At the very beginning when I started writing blog, my blog was blogspot blog. I faced some problem to set up custom domain due to least knowledge about it.But it is very easy to setup if you will follow this procedure. Before setting up custom domain a question appeared in my mind why should I set domain leaving blogspot because there was no problem with blogspot. After some research I realized I should set up domain. In a post I discus “Why you should set up custom domain to your blogspot blog”. I recommended you to buy domain from Godaddy because they sell domain at minimum rate.
Now I am starting this tutorial and you follow this simple steps and set up your domain.
Step 1. Buy a domain from Godaddy . If already bought domain then Log in.
Step 2.Click on Domain Launch. c
Step 3. Now to go DNS Manager.
Step 4. Go to zone file editor.
Step 5. Before working in edit zone you should log in your Blogger.com account and go setting menu. Under setting menu you will see publishing blog address. There is a link “Add Custom Domain” click on it.
Step 6. Type your domain name www.yourdomain.com and save. You will see a massage ” We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain”. No problem this is normal. Under this massage you will see DNS seting like “Host field” and “Points to”. You can understand seeing this image.
Step 7. Now come back at Godaddy “Zone file editor” You will see two points 1.Host 2.Point to. You have to edit CNAME here. You can understand seeing image at step 6 point 1 & 2. Now click on “Quick Add”. Write www under “host” and write ghs.google.com under “point to” and save.
Again click on Quick Add ,edite your CNAME on “host” and “point to” and save it. For better understand please see image in step 6 point number 2.
Step 8. Under ” A Host” you have to edit four IP address by clicking on “Quick Add”
and write @ on ” Host” and save it.
This setting will take maximum 48 hours time. But in my experience it is take 1 hour. I recommend you, after save all setting leave this for one hour.
Step 9. After one hour log in your blogger.com account and go to setting and add custom domain with your domain and save. Now your blog is ready with your domain name.
