How do I create a CNAME record for my custom Subdomain?

Note: The setup process for newly-purchased domains may take up to 24 hours.

The Quick Answer

  • If you bought your domain name from Blogger, you won't need to create a CNAME record.
  • If your domain is registered with another company, you'll need to follow company-specific instructions.


A CNAME, or Canonical Name, record is an entry within the Domain Name System (DNS) that specifies where a user can find your web pages, or any other URL. You'll use the CNAME to associate your custom domain with your blog.
After registering your domain, decide if you want to use a particular subdomain for your blog. E.g. instead of www.mydomain.com you could use something like blog.mydomain.com, if you want. Then you'll create a corresponding CNAME record for that address, associating it with ghs.google.com. Keep in mind that changes to DNS records make take up to 48 hours to take effect.
Each hosting service has slightly different ways to create CNAME records. Guidelines are provided here for some of the common services. When in doubt, check with the particular company you're using for additional help or instructions.
