Connect GoDaddy Domain Name To Your Blogger Blog With a 301 Redirection

Setting up a custom domain name is one of the important steps to create a professional Blogspot blog. I purchased a new domain name systosys.com from the domain name registrar GoDaddy and used it to set up a custom domain name for one of my existing Blogpost blogs.

This tutorial explains how to create a custom domain name for your Blogger blog with a domain name purchased from GoDaddy.

The step by step instructions provided below explains how I redirected my existing Blogger blog (systosys.blogspot.com) to www.systosys.com with a perfect 301 redirection.
  1. Login to your Blogspot account and click on the Settings from the left side menu.

  2. Under the basics, click on the Edit link near the Publishing and type the domain name you have bought from Godaddy.


  3. In the latest template, you need to click on the link Set up a third-party URL for your blog to start pointing a GoDaddy domain to your Blogger blog.

    Click on the Save button.

  4. You will get an error message to show the connection verification error with Godaddy domain name.



    To fix the Godaddy domain verification error with your Blogspot blog, you need to enter the CNAME details under the DNS settings in the Godaddy account.

    You need to use the CNAME information provided by Blogger under the error message.

  5. Log into your GoDaddy account. https://godaddy.com

  6. Click on the Domains from the top menu.

  7. Click on the three dots near your domain name to open the Manage DNS link.

  8. Click on the Manage DNS link.

  9. Under the GoDaddy DNS Management page, you can change the default CNAME details with your Blogger CNAME.

  10. Click on the Edit symbol to delete default Godaddy CNAME and fill Blogger CNAME instead.

    You need to fill the Host and the Point To fields before completing the custom domain name configuration in the Blogger account.

  11. To enable the direction from the non-www version of the domain name to the www version, you need to point the Blogger IP addresses at the @ field.

    • Click on the Add button and select type A

    • Add the following IP addresses at the @ filed by making four @ fields

      1. 216.239.32.21

      2. 216.239.34.21

      3. 216.239.36.21

      4. 216.239.38.21





  12. Click on the Save button to complete the domain name setup process at GoDaddy side.

  13. Come back to the Blogger account and click on the edit button at the basic settings page near the third party domain settings.

  14. Check the checkbox at redirect systosys.com to www.systosys.com and click the save button.

You need to wait for a few minutes to see the perfect redirection. Within two minutes, my blog, https://systosys.blogspot.com redirected to https://systosys.com.

If you check the redirection of https://www.systosys.blogspot.com to https://www.systosys.com, you can see it as a permanent redirection.

Permanent redirection ( 301-redirection) is very important in a webmaster's point of view, and I will cover that topic in my future posts.

How to Fix Destination Host Unreachable Error?

Do you know the most difficult part of the job of a network engineer? You are responsible for every issue related to networking in your company. Even though everything works fine, someone will come up with a complaint, and it is on our head to fix it.

While I was working as a network engineer trainee, I received a call from the development section. Manager on Duty in the development section was angry and said that the network was not working.

When I asked him about the issue, he said the Internet is just fine, but one of his teammates received an error while pinging to a device in his subnet.

His teammate received the Destination Host Unreachable reply while he tried to ping to another computer in his section.

Manager on Duty demanded an explanation for the Destination Host Unreachable. I explained to him the reasons to receive Destination Host Unreachable error message with examples. If you have not seen this error message before, have a look at the screenshot attached below.
