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.

2. Create necessary records for your domain in your Namecheap account in the following way:

- 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 and 216.239.38.21
- CNAME for www mapped to ghs.google.com
- CNAME with values provided in the Blogger account


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

3. Please ensure there are no conflicting records (A, CNAME, URL redirect records with different values but set for the same hosts) for your domain. If there are any, you will need to remove it.

Here is the example of conflicting records:


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