Setup a custom domain or subdomain for Blogger

Blogger is one of the most popular blogging engines available for free by Google. We at r00tb0x.com are actually fans of blogger and do own a couple of blogs which are hosted there! This article will explain how to setup your own domain to host a blog on Blogger.

Whether you want www.yourdomain.com or subdomain.yourdomain.com pointing to a Blogger blog, the process is perfectly identical. First things first - add the following DNS records:

A          www  216.239.32.21
A          www  216.239.34.21
A          www  216.239.36.21
 
CNAME      www  ghs.google.com



Of course you can replace 'www' with any subdomain of your choice.

Once the DNS is setup and pointing to Blogger, next step is to tell Blogger about your custom domain name. From the dashboard go to the Settings menu and choose 'Publishing':
Finally enter your custom domain in the advanced settings section:

Good! now www.yourdomain.com will point to your Blogger account and vice-versa!
