Connecting Your HosterPK Domain to Blogger

Blogger is a popular blogging platform owned by Google that allows users to create and publish blogs for free. While Blogger provides free subdomains (.blogspot.com), many users prefer to use a custom domain for their blog. If you have a domain registered with HosterPK and want to connect it to your Blogger blog, this step-by-step guide will walk you through the process.

Step 1: Signing in to Your HosterPK Account

The first step in connecting your HosterPK domain to Blogger is to log in to your HosterPK account. Once you have logged in, navigate to the "Domains" section of your account dashboard. Here, you will see a list of all the domains you have registered with HosterPK. Select the domain you want to use for your Blogger blog. Next, you need to update your domain's DNS settings. To do this, click on the "DNS Settings" tab. Here, you will see a list of DNS records associated with your domain. You will need to add and edit some of these records to connect your domain to your Blogger blog. But before making any changes, it's important to understand what each type of DNS record does.

Step 2: Updating Your HosterPK DNS Settings

In this step, you will update your HosterPK DNS settings to connect your domain to your Blogger blog. First, you need to add a CNAME record for your domain. To do this, click on the "Add Record" button and select "CNAME" from the drop-down menu. Enter the following values:
  • Hostname: www
  • Value: ghs.google.com
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate (this may take up to 24 hours). Once the CNAME record has propagated, you can move on to the next step.

Step 3: Creating a New Blog in Blogger

To create a new blog in Blogger, sign in to your Google account and navigate to the Blogger homepage. Click on the "Create Your Blog" button and follow the prompts to set up your new blog. You will need to choose a title and URL for your blog, as well as select a template. Once you have created your blog, you can move on to the next step.

Step 4: Setting up Custom Domain in Blogger

In this step, you will set up your custom domain in Blogger. Navigate to the "Settings" section of your Blogger dashboard and click on the "Basic" tab. Under "Publishing," click on the "Set up a third-party URL for your blog" link. Enter your custom domain name (without the www) and click "Save."

Step 5: Verifying Your HosterPK Domain Ownership

To verify that you own your HosterPK domain, you will need to add some verification records to your DNS settings. Return to your HosterPK account dashboard and click on the "DNS Settings" tab. Click on the "Add Record" button and select "TXT" from the drop-down menu. Enter the following values:
  • Hostname: @
  • Value: google-site-verification=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (replace "x" with your unique verification code)
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate (this may take up to 24 hours).

Step 6: Adding CNAME Records in HosterPK

In this step, you will add two CNAME records to your HosterPK DNS settings. Click on the "Add Record" button and select "CNAME" from the drop-down menu. Enter the following values for the first record:
  • Hostname: @
  • Value: ghs.google.com
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate. Then add a second CNAME record with the following values:
  • Hostname: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (replace "x" with your unique verification code)
  • Value: gv-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.dv.googlehosted.com (replace "x" with your unique verification code)
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate.

Step 7: Adding A Records in HosterPK

In this step, you will add two A records to your HosterPK DNS settings. Click on the "Add Record" button and select "A" from the drop-down menu. Enter the following values for the first record:
  • Hostname: @
  • Value: 216.239.32.21
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate. Then add a second A record with the following values:
  • Hostname: @
  • Value: 216.239.34.21
  • TTL: 1800
Save the record and wait for it to propagate.

Step 8: Configuring Domain Redirection in HosterPK

To ensure that visitors are automatically redirected from your domain to your Blogger blog, you need to set up domain redirection in HosterPK. Click on the "Redirection" tab in your HosterPK account dashboard. Enter your custom domain name (with the www) in the "From" field, and your Blogger blog URL (with the www) in the "To" field. Select "301 Permanent Redirect" as the type of redirection and click "Save."

Step 9: Verifying Your Domain in Blogger

Return to your Blogger dashboard and click on the "Save" button next to your custom domain name. If everything is set up correctly, Blogger will verify your domain and display a message indicating that it has been successfully connected.

Step 10: Updating Your Blogger Settings

In this final step, you need to update your Blogger settings to ensure that your custom domain is used for all future blog posts. Navigate to the "Settings" section of your Blogger dashboard and click on the "Basic" tab. Under "Publishing," select your custom domain name from the drop-down menu. Click "Save" to update your settings. Your HosterPK Domain is Now Connected to Blogger Congratulations! You have successfully connected your HosterPK domain to your Blogger blog.
