  5. Enter the subdomain name. You can use either the naked subdomain or the www version.

    I am using the www version of the subdomain name.

  6. I typed and clicked the save button.

  7. Blogger will show an error indicating you missed the step to update the CNAME on your Domain Control Panel.

    We have not been able to verify your authority in this domain. On your domain registrar's website, locate your Domain Name System (DNS) settings and enter the following two CNAMEs: (Name: www, Destination: and (Name: XXXXX, Destination:

  8. Copy the two CNAME details shown in the error message.

Now you need to log into the Domain Control Panel. I purchased my domain name from Godaddy.

So, I need to add the Blogger CNAME in the Godaddy control panel.

  7. Click the Save button. You need to add the second CNAME too.

  8. Come back to the Blogger settings page and save the custom subdomain name.
