Automatic DNS Setup Is Now Available, For GoDaddy Purchased Custom Domains

Blogger is now making it easier for people who purchase a domain, hosted by GoDaddy, and need your DNS setup to support custom domain publishing. Just go to the Blogger / GoDaddy "Update your DNS records" wizard, and provide your domain URL.


It's a very painless process.
  1. If you are not logged in to GoDaddy, you login using the right GoDaddy customer account - either one which you currently own, or your new account, setup by "Buy a domain".
  2. You use the Blogger / GoDaddy "Update your DNS records" wizard.
  3. You provide the URL of your domain, to the wizard.
  4. You're done.

If you can't setup your domain, by using "Buy a domain" - or if you need to reset your DNS addresses, for a GoDaddy hosted domain.
  • You already have a GoDaddy hosted domain.
  • Your GoDaddy hosted domain registration just expired.
  • You just transferred your domain to GoDaddy.
  • You purchased your domain using "Buy a domain", and you now need to reset the DNS addresses.
You can now have your domain DNS, automatically setup.

So, we see one more reason to purchase your domain from GoDaddy.

Hi

This question keeps running through my head - all my domains are registered at Godaddy, but not hosted. I'm looking for a new host and easy management of the blogspot to custom domain. Godaddy has terrible reviews as a host. Can I manage the DNS settings at Godaddy and host elsewhere?

Thanks Dan

Dan,

What you do is host the DNS with GoDaddy, and host the content with Blogger / Google. That's called Custom Domain publishing, with a GoDaddy hosted domain.

You can use GoDaddy as a registrar only, if you wish. That's GoDaddy "Bring your own DNS". I won't comment on that.

Why not start a discussion in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, so we can discuss this in detail?
