Which steps to take exactly to redirect blogspot to custom domain name?
Thanks for sharing your problem today - and welcome to the Blogger Support forums.
Please share both the BlogSpot and domain URLs, so we can help you better. Let's try to diagnose the problem. It's easier to diagnose a problem, with the blog carefully identified.
Please examine the Publishing wizard, on the Blogger dashboard Settings - Basic page.
Both a screen print, and a text copy, of the Publishing wizard “Blog Address” box can be very useful, in preventing unnecessary confusion. Please, don't show personal details, such as account name or email address.
Here's what I see, for my custom domain published blog:
Both URLs, provided as text, are very useful when diagnosing problems like yours.
What do you see, for your blog?
I’ll wait for your answer!
Here's what I see for my custom domain published blog:
You'll need to correct your DNS addresses. Forwarding does not work properly, with Blogger. You need to use "A” / “CNAME" referral.
You'll get more done, if you learn to read a Dig log.
You have (right now, you should see these addresses, in a Dig):
meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN A 18.104.22.168
www.meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN CNAME meditatievedans.nl.
You need (when finished, you should see these addresses, in a Dig):
meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN A 22.214.171.124
meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN A 126.96.36.199
meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN A 188.8.131.52
meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN A 184.108.40.206
www.meditatievedans.nl. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
Add the addresses highlighted in green.
Remove the addresses highlighted in red.
Read, for details:
A Dig log is much easier to read, than the different dashboards (of unpredictable format), provided by each different registrar.
After you correct the addresses, be patient and wait until they are effective worldwide. Don’t make changes, and test immediately - then conclude that the instructions didn't work.
There may be other DNS addresses, not specified here, which you should not change. If you have questions or uncertainty about any other addresses referenced in the zone editor, please make a screen print and post in your reply.
I hope that this helps you understand your problem! Please, let me know if you have more questions!
