How to setup or map Custom Domain in Blogger (Simplest Methods)

Custom domain setup in Blogger.com is used to create your own blog URL.      (for example: from myblog.blogspot.com to myblog.com). When you purchase a domain from Godaddy.com or other domain providers, they assign an IP address (A record and CNAME record) for the domain. Hence, you need to change those records to point to your Blogger.com blog. This post can help you to change the A and CNAME records of your Godaddy account (Can be used for other Domain Providers).

Google offers the option to purchase a custom domain name for your Blogger account if you decide you want one. It's very easy to do, and the process has been made significantly easier since the launch of the Google Domains website. So, why would you want a custom domain? Blogger is one of the biggest internet platforms on the planet, and one of the main reasons for its success is because of the way it handles the creation of custom posts for individual users or groups of users. The way Blogger sees these posts, called "pages", is that each of them is full pages within a larger page, and as a result, they can be hosted on any site through Blogger.

Setting up a custom domain in Blogger is really simple and can be done in minutes. And if you want to spice it up, we’ve got some neat ideas for how to do it, too! This blog post will teach you everything you need to know to set up your Blogger account with a custom domain. From buying the domain itself to configuring the DNS settings on Blogger and setting up your email address in Gmail, there are various things you'll need to do. But don’t worry, this guide will take you through each step so you can easily navigate the process on your own.

What is Domain

In a nutshell, Domain is the top-level web address for your blog (it's where your visitors click to go to your blog). You can have a custom domain too, but if you already have an existing Blogger blog, you'll need to buy a name from your Domain provider and move the URL location to your own custom domain. You can either buy a domain with all the bells and whistles, like .biz or .com, or a basic domain. We recommend buying a “.com” domain since you can set up all the same customizations that you'd do with a more professional .com. Domain Options Before we get into the setup, you'll want to go to your Blogger dashboard and find the New section. Click on “Create” and you'll be taken to a very familiar form with quite a few different options.


Follow the steps to Map Custom Domain in Blogger:

1. Login to your Godaddy account and click on the My Products.

2. Under Domains, you will see the list of your domain names. Click on Manage DNS of your desired domain. You’ll be directed to the Domain DNS Manager page.


3. At the top of the Domain Manager Page, you will see a section Records under the heading DNS Manager, where you can edit the DNS configuration of your domain.


4. Under the A(Host) Tab of the DNS manager, enter the 4 IP addresses as below, one-by-one, using the Quick add button, to change the A records.


216.239.32.21

216.239.34.21

216.239.36.21

216.239.38.21

5. Next click on the Add button in the box labeled CNAME(alias). If you’ve already created a CNAME record for your blog’s address, click the pencil icon next to the existing CNAME record.

You can create the CNAME from your BlogSpot website admin Panel Going Settings > Publishing > Custom Domain 


Now Click on Custom Domain


Add your already Purchased Domain Name in the box and Click Save

Now you will receive an error Message with the CNAME of your Website, You will get 2 CNAMES both are need to add into the Domain Records as CNAME.

6. Now come to Domain website and After you are done adding The 2 - CNAMES and 4 - A Records , click on Save Changes to save your edited data.

7. For the Name, enter only the sub-domain of the address you want to use for your blog. For example, if you picked www.myblog.com as your address, enter www here.

8. Enter ghs.google.com as the Host Name. Specify a TTL or use the default setting of 1 hour.


Setting up your own Blogger account with a custom domain is one of the easiest things you can do for your site, and it’s something that’s relatively easy to set up in the first place. Plus, you’ll be able to decide when to use a custom domain and when to use your real (legitimate) Blogger account. By having both on the same domain, you can serve two different, but related sites, which is an incredible way to simplify your entire site and system.

This is how you can change the existing domain IP address that now points to your Blogger IP address. Wait for few hours for the changes to take effect in your IP records. After that, you can say bye-bye to your old Blogger.com blog URL by changing it with your custom domain name.
