Blogger Or Blogspot is a free blog publishing service powered by Google which lets you publish blog and website for free. Many bloggers started their blogging journey with the Blogger platform. Blogger lets you create a free website with a subdomain like yourblog.blogspot.com. You can use a Custom Domain With Blogger too.
Here you can learn how to setup or point your own custom domain to your Blogger blog which you have purchased from Godaddy.com. For the general Custom Domain (Purchased from any registrar) setup process with a Blogger blog you can read out this post.
Connect Your Domain From Godaddy To Your Blogger Blog:
- At first go to your Blogger dashboard (i.e., your Blogspot account). Click on Settings Option From the left Menu. Then under Blog Address under Publishing option Click on + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog.
- Enter your domain with www as the prefix in the box provided. You must use www because Blogger does not support naked domain (Domain without www or another prefix) pointing. Click on Save button after entering your domain in the box. After clocking Save you will see an error message with some parameters.
- Now login to your GoDaddy account and go to the domain (DNS) management page.
- Click on Add a Record and select CNAME from the dropdown list. Enter the details as shown in the blogger error message
- In the Host* Field write www
- In the Points to* Field write ghs.google.com and click save
- Open TTL menu select Custom then Set the TTL to 600 Seconds (Stands for Time To Live), tells the servers or resolver to cache the older data for this time limit, so if you put this as low as possible your new blogger integration with the custom domain will start working within less time. Minimum is 600 seconds for Godaddy.
- Click Save
Again repeat point 4 above and enter your domain-specific values in the Host* and Points to* fields provided to you by Blogger.
Add A Records:
Now you have to add four Google IPs (See Below) as A – Records to work your integration properly. To do this Click on Add A Record.
- In the Host* Field write @
- In the Points to* Field write four Google IPs one by one four times
- Set the TTL to 600 Seconds
- Click Save
This is the list of Google IPs you have to enter one by one as A-Records.
After finishing all of the above in your domain manage page, log in to Blogger Dashboard again and click on the Save button again. If you again see the error message then wait the time you have set as TTL. If you see the error message after the TTL time you specified then repeat the process again carefully.
