If you didn’t know how to create a blogspot blog. Then follow below steps.
- To create a free BlogSpot blog first go Blogger.com and login with your gmail account.
- Then click on “New Blog“
- Then enter your blog title, choose a domain name, choose a template and press the create blog button.

But after publishing your blog your blog domain looks like yourdoamin.blogspot.com. Not yourdomain.com because you are using a sub domain of blogspot.com. You can use this sub domain [yourdoamin.blogspot.com] for lifetime without any problem. But if you want to use a custom domain like- yourdomain.com, yourdomain.in, yourdomain.info, yourdomain.co etc. then you have to manually setup your domain on that blogger blog. Today In this post I’m going to show you how to setup custom domain name in blogger.
Setup Custom Domain Name In Blogger
First buy a prefect domain name. To buy a perfect domain name check this 12 rules to choose a prefect domain. To get domain name at low price try this domain name provider Ex- bigrock.com, godaddy.com, namecheap.com etc. I recommended check all of them compare their features and price and then buy. Normally A .com extension domain name will cost around 1-15$ /year.
In this tutorial I choose Bigrock as a domain name provider. You can choose any other provider. All Other domain name provider setup process is almost same.
Full Process –
First login into your blogger account.
Then go to setting option.
Now scroll down, you will see publishing option with your blog address.
Just below your blog address click on add a third party custom domain.
Now put your new domain name with www. Such as www.yourdomain.com
Now you will see an error like this ”We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain.Error 12”
Now According to image download your DNS setting file.
Now open your domain name provider dashboard in new tab. Then go to the domain name management then go-
DNS management >> Manage DNS
It will popup a new window–
click on A Record >> Add A Record option.
Now open your downloaded DNS setting file and add only destination IPv4 address accordingly above image and leave host name blank.
Same process add this 4 records –
Now open CNAME record and add a new CNAME record, you will see a form that starts with host name. Now again open your DNS setting file
Same processes add another CNAME Record which will provided in DNS file.
Now reload your blogger blog account. Again add your domain name in blog address section with www. I think if you do all above process correctly as I mention, you will see your custom domain successfully added in blogger. Just click redirect option then OK.
If after doing all above process you get same error. Then give some time for DNS propagation. DNS propagation sometimes takes 24-48 hours. But normally within few minutes it works. [Its totally depend on domain name provider]
