How To Link DomainKing Domain Name To Blogger/Blogspot Blog

Ever since DomainKing launched the cheap .com domain offer in Nigeria, many bloggers in Nigeria have been leveraging on the opportunity to get a custom domain for their blogspot blogs. Unfortunately, many of them don’t know how to use the domain name for their Blogger blogs.

Although, I offer the custom domain service for N3,000, I’ve decided to share the steps involved, for free simply because I’m a nice guy 🙂

I assume you have registered the domain name and it’s already active. If not, read : DomainKing Domain Name Registration Guide for Nigerians to get started.

If registered and active, go to domainKing website and log in.

==> Click on “My Domains

==> Click the small arrow next to the domain name you want to use for your Blogger blog.

==> Scroll down to the Management Tools section and click on the “DKNG DNS & Free Email Panel” button

==> Click “Manage DNS Records”

==> Click “Continue to DNS Panel”

 ==> Click on “A Records” tab > “Add A Record”

==> Leave the “Host Name” field empty

==> Enter in the “Destination IPv4 Address” field

==> Click “Add Record”

==> Repeat same for,, so you have four A Records.

==> Click on “CName Records” tab > “Add CName Record”

==> Enter www in the “Host Name” field

==> Enter “” in the Value field. Ensure you select the second option as seen in the screenshot below:

==> Click “Add Record”

==> Open a new tab in your browser and sign in to

==> Go To “Settings” > “Basic” > “Publishing”

==> Click : + Set up a third-party URL for your blog

==> Enter in the box and save. After clicking save, you will see an error message.

==> Copy the details of the second CNAME quoted in the error message ( Label and Target ) and paste somewhere eg notepad

==> Switch back to the domainking page, click “CName Records” > “Add CName Record”

==> Copy the “Label” and paste in the “Host Name” field

==> Copy the “Target” and paste in the “Value” field (2nd option)

==> Click “Add Record”

After 5 – 10 minutes, go back to your Blogger settings page and try saving it again.

If successful, click “edit” and tick the “redirect” option.

If still displaying the error, you might have to wait a bit more and try again.

That’s all.

I hope it works for you.

Alternatively, you can submit a support ticket and the domainKing support team will be glad to assist you with the configuration.

If you don’t want to go through all these stress, you can just hire me to set up Blogger custom domain for you.

Please, SHARE this with your friends. Do NOT copy and Paste to your blog though :p

  1. You indeed a nice guy (smiles). Greedy people won't want to post this when they know they are making money from it. God bless you boss

  2. Wow I was about preparing screenshots for this as well. But i must say as a tech king you always have a way of making things look special. The guide was properly laid for easy and better understanding.

    Meanwhile, I Actually Run==>

  3. it worked for me but the problem is that the address can only be seen when www is attached to it. if i type or, i will not see my blog until i use please how can i solve this problem. i want my blog to be seen whether prefix is attached to it or not

  4. The process you explained regarding linking of domain name to blogger is surely considerable. I have gone through and it really works. Thanks for illustrating this informative post in such a organized manner along with snapshots.

  5. Hello kindly help please i have set up but following these procedures using my mobile phone but i keep getting "invalid login credentials".

    Please kindly help.

  6. The same thing here – i have set up but following these procedures using my mobile phone but i keep getting "invalid login credentials" – What should i do?

  7. i followed the process but usually get stuck after clicking continue to DNS management.
    it shows me an error message of invalid login credential

  8. I hope it works, each time I connect my blog to a custom domain, it displays only a few hours daily. Most times it is offline (saying it can’t reach the server or time out)… All the hosting companies that know the solution to this problem and it makes me lose traffic.
