    third-party-url-settings-bloggerWhen you click save, you might get an error like the one shown below
    verification-error-blogger

    This means that Blogger wants us to create another CNAME record on GoDaddy to verify that you are the owner of the domain. The values forHost and Points To should match what’s shown on the Blogger error. An example based on the above error is shown below.
    verification-cname-godaddy-example

    Click Finish and Save Changes once again. Now go back to Blogger and click on the "Save" button once again. This time the verification error should go away.
