As you’re all know, this blog is no longer using Blogspot domain. It’s directly www.jakuri.com. Sorry, I don’t mean to be narcist, but that’s my own domain *digampar*. Yesterday, one of my friend who want to make her own domain name asked me how to setup from Blogspot to .com using namecheap. She bought a domain from Namecheap. At first, I don’t know how to answer that question because I use free DNS service as my domain redirection between Namecheap and Blogger.
Some people shared their experience about namecheap and blogger custom domain and on this post I just wanna make it more clear by adding a screenshot of setting steps. So, let me summarize it. First, I assume you already have a namecheap account and bought one domain name for only $9. Login to namecheap and you will be directed to your account.
In your control panel, click “manage domains” on the top menu. Then, click your domain name. Next, choose “All host record” menu.
Then, under “IP Address/URL” section, just enter ‘ghs.google.com‘ (without quote) beside the ‘www’ sign, and your domain name in ‘http://www.yourdomainname.com‘ beside the ‘@’ symbol. Save it.
This is not over yet. Go to your Blogger account. From dashboard, click “setting”, after that click “publishing” –> Custom domain, Go to advanced setting. Fill your domain name correctly. Save and you have done well 🙂
Please note, in some case, need at least an hour or even a day to make your DNS setting being recognize and active. Me myself need less than a day to make it active. ARe you ready to make your own domain name for your blog? Yeah, having a blog with custom domain name is more reputed.
