Recently I’ve been buying domains not for domain parking but to build blogs. This is what I do, I create blogs to meet google adsense and webmaster standard and later give it out for free. But now I think selling them will be a good idea. Who ever buys the blogs can use it to apply for adsense and get approved. I built the blogs on blogger
and redirecting them is what is needed after buying the domains. I’ll like to show you an easy method how I redirected a domain I purchased from godaddy
. The procedure was quite different from previous methods I’ve used. This method seem to be more easier and quicker.
If you wish to know how you can redirect your blogspot the easier way on godaddy, then follow this steps closely;
=> Go to your blogger settings and click on set up a third-party url for your blog.
For this sake of this post I’m using trendymediagist dot com, a domain I bought of recent. Make sure you have already created your blogspot dot com before now.
=> Next is to type the custom domain on the url field as you can see in the screenshot below. Click on save.
=> You will get the message We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 32 as seen in the screenshot below. You don’t need to worry about it.
=> Click on DNS settings file as seen in the screenshot below.
=> You will required to save DNS settings file. Save the file.
=> Go to your godaddy account. Click on the gear icon, a drop down menu will display. Click on Domain details.
=> You will be redirected to a new page as shown in the screenshot below.
=> Click on DNS ZONE FILE tab.
=> Delete the default record set by godaddy. And click save changes.
=> Click on More button as seen in the screenshot below. A drop menu will display. Click on the Import zone file tab.
=> Click on SELECT FILE
=> If you have saved your DNS settings file properly from your blogger settings you should be able to find it in the folder which you did saved it. It will appear like the image below.
=> After uploading the file. The following message will display as shown below.
=> Click on the OK button.You will that you have successfully install everything needed for your domain settings. There is no need to start entering Cname, Host, Label, Destination, Target or Points To
=> Go back to your blogger settings and click on save.
=> Now click on the edit button
=> Tick the box as seen on the screenshot below and save.
Now your blog is a custom domain. You don’t need to wait for hours for the settings to be effected. Just type your url with www or without www prefix and you are good to go.
