How to Point a Domain to Blogger

tutorial to learn how to domain Blogger
The Blogger  ( old Blogspot ) is a free Google tool for publishing and sharing text, photos and videos on the Internet.
Generally, blogs are hosted by the giant on a blogspot.com subdomain (for example: www.meublog.blogspot.com ). But they can also be hosted as a custom domain (such as www.meublog.com ).
In this tutorial, you will learn how to domain your Blogger . As a reference to the steps below, let's  use the hostingerbrendon.tk domain as an example.

What you will need to know how to put domain on Blogger

Before you know how to domain your Blogger, you will need the following:
  • A Blogger account.
  • A functional domain.
  • Access to a DNS zone publisher (you can contact your hosting provider or domain registrar for more details).

Step 1 - Adding 2 CNAME Records

The first step to knowing how to domain your Blogger is to find the required CNAME records. From here, go to  Settings Basic Publishing Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog .
adding CNAME records to your blog
The domain must be in the format: www.hostingerbrendon.tk .
Then a message with the CNAME records to use will appear.

These records can be added using a DNS zone editor. If you have any questions, contact your hosting provider or domain registrar. In this example, we will use the Hostinger DNS Zone Editor.

After adding the records, save the changes and wait up to 24 until the full DNS propagation. Remember that with this method your blog will be accessible only with www. To be accessible with and without www, check out Step 2.

Step 2 (Optional) - Adding 4 A Records or Redirecting to www

This is an optional step to learn how to domain your Blogger. That said, know that you are not required to execute it. 
An extra step would be to add 4 A records or redirect to www . This way your blog will work with and without www . If you skip this step, your visitors who visit without www may not see your content or see another page (depending on your current A record).
To avoid this situation, A records must be created for the following IPs:
  • 216,239.32.21
  • 216,239.34.21
  • 216,239.36.21
  • 216,239.38.21
See below for an illustration to guide you and add the 4 A records.

But be aware: Domain pointing propagation can also take up to 24 hours. Now both the domain  ww w.hostingerbrendon. tk and hostingerbrendon.tk will work.
You can also create a site redirection without www to the site with www, so A records are not required. This can be done after you save your domain settings and click the Edit button in Blogger Settings .

What differs from one registrar to another is just the registrar's system because the registrations are the same.

Adding Custom Domain on Blogger: 

So keep the instructions, to point your domain to the blogger, I used some images, follow the step by step, to get you the desired result.
Step 1 - First of all, login to Blogger, go to your Blogger dashboard and click on the blog you want to point the domain to, in the left side menu find Settings .

Step - 8 Now with all the records created, go back to Blogger and click save.
This way, your domain will be pointed to Blogger and point to use.
Note: Domain Name System (DNS) records may take up to 48 hours for these updates to propagate.
So when using your own domain with Blogger / Blogspot, you do not need to change the name servers below:
ns19.domaincontrol.com
ns20.domaincontrol.com
From my experience with Godaddy, it usually doesn't take more than 15 minutes, but it's general guidance, don't worry.
Following all these instructions will not fail, if the web address goes down, it is normal after an hour is almost certain to be updated. 

Conclusion

Congratulations! You just learned how to domain your Blogger! But remember: propagation can take up to 24 hours, so have a little patience.
If the blog is still not visible after this time, talk to your hosting provider or domain registrant to make sure the records are entered correctly.
