How to add custom domain to Blogger 2021

You wanna learn how to add/setup/use a custom domain to blogger after purchasing it from a third party. It could be from any one of them but the good thing is it’s similar for almost all of them

The thing you need is to get familiar with the Cpanel (control panel). what I mean is that the interface or placement of the buttons are different for every service provider


You can change your blogger domain name under Publishing. The free Blogspot domain in blog address and the third-party in custom domain option

You just need to add or make two CNAME and no need to delete the others on the list

After that, go back to your blogger blog and click on the Save button
