How to point a BlogSpot blog to a custom domain?(Last Updated On: January 19, 2019)
So ,now you want to move from yoursite.blogspot.com to yoursite.com . I think that’s a good decision by you. I too started blogging on blogger as it is easy and free. But if you want to drive more traffic and want to build a brand of yourself you should have a custom domain. Custom domains cost very less between $6 to $12 , if you want to grab extension like .com,.in,.net .But,Some extension like .mobi, .tech ,.guru may cost more. But my personal suggestion will be don’t buy these extensions as .com is still the most popular one.Now moving on to my topic i assume you have a blogger blog. If you don’t have one check out the link below.
Step 1: Log into blogger and choose your blog
If you have a blogger blog , log in to your account and you will see the following-
Click on the settings
Step 2: put your custom domain in third-party domain settings
In place of techsearchonline.com write your own domain name. You can see in the below screenshot CNAMEs appear for updating. No need of writing the second CNAME ,it will work without that.
Step 3:update CNAME in domain control panel.
write this cname (ghs.google.com) in your domain settings which is same for all . The second CNAME is only to verify your ownership of this domain(different for different users).
Step 4: update A-records in domain control panel.
Now next step is to update your A-records, which links your naked domain (yoursite.com) to an actual site (www.yoursite.com). If you skip this step, visitors who leave off the “www” will see an error page. To update your A-records you have to go to you domain control page. List the I.P. addresses shown below in the “A” section. You’ll need to create four separate A-records which point to four different Google IPs.
keep in mind that it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for the DNS update.
