Easy DNS Settings For Blogger Domains

UPDATE: Please read a Far easy one step process by clicking this link -> Blogger Domain Settings Simplfied

DNS setttingsAfter purchasing a domain from a hosting service you need to make some DNS settings in order to associate your new custom domain with your blogger blog. If you have bought the domain from blogger then you don't need to read this post but you have bought the domain from a different hosting company then keep reading.
DNS stands for Domain Name System. It is the management system that controls domain use. Inside your DNS management page you will find two records entitled as CNAME records and A-Records. We will need to set up a CNAME record only in order to connect your domain to your blog. So lets get to work.

Creating a CNAME Record For Your Custom Domain

Kindly follow these easy steps:
  1. Log in to your Hosting Service's Website account
  2. Go To DNS Management page. You will have to locate this link or tab yourself. Look here and there unless you find the DNS page on your dashboard.
  3. Click on Enable Advance Settings if you see any such link else proceed
  4. Now Find the CNAME tab and go there
  5. Inside your CNAME window where it asks for Name then simply enter "www" and where it asks for Host Name/Alias then enter  ghs.google.com
  6. If you found some data filled  then replace it with the data in step#5
  7. Save your settings and you are all set!

Creating A-Records

This option will redirect your visitors from a naked domain (mybloggertricks.com) to your full domain (www.MybloggerTricks.com) Most visitors don't type the www before your domain and if you don't create a A-record your visitors will see an error page. So you must create a A-Record.
  1. Inside your Hosting Service Dashboard find A-records under DNS
  2. Inside the A-record page enter your domain name as mybloggertricks.com without the www
  3. Now list the I.P. addresses given below in the "A" section . Remember that you will have to create a new A-record for each I.P address that means 4 A-records.

     4.  You are finally done!
Now wait for 10-15 minutes till your DNS settings are activated and then jump to the next part of the tutorial.

Setting up Domain on blogger

  1. Now log in to your Blogger account and go to Settings > Publishing
  2. Click the link that says switch to custom domain
custom domain settings
      3.   Now enter your full Domain URL inside the box (like www.mybloggertricks.com)
submit url
       4. Done! You have successfully redirected your .blogspot.com domain to your custom .com domain. It will take at most 48 hours for all DNS servers to get updated and then you can happily access your blog with your full fresh new branded name. :)

DNS Settings for Godaddy and 1and1

If you have purchased the domain from these services then you can try this direct method.
  1. Log in to your account at www.godaddy.com.
  2. Open the Domains tab and select My Domain Names. You'll be directed to the Domain Manager page.
  3. Click the domain that you'd like to use with your blog.
  4. Click the Total DNS Control And MX Records link at the bottom of the section entitled Total DNS.
  5. Click Add New CNAME Record in the box labelled CNAMES (aliases). If you've already created a CNAME record for your blog's address, click the pencil icon next to the existing CNAME record.
  6. For the Name, enter only the subdomain of the address you want to use for your blog. For example, if you picked www.mydomain.com as your address, enter www here.
  7. Enter ghs.google.com as the Host Name. Specify a TTL or use the default setting of 1 hour.
  8. Click OK, and then click OK again.
  1. Log in to your account at https://admin.1and1.com
  2. If it's not already selected, click the Administration tab.
  3. Click Domains. The Domain Overview page appears.
  4. From the New drop-down menu, select Create Subdomain. (If you've already created a subdomain for your blog's address, skip to step six.)
  5. Enter only the subdomain you want to use, and click OK. For example, if you chose www.mydomain.com for your blog's address, you should enter www here.
  6. Select the checkbox next to the subdomain that you will be using. (Example: www.mydomain.com)
  7. From the DNS menu, select Edit DNS Settings.
  8. Click the radio button next to CNAME.
  9. Enter ghs.google.com next to Alias.
  10. Click OK.

But when i change to custom domain in blogger it gives error.The DNS record for your domain is not set up correctly yet. If you just purchased this domain the set up process may take up to a day.
    Does this error will be removed after one day or i did not configured it properly.

  14. I Purchased A Domain.
    Completely DNS Forwarded It.
    In Blogger When I'Am Setting It Is Says"Another blog or Google Site is already using this address."
    What Should I Do Mr.Zahai.

  15. Can i use an international domain, like .ae and .eg with blogger?

  16. Looks like I missed a lot of comments here.

    You only need to Create one Cname Record and 4 A-Records from DNS Zone. No matter what web hosting you be using. after that simple set your blogger settings.

    Check your others blogs in your account. you might have mistakenly redirected the URL there. Check settings for Domain for each blog.

    @Blog team
    Of course you can! :)
