by: RJDREYES

(Note : By doing this, I expected you have an internet connection and your own blogger account)

REQUIREMENTS:
You can use custom domain name aside from Blogger Account offer to you. If you would like to use other than yourdomain.blogspot.com, such as top level domain name (e.g. yourdomain.com) or other domain names, then this guide might help you to achieve it.

* There are domain registrar companies offer custom domain name, but of course, you need to pay for its services. Usually around $12 or 500 pesos for the custom domain name for 1 year contract. Go ask first about the services they cater on their domain name, they must allow you to setup some settings like DNS, CNAME, and A records.

If you already purchase your own custom domain name, it’s time to use it.

1. Login to your Blogger Account, to your Dashboard, and then click Settings drop down menu, then click Basic. You will see the Blog Address on the Publishing Section, from there you have an option to Add a custom domain name.

5. After you successfully add the generated CNAMEs, head back to your Blogger account and try to save your custom domain name. If you still encounter an error, try to wait for at least 24 hours from the time you setup / change your settings.

6. If you already succeed to used the custom domain name, check/enable redirect yourdomain.com to www.yourdomain.com. In this way, if someone tries to visit your website without (www), it will resolve and redirect to your www.yourdomain.com.
