How to Set Up Custom Domain Name For blogger Blog

For a professional blogger, custom domain name for his blog is must and this tutorial explains step by step procedure to add it for a blogspot blog. It also explains how to redirect root page and other posts successfully to the respective pages in new address. This tutorial shows a practical example by redirecting a blogspot address to custom address. I am redirecting to It is a two step procedure. First step is to enter CNAME and a-records in domain (registrar website) control panel and second step is to enter the new address which you want to point to your blogspot blog.

1. How to Enter CNAME and A-Records For Your Blogger Blog

Before set domain name pointing to your blogger site from blogger account, you must enter the CNAME and A-records in the domain registrar's control panel.To do this step, you must log on to registrar's website. Under domain management, you can find DNS (Domain Name System) settings. In that page, you can enter following information. For more information, I recommend you to refer the steps mentioned in the link below.
Redirect Naked Namecheap URL to WWW Version

CNAME should point to
A-records should point following 4 IP addresses.

It may take hours to activate the DNS settings you entered in registrars website. After this you should make following changes in blogger account.

2. Add Custom Domain in Blogger Account for Your Blog
  1. Sig in to Your blogger account and click on your blog listed here

  2. Click on Settings

  3. Click on Settings and click Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog link under Publishing

  4. Now enter the address you have purchased

  5. You must enter WWW version of the name

  6. Now the address looks like

  7. If you haven't added CNAME details at domain control panel, you will see following error.

    If you are seeing the alert, "We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12", you must crosscheck the CNAME details entered under DNS settings in domain registrar's control panel.

Now the custom address for your blogspot site is configured and you can access your blog through the new address. Now onwards redirects to All the published posts too will be redirected to respective pages.

  1. 301 redirection from old URL to new URL:

    Backlinks, bookmarks, PR etc gained by your Posts URLs will be transferred to the new URLs.

  2. Post wise redirection:

    Each blog posts will be redirected to the respective new URLs.

  3. It is easy to promote a custom name rather than .blogspot address

Last point is also very important as first two points because .blogspot or WordPress addresses are difficult to promote and look unprofessional. There is not much financial troubles associated with buying a new domain name because all you have to spent is around $10 per year as the registration fee. I bet, any serious blogger can earn more than $10 per year from AdSense through this site. I have been blogging since my college days but after two years from the starting day only I recognized the importance of having a domain name. Once I bought the address, I understood its importance. It gave a professional touch and gradually helped me to increase the visitors count. One advantage of starting with blogspot is the facility to use custom name even if you are hosting your site in their server. So you can avoid the expenses of buying a server space. Definitely a custom domain name can make your blog promotion easier. To learn about the promotion, click on the link below.
