How do I use my domain with my Blogger account?
In order to set up your domain with your blog, you need to take several simple steps:
1. Set your domain within your Blogger account.
  • Once you login to your Blogger account you need to click on the name of your blog you wish to map a domain to: 
  • Then click on Settings tab and choose Basic:
  • In the Publishing section, click on the link ‘+ Set up a third-party URL for your blog’ to add a custom domain:
  • Type the URL of the domain you’ve purchased, keeping in mind that it must begin with www (or any subdomain) in order to work. Input the domain name and click on Save button:
Note: blogs are not to be placed on bare domains (like yourdomain.tld), so you need to input a subdomain, for example, www.yourdomain.tld or blog.yourdomain.tld.
  • Once the page refreshes, you will see two CNAME records which should be created in your domain’s Host records:
2. Now you may create necessary records for your domain in your Namecheap account.
– Sign in to your Namecheap account (Sign In option is available in the top hat of the page).

– Mouse over Account option in upper right corner of the page and choose Domain List or select Domain List menu in the bar on your left:

– Click on Manage option in front of your domain name:

– Click on Advanced DNS tab and find Host records section > click on Add New Record button

Here you will need to create three records for your domain:

URL Redirect record for yourdomain.tld to forward to www.yourdomain.tld.
Cname record for www.yourdomain.tld mapped to
Cname record with values provided in the Blogger account.

Once all details are inserted, save them using Save changes green icon.

3. Once you’ve done so, please make sure your www. yourdomain .tld is not mapped to their parking page.

You might need to remove parkingpage. namecheap. com record from your domain’s host records to have the correct page displayed after setup:

4. Before you move onto the final step, wait about half an hour for newly host records to take effect. If you attempt the final step before your settings are activated, a warning message will be shown in your Blogger account.

After your settings have been activated, you need to make sure Blogger knows about your custom domain so that Google can direct readers to your blog. Just get back to Blogger account and save the information on your Basic tab:
