Now Once you have bought the domain name follow the process below
First you need to login to your GoDaddy aaccount
Go to the domains section as shown in the below screenshot
Now click on the “Domain Details” of the domain which you have bought.
Go to the “DNS Zone File” Section and click on “Add Record”
Fill in the details for the CNAME record as shown in the image and click “Add Another”
The details to use are :
Record Type : CNAME
Host : www
Points to : ghs.google.com
TTL : 1 hour
Now we have to create 4 more records in a similar fashion. The details to fill up while creating the records are as below
A @ 188.8.131.52 1 Hour
A @ 184.108.40.206 1 Hour
A @ 220.127.116.11 1 Hour
A @ 18.104.22.168 1 Hour
Once done, you should see only 4 records under the A Host section and those should be:
A record shown under the A Host section with Host value set to @ should be deleted using the Delete icon under Actions(This step is very important)
Now click on “Save Changes
You are now Done with GoDaddy settings.move to your Blogger blog to activate your new domain.
Activating BlogSpot blog to Custom Domain
Login to your Blogger Dashboard
Navigate to Settings
Click on Basic
Then click on the Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog link
Provide your Custom Domain URL and click the Save Button
When you click save, you might get an error like the one shown below
Now Blogger wants us to create another CNAME record on GoDaddy to verify that you are the owner of the domain. The values for Host and Points To should match what’s shown on the Blogger error.
Click Finish and Save Changes once again.
Now go back to Blogger and click on the “Save” button once again. This time the verification error should go away.
Now click on the “Edit” link next to the Blog Address
Now select the redirection Option and save the settings Once again
Now note that the DNS changes which we had made(the A and CNAME records) might take some time to propagate. Just try to give it 24 hrs.
