1. With the WWW prefix

  • With Prefix \”www\”

2. Next we have add another record without the www prefix
Again click on Add CNAME record.

  • Without Prefix \”www\”Host Name:
  • Value: ghs.google.com
  • Add record

 

 

 

 

 

After Completing CNAME records, Create A Records.

Now create ‘A’NAME records

 

Now create four ‘A’NAME records with the following ip address

  • 216.239.32.21
  • 216.239.34.21
  • 216.239.36.21

In destination IPV4 address put this value “216.239.32.21” (without quotes)

  3. I also want to ask that after switching to custom domain do I have to submit my blog and sitemap to Google webmaster tools again?

    • Hello Faizan ahmed,
      google spider crawl’s your site automaticaly. Its not necessary to submit your blog on search engine. But if you do submit on search engine again. Google will crawle your site sooner then automatic crawles. By the way, as long as you are using google blogger. You don’t need to do that… Keep blogging. Have a nice day :)

  4. Thanks for the instructions. Well said :).
    In the “Should Add 4 more A Records”, in the image IP address is put in the HOST field. Is that should be ‘Destination IP field’. Not a big error, might help someone i guess …

  6. What should i fill in ipv4 ?

    Post a Reply
    • Hi,

      That’s not correct. You have to fill IPv4 address as one of the google IP’s and Hostname has to be kept blank.
      I got this information from BigRock support.
      Please see the post here
