How To Setup Custom Domain To BlogSpot Blog?

Setup Custom Domain To BlogSpot Blog

Google Blogger allows you to create a free blog with a free domain name. However, if you have purchased the domain name and want to configure the custom domain name to the blogger blog, you can. Blogger provides an option to configure a custom domain.

I am assuming that you have purchased the domain name from GoDaddy and want to map it to the BlogSpot blog.

GoDaddy is a top-rated domain registrar service provider. We can buy a domain name starting just at $1. There are few things that you need to consider before purchasing a domain name. However, I would recommend you to read the below articles before buying the domain name.

This short tutorial will teach you to map a GoDaddy domain name to a Blogspot blog. Let’s start it.

Log in to your Blogger account and go to Setting » Basic

In the publishing tab, you will see the blog address.

Click on the Set up third-party URL for your blogput your domain name, which you owned (purchased from GoDaddy) and save it.

You will get an error with some information. Be patient and keep this window open. 

Click DNS Setting File and Download the Zone file. 

Now, log in to your GoDaddy account and select your domain name.

Click on the Manage » DNS Zone File, delete all existing records which GoDaddy added by default, and Click Import Zone File

Select your Zone file that you have downloaded and Save it. 

Now go to Blogger and put your domain name and save it. It will save successfully.

You can test the domain name mapping by going to the browser and open your blog URL. It might take 24 hours to reflect the complete changes. That’s it.

If you like the above tutorial, then share it with your friends.
