Setup Your Custom Domain on Blogger with Himalayan Host
Blogger is a free blog publishing tool from Google for sharing text, photos and videos. Generally, blogs are hosted by Google of blogspot.com
In order to link your domain to your blog, you need to take several simple steps:
1) Set up your domain in your Blogger account.
- When you logging to https://blogger.com click on the name of your blog you wish to map a domain to
2)Click setting to the left side of dashboard
Here you need to add domain name you purchased and after adding the domain name, it will give two CNAME records and 4 A records which we will need in the next step.
Click on + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog, and add the domain name which you have purchased.
Note: You need to add domain with www as gsmnepalzone.com (See above screenshot for better understanding)
Once you have added the domain name with www, you will see an error saying “We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12..” and you will get the CNAME record that you need to configure (See below screenshot)
Now once you have these CNAME details, it’s time to login to your domain control panel, and make changes.
3)Setting up CNAME and A Record for BlogSpot Custom-Domain Name
- Login to your customer account dashboard & click on Manage DNS. You will see a screen like this:
We should enter the cname record as soon in the above screenshot.
Like this you need to have total 4 A record and your final screen for A record will look like this. Here are the I.P. address of 4 A record which you need to add.
If the CNAME & A record has been updated globally, this time instead of showing error “We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12.“, your custom domain will start working. In my case, it took only 5 minutes.
If you see error that means, you need to wait for some more hours to add the custom domain name. So, here is the final screenshot which I see.
One last thing:
Also, you need to click on Edit here, and redirect non www version of your domain to www. Simply click on Edit and check the options which says “Redirect xxxx.com to www.xxxx.com”
