You can use your domain as a custom domain for a blog hosted on Blogger.

Note: You must be the owner of the blog or a blog administrator with permission to manage its settings.

  1. Log into Blogger and open your blog.
  2. In the overview page, click on Settings and then Basic in the left-hand column.
  3. In the Publishing area, click Set up a Google Domains URL for your blog.
    Note: If you do not see the link for Google Domains, you may not be logged into Blogger with the same ID that you use to log in to Google Domains. See Control access to your blog in the Blogger help centre. Make sure that you add the domain owner as an administrator of the blog and log into Blogger with the same ID as the domain owner.
  4. Enter the subdomain that you want to use or leave it blank to keep www.
  5. Select your domain in the list under Google Domains Settings and click Save.

     

Your blog should now display as the home page for your domain. You can also link Blogger sites to specific subdomains of your domain. For instructions on using a subdomain, see How do I use a custom domain name for my blog? in the Blogger help centre.

Note: You can also use the Domain forwarding feature in Google Domains to redirect traffic from your domain to a Blogger site. When users go to your domain they will be redirected to the Blogger site and will see the blogger URL in their browsers. For more information on Domain forwarding see Web forwarding.

Domain Ownership and logging in to Blogger

Integrating your domain with your blog requires you to log in to Google Domains and Blogger with the same ID (email address). If the ID with which you log into Google Domains is different from the one that you use for Blogger, see Control access to your blog in the Blogger help centre. Make sure that you add the domain owner as an administrator of the blog and log into Blogger with the same ID as the domain owner.
