How does Blogger.com or blogspot work with .MY Domain Name

We have many fantastic Bloggers in Malaysia. However, we found that many of them are wondering, what is required, and how to link it with a Malaysia domain name such as  .MY or .COM.MY ?

Blogger does support custom domain name, which you can have a personalized, shorter domain name and buy straight inside your blog–> setting –> Custom Domain.

However, due to the good unique name availability in .COM, many good choices already been taken. If you are blogger, many are exploring a country base domain name such as .MY. However, it is not readily available for purchase right inside blogger.com. However getting the domain and connect it to your blog are relatively EASY !

Just some pre-requisite you need to keep in mind.

1) Getting your domain name from any MYNIC authorised reseller

Ensure that they are providing FREE DNS services. Unlike .COM or MY domain name, both required minimum 2 DNS server for registration and many company does not provide a DNS server unless you have an active web hosting account.

In order to connect to your blogger.com account, users are required to add 2 cname entries to the DNS server and it can only does it if you have a DNS service.   Bigdomain.my is one of the company here in Malaysia providing all inclusive setup and DNS services if you want to connect the domain to your blog and the service is FREE with every registration of domain name.

2) Add a cname entry to your domain that point to ”ghs.google.com”

Please note you can only point www. or any pre-fix.yourdomain.com.my to ghs.google.com and you simple cannot have the root domain .  yourname.com.my pointed to google.com.  In most case, the recommended is to point www.yourdomain to ghs.google.com as one of the setting validation in blogger.

After done, you need to point a second set of CNAME entry  such as “asdasdaddsadad”  to googlehosted.com. This entry is for authentication purposes to confirm that you own the domain name. While the unique code can be found when you go to your blog, click setting, and scroll to custom domain below.

3) Set a redirection

Once it’s done , don’t forget to set a re-direction of all traffic to yourdomain.com.my to www.yourdomain.com.my with a wildcard re-direction. Otherwise people tends to use without www and it won’t access any website.
