How do I setup my domain with Blogger/Blogspot?

Enter Keywords:

Setting up your domain with Blogger is a two step process. First, you must create a CNAME record for your blog's address. Second, you must configure Blogger to use your custom domain.

Creating a CNAME record for your domain

  1. Log in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu.
  3. Check the box to the left of the domain name and click the "Nameservers" icon.
  4. Click on the "DNS" tab.
  5. In the "Domain Record" section under "Record Type" select 'A'. You'll need to create four separate 'A' records which point to four different Google IPs. For the first "IP Address or Target Host" box, type in the IP address 216.239.32.21.
  6. Do the same for the other three IP addresses in the fields below - 216.239.34.21, 216.239.36.21 and 216.239.38.21
  7. In the "Subdomain Records" section under "Subdomain", type in www as your first subdomain. Select CNAME as the "Record Type". Under "IP Address or Target Host" type in ghs.google.com (Please note that Blogger may ask you to enter another CNAME record.) You can verify their current settings here.
  8. At the bottom of the page, click on the "Use Dynadot DNS" button.

Your Settings should look similar to what is shown below.




Please note, it might take some time for your changes to propagate.

Configuring Blogger Settings
