Last time, I discussed how to setup a custom domain name for blogger blog with Namecheap. Today, I will teach how to do the same in GoDaddy. 

What is Godaddy?

GoDaddy is the biggest competitor of Namecheap. It provides domain registration service at a price. Godaddy also offers other such as hosting and website building. Compared to Namecheap, GoDaddy charges higher domain name renewal. But what makes it attractive particularly to newbies is its $.99 .com domain for 1 year. Just search for promo codes here.

Setting Up a Custom Domain Name for Blogger Blog with Godaddy:


First things first. Create an account in Blogger and purchase a custom domain name in GoDaddy. Follow the steps below afterwards.


Step 1: Log in to your Blogger account then go Settings > Basic. Under the Publishing section, click + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog.




Step 2Type the custom domain name (e.g., www.templatetest02.com) that you bought from GoDaddy and click save. Do not worry if an error will appear saying "We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12." You will see two CNAME records that you need to use in the Step 4.



Step 3: Log in to your GoDaddy account. It will redirect you to a page like this. Click DNS



If it did not redirect you to the page above. Click your Account Name > My Products. You should see the same page above after doing this. Again, click DNS



Step 4Click Add 




Choose 




Input @ in the host field > then put 216.239.32.21 in the Points to field >  choose 1 Hour in the TTL field > click Save.




Do the same with the following:

  • 216.239.34.21
  • 216.239.36.21
  • 216.239.38.21


IMPORTANT: Delete any other type A record with @ name or host value. 


Afterwards, click Add > choose CNAME > input www in the host field > then put ghs.google.com in the Points to field> choose 1 Hour in the TTL field > click Save. If you're successful in doing this, you should see a DNS record like this. 




Lastly, click Add > choose CNAME > input the data provided in your own blogger account (left; see image below) > input the data provided in your own blogger account in the Points to field (right, see image below) > choose 1 Hour in the TTL field > click Save.




Step 5Go back to your blogger third party domain settings page and click save




Step 6: Wait at least an hour before visiting your custom domain name. DNS propagation takes time. In other cases, DNS propagation took 24 hours. Want to know more about DNS propagation? Click here

Bonus tip: If your custom domain name does not work without www., visit your blogger third party domain settings again and tick the same box below.
