Under:
Adding a custom domain to your blog brings more professionality and increase your rankings in search engines. Adding a custom domain to your blogger blog will change your blog address from yourblog.blogspot.com to yourblog.com, yourblog.tk, yourblog.net or whatever domain extension you registered. Today I am going to share a great tutorial on how you can register free .tk, .ga, .gq, .cf, .ml domains for your blog and use it as a custom domain name in blogger. This will surely build a trust toward your visitors and increase your visitors count too as people prefer to visit a custom domain blog instead of a sub-domain.

  3. Enter the domain name you just registered through Freenom. (along with www) and click Save.
  4. It will show error, Don’t worry it means that your freenom domain does not yet point to any DNS record.
  5. So, Go to your freenom account. On Menu bar “Domains” click on sub-menu “My Domains”
  6. Click on Manage Domains and then Manage Freenom DNS.
  7. Enter the CNAME records as shown by Blogger (in step 4)

  9. Now, move to Blogger account (as you leave in step 4) and click on Save button again. 
  10. It will not show any error now and will get saved.

@NotJohn Sandson
These A-records helps in redirecting naked domain to your www subdomain.

NotJohn Sandson on 24 October, 2017 said...

hi again, of course thanks, that worked even twice already, on different places.
but how do i figure out myself these a-record numbers?
i need to be able to track those digits myself, because if something disrupts the connection, then i am stuck, and it's daunting to even consider this.
so i need your help man, please.

Hammad Ansari on 24 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson
Buddy! These A-records remains same for all blogger custom domain.These all are google's IPs that helps to redirect your non www to www. These are all secured, you can try by visiting them in browser. You will find a google error there.
I hope it helps.
Stay Connected :)

@Hammad Ansari

i'm desperate to know please!

Hammad Ansari on 25 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson
You can easily track them directly from your Domain's DNS records settings from your Domain provider's Dashboard.

NotJohn Sandson on 26 October, 2017 said...

@Hammad Ansari

in this case, domain's provider is freenom?
if so, how do i navigate to the dashboard?

Hammad Ansari on 27 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson

Go to your freenom account. On Menu bar “Domains” click on sub-menu “My Domains”
Click on Manage Domains and then Manage Freenom DNS.

Hope this helps.
