eNom Hosted Custom Domains Suddenly Redirecting To A Parked Server

In possibly yet another episode of the mysteriously broken custom domains that were purchased through Blogger, we have today reports of custom domains which are mysteriously redirected to advertisements for real estate and apartment rentals.

When we look at the DNS addresses, we see parked domains.

mydomain.com. 1800 IN A 69.64.147.214
www.mydomain.com. 1800 IN A 69.64.147.214

69.64.147.214
69.64.144.0 - 69.64.159.255
eNom, Incorporated


In one case, the domain apparently expired yesterday, and the owner didn't get a renewal notice.
I thought they would charge me automatically for annual renewal ... so perhaps my domain name is in limbo because it didn't get renewed??

So, then, what is the smoothest way to put a blog on a custom domain?

You put a blog on a custom domain using The "Buy A Domain" wizard.

Regardless of what you may think from reading posts in Blogger Help, custom domains are not inherently unstable. On any given day, besides a dozen or so bloggers making problem reports, thousands of others are busy posting to their blogs. Those posting don't post in Blogger Help, of course.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
