Settings for "CNAME Record"

1. Log in to your hosting account with your User ID/ Email and password.

2. Find DNS (Domain Name System) management settings page. This page can be located at your hosting dashboard, tab or dropdown menu. Just find it anyway.

3. Inside your DNS managent page you will find two records name. These are CNAME Records and A-Records. CNAME records connects your blog with your own purchased custom domain name.

4. Click Advance Settings or Manual Settings if you see any link like these.

5. Click CNAME Records or Add CNAME Records. Inside your CNAME Records window type "www" in "Name" box. Then enter ghs.google.com where it asks for "Host Name"

Custom Domain CNAME Record Example

Settings for "A Record"

This setting will help you to find your blog when some one type your blog address without "www" Example: shinemat.com. This is called naked domain. This setting will redirect your blog from naked domain to your full domain.
Example: (shinemat.com) » » » (www.shinemat.com)

From my personal experience I can say many visitor don’t type "www" before your web URL(s). So if you don’t set your A-Records for your custom domain you will lose huge amount of traffic because they will see an error notification page. So it’s very important, and don't forget to create A-Records. You need to create 4 A-Records only.

1. Similarly before, find A Records under DNS management page.

2. Inside A Records window type your custom domain name without "www"

3. In "A" section enter the following IP addresses. Remember, 1 IP for 1 A Record. That means 4 A-Records.

216.239.32.21

216.239.34.21

216.239.36.21

216.239.38.21

4. After creating four A-Records you are finished second part.
