How to Setup Custom 1AND1.com Domain in Blogger
Crazy, isn’t? I think so.
When I promised you will start a blog with only $1.17, and you’ve probably pay cafe charges out of the budget.
Hey Friday, jokes out!
You may have heard of 000webhost free web hosting plan and, perhaps, you are already cooking the idea of linking your domain to their server. But I am sorry you are cooking up your web death.
Don’t feel puzzled. I did the same when I first heard of it in a cheat sheet.
I used it for the past few weeks but the limitation I faced were worse more than blogging on the Blogger platform. Hence, I restore my verdict for blogger.
If you are ready to venture into blogger, let do it quick.
Create A Blogger Blog
If you already own a Google Mail account, kindly log in with your Firefox or Chrome.
Next, pick on your address box and shot the address www.blogger.com and you are a step to create your sub-domain blog. You will see a page like this.
- Next, click on the “continue to blogger” box to get on.
- Click on New Blog
A new page comes up, filled up with so complicated wordings. Relax and do this:
- Once you clicked on the New Blog a short form pops up:
- Fill the Title Column for your blog
- Pick any Web address
- Then click on the Create Blog
This new page will forever be your Control Panel unless Blogger decided otherwise tomorrow. However, for now on, it will be the board where all other further tweaks will take place.
Now let move on
- Click on Add a Custom Domain Name (see in the image below)
- Out of the list options Click on the Settings Publishing > Blog Address
This is where many got it all wrong.
What blogger want use to do is simple. Those two listed under “Name, Label or Host” becomes a Subdomains in your 1and1 Domain Control panel.
While the two addresses on the right become their different ‘alias’
Let Do The Tweak at Your 1and1 Control Panel
- Visit 1and1 login page
- Fill in your details (as shown in the image below)
Are You logged in?
Now let add the “Alias” to Complete the process
- Go back to Domain Center
- Click on Manage Domain
- Then Click on the “more” on any of the subdomain
- The list becomes longer
- Click on the “edit DNS setting”
- If the subdomain you opened is “WWW”
- Change the s
- Fill it with the “ghs.google.com” as the alias
