Namecheap Custom Domain Setup for Blogger

What is Namecheap Custom Domain?

Namecheap.com is a popular web hosting service used by millions of people, specifically, bloggers around the world. It is listed on top 10 best web hosting providers. Many users of Blogger.com use Top Level Domain or Custom Domain to replace their blog address (yourblog.blogspot.com) to make it look more professional and customized. Many of us, bloggers, have difficulty in configuring custom domain in Blogger that's why I created this article to help everyone to easily setup their custom domain.

Domain names serve as unique identifier on the internet that classifies Internet Protocol (IP). For websites they act as an address or a location as well as a tool for naming and branding a company’s internet identity. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS).

The advantage of buying a custom domain with namecheap.com is that they are accepting paypal payment even in the first purchase not like all other brands out there. This is quite convenient to those who are new to buying custom domain or chosen domain. If you already bought a custom domain from Godaddy you may visit my other tutorial about setting up of custom domain for godaddy.com here

2. If you already have domain purchased lets apply it your blog now, login to your Blogger account then go to Settings >> Basic >> Publishing



3. Add your costume domain then Click save then you will get an error and the unique CNAME of your blogs will show as the image shown bellow
