Another blog is already hosted at this address.during the custom domain setup process.
Initially, the problem was reset by Blogger Support, when requested by a form entry submitted by the blog owner. Later, we developed a blogger accessible reset procedure using Pages, a service controlled within Google Apps. It appears now that the latter solution is no longer usable.
Custom Domains generated recently from the "Buy A Domain For Your Blog" wizard continue to have access to Google Apps, but the Pages app is no longer available. The alternative apps, Start Page and Sites, may or may not have the same effect as Pages, when used in a reset process for the mentioned symptom.
Some people have stated that they got acceptable results from simply enabling Sites, and setting Sites to a non defined virtual host, ie "nosites.mydomain.com".
If your blog is showing "Another blog is already hosted at this address", and the above possibilities do not work, you will probably have to repeat my experience.
- Add an entry in the Custom Domain Reset Form.
- Wait until notified, or check the blog periodically for a change in status.
- Republish your blog back to BlogSpot, then repeat the custom domain setup.
- Good luck with the repeated CAPTCHAs.
Yesterday, I purchased my test domain "nitecruzr-test.net", and started setting it up. After I selected "Redirect nitecruzr-test.net to www.nitecruzr-test.net.", and managed to endure yet another never ending CAPTCHA sequence, I became yet another victim of the above error.
My test domain was reset by Blogger Support, and after republishing it back to BlogSpot then repeated to the custom domain, and with yet another CAPTCHA session of frustration, it is now online. I sympathise with all of you other bloggers whose newly purchased custom domains suffer the same ignominy.
