How to Point a Domain to Blogger


Generally, blogs are hosted by Google at a subdomain of blogspot.com (for example: www.blog.blogspot.com). However, they can also be hosted on a registered custom domain (like www.guides.com.ng)
In this tutorial, you will learn how to point a domain to blogger. The domain nguides.tk will be used as an example.

What you’ll need
Before you begin this guide you’ll need the following:

A Blogger account.
A functional domain.
Access to a DNS editor (your hosting provider/domain registrar can also be contacted for assistance).
Step 1 — Adding 2 CNAME records
To find the required CNAME records, you will be required to navigate to your blog’s Settings-> Publishing -> +Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog section.
The domain name must be entered in this format: www.nguides.tk.

After that, a screen with the required CNAME records will appear.
These records can be added using any DNS editor. Your hosting provider/domain registrar can also be contacted for assistance. In this example, cPanel’s Advanced Zone Editor will be used.

Editor-cname.
After adding the records, save the settings in your Blogger account and allow up to 24 hours for the DNS settings to be fully propagated.

Step 2 (Optional) — Adding four A records or redirecting to www
An optional step would be to add 4 A records. This way both www and non-www version of your website would load the blog. If you skip this step, visitors who leave off the “www” will see an error page or a different site (depending on your current A record).

To avoid that, A records should be created for these IP addresses:

216.239.32.21

216.239.34.21

216.239.36.21

216.239.38.21

These records may also take up 24 hours to be fully propagated. Now both www.example.com and example.com will open your blog.

Alternatively, it is possible to redirect visitors from non-www to www version of your blog, that way the A records would not be required. It can be done after your domain settings are saved by pressing the Edit button in Blogger Settings.
