Step 1:  Get your CNAME from Blogger setting

  • Sign in to Blogger.
  • Select the blog you want to update.
  • On the left, click Settings and then Basic.
  • Under “Publishing,” click + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog. Type the URL of the domain you’ve purchased.
  • Click Save.
  • You’ll see an error with two CNAMEs.

Name, Label or Host: Enter the name as the subdomain, like “blog.” or “www.” For destination, enter “ghs.googlehosted.com.” Destination, Target or Points to: This is different for each person and is specific to your blog and your Google Account.

Step 2:  ADD 4 “A” Record into your Domain

  • Now, login to your MDNLimited client area at https://mdnlimited.xyz/clientarea.php Once you logged in, click on Domains -> My Domains
  • After that, click on Manage Domain button against your domain name for which you want to  use with Blogger.
  •  Now Click on “DNS Management” tab  At the bottom of the Domain Manager Page, you will see a section under the heading DNS Management where you can add  “A” record.  Add  IP addresses as below, one-by-one

216.239.32.21
216.239.34.21
216.239.36.21
216.239.38.21

To enter a Host Record, you will need to fill in each of the fields on each row. Which means a complete Host Record will include a Host Name, a Record Type, and Address. And finally “Save Changes.”

For example : Host Name : @ Record Type : A Address : 216.239.32.21

Repeat the same steps and add 3 additional A records pointing to IP addresses 216.239.34.21, 216.239.36.21, and 216.239.38.21

Step 3:  ADD CNAME Record into your Domain

From the same “DNS Management” section “Add CNAME” record :

  • Host Name : www Record Type : CNAME Address : ghs.google.com
  • Click “Save Changes”
  • Now add 2nd CNAME : You will find the record in blogger settings
  • Host Name : xxxxxxxxxxx Record Type : CNAME Address : gv-xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.dv.googlehosted.com
  • Click “Save Changes”

Please be aware that it might take some time for your DNS changes to propagate.  so please wait 0-24 hours and then complete the step 4.

Step 4:  configure your settings with Blogger

Once you’ve put in the “CNAME” and “A” records within your DNS management settings, you will need to go back to the blog Settings window:

  • Sign in to Blogger.
  • Select the blog you want to update.
  • On the left, click Settings and then Basic.
  • Under “Publishing,” click + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog.
  • Type the URL of the domain you’ve purchased.
  • Click Save.
  • You will notice that the error message has gone away. If this is the case then your domain name should be successfully connected to your blog.
