How to use custom domain name for your Blog on Blogger (domain name from godaddy) - Explanation with screenshots

                  Go through the following:

Settings to be done on www.blogger.com :

                 In blogger, by default you get one domain name i.e. <Your_blog_name>.blogspot.com (e.g. comrevo.blogspot.com). You can also set custom domain name for your blog. For this, go through the following steps-

1. You have to purchase your own domain name from the domain registrar websites like godaddy.com. 



2. Log in to the www.blogger.com. Click on your blog name for which you want to set custom domain name. Then click on "Settings"

5. In CNAME section, already there will be three entries. You can replace any two of them with the entries you got from blogger. For A section, already there will be one record. You can add extra three records by clicking on "Add Record". Enter the four A entries I have given in above paragraph. Finally its done. Wait for few hours, your custom domain name will start working. 



6.To redirect domainname.com to www.domainname.com, get logged in to www.blogger.com. Go to the Settings->Basic. Click on Edit button in Blog Address section as shown in following snapshot.
