How To Add Your Domain to Blogger Tutorial

August 16, 2014

I recently had the joy of changing my own blog from .blogspot to a .com!! It took me forever (5 hours) to figure out how to get the domain to actually work. I kept running into this problem:

The error of not being able to verify. So after many tries and fails, I finally figured out how to do it!

I am going to share with you how to get your domain name into your blogger blog, with step by step photos!!

Are you ready to get started??!!!

Ok, if you look were it says enter the following two CNAMES:

Those four codes you will need to enter into the site you bought your domain. I bought mine from GoDaddy so I will show you how I did mine:

Go into your account and click on your domain name-

This will open up to look like this:

You will need to click on the DNS ZONE FILE next to settings. 

This will open up to look like this:

Go to Add a record you see in BLUE and it will give you options. Click on CNAS (alias). You will need to go back to your blogger and copy and paste the top code they gave you. It will look just like this when you enter it in:

Now add another with the second code that is in your blogger dashboard- I can show you an example but the code will be unique to you and your blog/domain, you cannot copy and paste this.

Add the one in green into the HOST spot and the red one into the POINTS TO area.

Now click finish. Go back into your blogger dashboard and re-enter your domain name into the 3rd party area. You will get something that looks like this: 

This shows that the .com is active but the .blogspot  redirects, which means anyone who clicks on a link or types in your blog with the blogspot, it will still go to your webpage!!

Congrats! You are now officially a .COM!!!
