Recently I purchased AggregatedIntelligence.com as the domain name for all my web programming adventures.
The first thing I wanted to do is get my blog address changed to http://blog.AggregatedIntelligence.com. The simplest way to do this is by setting up a redirection of the address to my existing blog address. Even though this works - it will not lead to the address to the posts changing from http://therajahs.blogspot.com/xxx to http://blog.AggregatedIntelligence.com/xxx.
My biggest worry about moving my blog address from http://theRajahs.blogspot.com/ was - whether all the old links via the old address would still continue working. The good news is that Google will keep forwarding the old links to the new address.
So on with the change!
Here are the instructions to using a custom domain registered with GoDaddy.com with your Blogger account.
- Log into your GoDaddy account.
- Go to the manage domains tab.
- Click on the "Total DNS Control and MX Records" link
- Click on the button "Add new CName Record" - which adds an aliased sub dominan address.
- In the next page add the alias name. (As I wanted my blog address to be blog.AggregatedIntelligence.com - the alias name would be just "blog").
Also add "ghs.Google.com" as the "Points to Host Name" value. Finally click OK.
- That is it. Just remember to set the new address in Blogger.
This is done via the Publishing page of customizations page set on blogger.
(Also notice that Google says that it will keep current links working to the old address).
- Finally test the changes.
New address: http://blog.aggregatedIntelligence.com/
Old address: http://theRajahs.blogspot.com/ (should redirect to blog.AggregatedIntelligence.com)
Forwarding of an old address link: http://therajahs.blogspot.com/2007/08/mio-c310x-sec-s3c2410x-test-bd-driver.html (should redirect to http://blog.aggregatedIntelligence.com/2007/08/mio-c310x-sec-s3c2410x-test-bd-driver.html)
