Having trouble linking my custom domain to my blogspot account watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, so I just bought a custom domain name from GoDaddy. I have free hosting on blogspot.com

    I have already followed the instruction here (for a top level domain) exactly, but when I go to the actual domain I just get a message saying it doesn't exist. Can someone please help? What am I doing wrong?

    The domain name is www.stylestaples.co.uk

    Hard to say. It's probably a DNS problem. Have you double and triple checked everything? Even followed the GoDaddy specific steps for the CNAME? The custom domain certainly seems to be leading you to Google's domain.

    I would suggest waiting for a day or two. As is often the case with custom domains and DNS, it can take 48-72 hours for the settings to kick in.

    What's the original Blogspot domain?
    Yeah, i've also gone over godaddy's instructions. it's at least no longer saying that the domain doesn't exist. now i'm just getting a google 404 error so I guess it's just waiting for the DNS settings to update.

    I'll try again tomorrow or something.
