Blogger – Publishing on a Custom Domain Name – Setting Up a CName with Moniker - Instructions



People who use the Blogger platform often wonder how do they get a custom domain instead of a johndoe.blogspot.com sub-domain address. I swear this issue messed with me for months, but that’s my fault.

I should have been more proactive in my efforts to find a solution. Well, it’s time to help those who would like to see their custom domain at the top instead of a sub-domain. I use Moniker as my registrar of choice.

I’ve been using them for about a year and a half with no problems. Their customer service can be a little shaky at times, but they are still pretty good. Blogger gives instructions on how to set up a custom domain, but it’s really not too clear when Moniker is the registrar.

If you follow these instructions you will be fine and have a nice custom domain for your blog. Once you learn this, you’ll be setting up hella blogs….it’s that easy!!! This is strictly for setting up a cname (alias) with Moniker.

Thanks to, David Fede, Client Services Manager, for the very helpful information!!!!
