What is Blogger.com?

If you don't want to spend a single cent on setting up a blog, then Blogger is the best choice for you. Owned by Google since 2003, Blogger offers free blogging services (i.e., free domain name and hosting). However, your domain name will get a .blogspot.com extension (i.e., yourdomainname.blogspot.com). It is for this reason that a lot of Blogger users--especially those who want to create a professional website--prefer to have a .com domain.


What is Namecheap?


Namecheap allows you to register a domain name or host a website for a fee. Compared to Godaddy, domain name renewal in Namecheap is much cheaper. So, if you are planning to register your domain a domain name for a long period of time, then Namecheap is the best choice for you. 


Don't have a custom domain name yet? Go to Namecheap now and place an order. It only costs $10 per year plus free WhoisGuard for 1 year.

First things first. Create an account in Blogger and purchase a custom domain name in Namecheap. 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 2: Type the custom domain name (e.g., www.templatetest02.com) that you bought from Namecheap 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 Step 4.

Step 4: Delete the CNAME Record with parkingpage.namecheap.com value then click Add New Record > choose A Record > input @ in the host field > then put 216.239.32.21 > Automatic. Do the same with the following: 

  • 216.239.34.21
  • 216.239.36.21
  • 216.239.38.21
Afterwards, click Add New Record > choose CNAME Record > input www in the host field > then put ghs.google.com > 30 mins.

Lastly, click Add New Record > choose CNAME Record > input the data provided in your blogger account (left; see image below) > input the data provided in your blogger account in the value field (right, see image below)> 30 mins




Click save changes. If you did it correctly, it will look something like this.



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