Step 6: Login to your using your Gmail account and click your blogger name to map custom domain.

Step 7: Click ‘Settings’ from the left side and then click ‘Basic’, now under publishing section, select add a custom domain and enter your domain name and hit save.

Step 8: Now, you’ll see an error something like this, “ We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12” its because Google added one extra security level and we need to verify the ownership of the domain. So, for the same, we have to add two extra Cname record in Bigrock > DNS Management > DNS > Cname Record. 

So, from these two Cname record you’ll be shown, the first field of the Cname record will be entered in Bigrock hostname and the second value of the Cname will be entered in ‘Bigrock Destination Address’,  as we mentioned before don’t make any changes in TTL and hit Add record.


You’re done! Wait for some hours for propagation. And once the propagation completed you can choose your custom domain by going to Blogger settings > Basic> Blog Address>Edit.
If you wants to redirect your non-www version domain to www version , then click the check box for redirection and hit save.

    • Govind Choudhary says:

      Hey buddy,The Cname Record without WWW mean,that your blog should open when user doesn’t enter www before the domain.You can forward your domain to non www version in domain forwarding option.That also will work here.After the changes made wait for 24 hours to activate it.
