How do I use my domain with my Blogger account?

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 as described here in Step 2: Connect to your non-Google domain from Blogger.

2. Once you have added the domain, you will get two CNAME records that you need to configure along with the A records in your Namecheap account:

- Sign in to your Namecheap account.

- Select Domain List from the left navigation sidebar and click on the Manage button that appears in front of your domain name:  


- Click on the Advanced DNS tab and find the Host records section, then click on the Add New Record button (are you unable to edit host records?):


Here you will need to create 6 records for your domain:

- A Records for @ pointing to

  • 216.239.32.21
  • 216.239.34.21
  • 216.239.36.21
  • 216.239.38.21

- CNAME for www mapped to ghs.google.com
- CNAME with values provided in the Blogger account


3. Once all details are inserted, save them using the Save changes green icon.

It can take approximately 30 minutes for newly-created host records to take effect.

Once the settings are activated, repeat Step 1: Set up your domain in Blogger and follow Step 3 (optional): Redirect from the URL without subdomain to your blog’s URL as it is shown in this guide.
