Updated: Setting Up Netfirms' Domain Name with Blogger's Custom Domain

Saturday, July 16, 2011 by Admin · 14 comments

Netfirms upgraded its hosting platform rendering my old How-to obsolete. So here is my updated how-to on setting up Netfirms' domain name with Blogger's custom domain.

1. Login to your Control Panel

2. Go to Domains > Domain Central
3. To configure your domain name click on the “+” button next to the domain you wish to use

4. To enter your CNAME Alias and A Record click on the DNS 

5. From the drop down menu select "CNAME Alias"

6. Enter  www as your Host Name and  ghs.google.com as your "Points To:"

7. Select "A Record" from the drop down menu

8. Add the following IP addresses

9. Click on Subdomains  

10. add WWW as your subdomain

And that's it. Like always it  usually takes up to 24 to 72 hours for the domain name to propagate. 

As always have a nice day.

You are awesome. Google and Blogger instructions were not much help so I'm glad I found you. Other forums made it so complicated but your screenshots and step by step instructions were great help. Google/Blogger should hire you to write their help guides. THANK YOU!!!

Wow, I feel so stupid. I followed this great tutorial, but had the same problem as Dolev Bar.

I just noticed the little box in Blogger's advanced redirect settings that says "Redirect cooksandqueens.com to www.cooksandqueens.com." It was unchecked! Gah.....
