How to – Blogger Custom Domain CNAME Settings

If you want to use a custom domain (main or sub) for your blogger page below are the settings you should apply on your cpanel:

GENERIC INFO

  • Log in to your hosting provider account
  • Go to your DNS settings page. (It could be named as DNS Zone Editor, Advanced DNS Zone Editor, DNS Manager etc. depending on your hosting provider)
  • Add your CNAME settings here.
  • Where it asks for Name simply enter “www”  or “www.yourname.com”, you can also put in a subdomain here like “i.ll.do”. For the Host Name/Alias/Adress enter ghs.google.com
  • For the TTL value enter something like 30
  • Save your settings.
