How do I point my CNAME to my Blogger website?

Originally from ticket #2139.

If I buy a domain name, can I modify the CNAME to point it to my Blogger website?

--------------------------------------------------

 

Dear Customer,

 

Thank you for contacting us.

Yes, you can easily update your CNAME to point to your Blogger website.

 

To update your CNAME on a new domain registration:

Log in to your Cosmotown account
Click on the Domains on the left
Check the box next to your domain name
Click on the Manage Domains drop down menu
Click on DNS (Zone File) Records
You will see the section to enter CNAMEs there.  You will want to enter 3 separate entries, per the below:

 

Click Quick Add 

In the Host field, leave this section blank

In the Points to field, enter ghs.google.com

In the TTL field, leave it as 21600

Click Save

 

Click Quick Add 

In the Host field, enter www

In the Points to field, enter ghs.google.com

In the TTL field, leave it as 21600

Click Save

 

Click Quick Add 

In the Host field, enter *

In the Points to field, enter ghs.google.com

In the TTL field, leave it as 21600

Click Save

 

You will need to delete the Cosmotown IPs under the A Records, the first block of settings in the Zone File
They will appear as:
www domain name pointed to 54.225.97.249
* domain name pointed to 54.225.97.249
naked domain pointed to 54.225.97.249

 

After everything is finished, click the green Save DNS Zone button at the top of the screen

 

THEN GO TO YOUR BLOGGER ACCOUNT AND UPDATE THE BELOW: 

Update Blogger Settings

Settings | Basic tab

Find the area for "Publishing,"
Click the link to add a custom domain
Click on "Switch to advanced settings."
Under Advance settings, tick "Redirect example.com to www.example.com"
Save

 

If you are transferring your domain, and you have existing hosting, the existing nameservers will import with your transfer. So, you will first have to set the domain to Cosmotown nameservers. Please see instructions on how to do so below:

If you have any trouble with the above, email support@cosmotown.com
Email us from the email address associated with your account
Specify the domain name and where you would like to point your domain to
We can make the appropriate changes on your behalf.

 

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

 

Have a nice day.

Best regards,

Cosmotown Support
