Re-Directing Your Domain Name to Work with Blogger

You can establish a more professional identity for your Blogger® blog by configuring it to point to one of the domain names you registered through us. Instead of entering your Blogger URL to view your latest blog post, visitors enter your domain name's URL. For example, by mapping your coolexample.blogspot.com blog to your www.coolexample.com domain name, visitors focus solely on your domain name.
To point your Blogger blog to your domain name, you set up domain name mapping, which configures your blog settings and domain name. You update your settings in your Blogger account and our Domain Manager:
  1. Park the domain name you want to use with your Blogger account on our parked nameservers. For more information, see Parking Your Domain Name.
  2. Edit the www CNAME record for the domain name you want to use with your Blogger account. This update tells the Web browser to open your Blogger blog when visitors enter your domain name's URL in the browser address bar. You can automatically configure your DNS with this tool.
  3. Forward your domain name to use www. This step ensures your Blogger blog displays for visitors who go to your domain name with or without the www prefix. For example, it displays for visitors who entered both www.coolexample.com and coolexample.com.
  4. Configure your Blogger account to use your domain name.
Any DNS changes you make can take up to 48 hours to reflect on the Internet.
