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 216.239.32.21 in the “Destination IPv4 Address” field

==> Click “Add Record”

==> Repeat same for 216.239.34.21, 216.239.36.21, 216.239.38.21 so you have four A Records.

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

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

==> Enter “ghs.google.com” 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 www.blogger.com

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

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

==> Enter www.yourdomain.com 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

Cheers!
