Step 5
Note: Blogs are not to be placed on bare domains (like yourdomain.tld), so you need to input a subdomain, for example, www.yourdomain.tld or blog.yourdomain.tld.

Step 6
Once the page refreshes, you will see two CNAME records which should be created in your domain’s Host records:

Step 7
Each CNAME is composed of two parts – Name, Label or Host and Destination, Target or Points to.

Step 8
The first CNAME is the same for everyone, Name being “www” and Destination “ghs.google.com.”

Step 9
The second CNAME is particular to your blog and your Google Account, and is therefore different for each person.

Create records for your domain in your Namecheap account.

Step 1
Sign into your Namecheap account (The Sign In option is available in the top hat of the page).

Step 2
Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click on the Manage button next to your domain

Step 3
Click on the Advanced DNS tab and find the Host records section > click on the Add New Record button (not able to edit Host Records?)

– A Records for @ pointing to
216.239.32.21
216.239.34.21
216.239.36.21
216.239.38.21

– CNAME for www mapped to ghs.google.com

– CNAME with values provided in the Blogger account

Step 4
Once all details are inserted, save them using the Save changes green icon.

Step 5
Please make sure that there are no conflicting records set for the same host and remove them, if there are any. The records you need to check may be of URL Redirect (Unmasked/Masked/Permanent Redirect), A or CNAME record types.

Step 6
 Before you move onto the final step, wait about half an hour for newly created host records to take effect. If you attempt the final step before your settings are activated, a warning message will show up in your Blogger account.

Step 7
After your settings have been activated, you need to make sure Blogger knows about your custom domain so that Google can direct readers to your blog.
Just get back to your Blogger account and save the information on your Basic tab

Step 8
Click on the Edit link to make sure that your bare domain redirects to www subdomain and that is all.

That’s it!
