Custom domain setup on blogger for godaddy domain



custom domain name for blogger
Introduction

Custom domain setup in Blogger.com is used to create your own blog URL. (for example: from myblog.blogspot.com to myblog.com).

When you purchase a domain from Godaddy.com, they assign an IP address (A record and CNAME record) for the domain. Hence, you need to change those records to point to your Blogger.com blog. This post can help you to change the A and CNAME records of your Godaddy account.

Follow the steps given below:

Step 1: Go to Godaddy.com

Step 2: Buy a domain name from godaddy.com. Domain name is not free its cost around $10 to $12. And it is not necessary to buy hosting or website builder package from Godaddy.com to add custom domain on blogger. Just purchase domain name only.

Step 3: Click on domains menu and its sub menu All Domains. After that select your domain.

  5. What many surveys and polls are starting to show is that some of the businesses that have 10 or fewer employees are going to look seriously at their option to drop health insurance coverage altogether, and no longer have it as an expense of the company. Instead, they will have their employees get health insurance through the health insurance exchanges.phentermine 37.5 adipex
