Domains Help

Map my domain to work with Blogger

You can establish a more professional identity for your Blogger blog by configuring it to point to one of the domains 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, visitors focus solely on your domain name.

To point your Blogger blog to your domain name, you'll set up domain name mapping, which configures your blog settings and domain name. You'll update your settings in both your Blogger account and our DNS Manager:

  1. Park the domain name you want to use with your Blogger account on our parked nameservers. For more information, see Park a domain.
  2. Change the CNAME record in your GoDaddy account 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.
  3. Follow the instructions in the link above and make sure to change the Points to section in your CNAME record to: ghs.google.com.

  4. Next, you'll need to create separate A records for each of the IPs listed in step 9 of this Google help article.

    For instructions on configuring separate A records, please visit Add an A record.
  5. Using instructions from the same help article listed above, configure your Blogger account to use your domain name. See instructions below for help with configuring your Blooger account:

To Configure Your Blogger Account

  1. Log in to your Blogger account.
  2. From the Settings tab, select Basic.
  3. Under your Blog Address, click + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog.
  4. In the field next to http://, enter the domain name you want to use.
  5. Complete any other CNAME entries for verification, if applicable.
  6. Click Save.

Any DNS changes you make can take up to 48 hours to reflect on the Internet.
