Thursday, September 21, 2017

Q: I have a website which is hosted at blogger ( blogspot.com ) and I am using a third party domain name. Once I set the third party domain address, i can access the website with "www" version of website address ( ex: www.MyWebsite.Com ) , but when I try to access the website without "www" (ex: MyWebsite.Com), nothing loads. How to fix this?

A: Here the website contents are hosted on google server for blogger.com( blogspot.com). Your third party url acts as a vanity url for your websites blogspot address ( ex: http://MyWebsite.blogspot.com ). To set thrid party domain name to your blogger website, you have do following steps:


How to Add a third party domain name to your blog / website hosted on blogger ( blogspot)?

  2. Go to Settings > Basic and click on the Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog link
  3. Enter the Custom Domain URL and click the Save Button.
  4. You may see an error message and texts similar to the one given below:
