Setup custom domain for blogger its very easy, The first step is we will be adding the register domain name to our blog by login to BlogSpot dashboard, and head over to Settings > Basics and see an option which says Publishing >Blog address > + Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog:


Here we need to add the domain name that have purchased, and after adding the domain name, it will give two CNAME records and later on we need to add 4 A records which we will be needing in the next step.

Click on + Setup a 3rd party URL , and add the domain name which we have purchased.
We need to add domain with www as prefix. (See above screenshot)

Once we have added the domain name with www, we will see an error saying “We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain.” and we will given two  CNAME record that we need to configure at our domain. First is www as an alias and the next one is unique code to verify the blog is owned by us, this unique code is different if you login with other user, so pick one. (See below screenshot)

Now. once you have these CNAME details, now’s time to login to our domain control panel, and make changes.

Setting CNAME and A Record for BlogSpot Custom Domain Name

This part has different visual on each domain name service provider, all we need to go is look for DNS Zone Editor which you will find once we logged on to our domain service provider.

We will added first two record that generated for our blog, as illustration see image below
The last step is where we need to add 4 I.P. Address into our A record in our domain. The process is same as above, all you need to do is add A record instead of CNAME. Inside 'Host' field we must type with '@' and in the 'value' or 'pointing to' insert this I.P below one by one save and repeat for remain all I.P 
  • 216.239.32.21
  • 216.239.34.21
  • 216.239.36.21
  • 216.239.38.21
See example Screenshots below
Once we done add all 4 I.P our A-Record will be look like this
This part on our domain control panel is done. Now we must go back to blogger dashboard publishing part to see if error message has been removed, sometimes we must wait from 5 minutes to an hour.

Now's time to test our new blog url with custom domain see if its work. Our url will work with www prefix, if we type our new blog address without www or we say naked it will not work. The solution is to enable non www to be redirected at www like this image
Optional part is Enable HTTPS, by choosing 'yes' at HTTPS Availability.  It will gain secure connection so our user feel more safe at our site. Once we activate this, we must wait two minute or more until message 'HTTPS Availability is being processed. Try again later' disappear. Before we activate enable HTTPS Redirect, we must test it first by typing manually our new custom domain blog address with https:// if thats work we can enable HTTPS Redirect which mean our readers being forced to use https.
