  1. Hello. I have set up my Blogger blog on a subdomain. The subdomain works correclty (blog.xyz.com), and Blogger correctly redirects the naked domain (xyz.com) to the subdomain as I have selected to do in Blogger.

    The problem I am having is the issue of redirecting the www domain (www.xyz.com) to the subdomain. Having a www Cname as “@” gives a Google error. I tried deleting the www CNAME and setting subdomain forwarding to forward www to blog.xyz.com, but this did not work either (not found error from ISP). Is there a way to do this you are aware of?

    1. I found a solution to this. Although my domain host (GoDaddy) allowed me to add www as a subdomain to forward from, www would not show up in my DNS zone file, in contrast to other subdomains I tested.

      So I tried deleting the “@” host pointing to Google’s IP addresses, (re)adding a www Cname pointing to “@”, and setting up “domain forwarding” to blog.xyz.com. This worked. I also unselected “Redirect xyz.com to blog.xyz.com” in Blogger but this may not have been necessary.

  2. Hi Umesh, thank you for posting this helpful article. In my case, I have two Blogger accounts and therefore, two subdomains with Blogger – blog. and index. (my root domain is hosted on Shopify). I tried your steps, and the first subdomain worked. But when I tried the second, Blogger gave me the same “Name, Label, or Host field” (so using your example, Blogger gave me the code – “lkhdkqye5haw” for both subdomains). When I tried to enter the same code again in my domain settings, it wouldn’t allow me to save since it was a duplicated line. Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks!

    1. Hi mark, it is going to work for only one blog only, Friendly speaking i don’t know how to do that but it is posible to pin more than one blog on blogger. I will post regarding it when i come to know about it. Thanks for comment here stay tuned.

  3. hi, i am srinivas…I used my subdomain for FreeServers and hosted Wp On it. It was deleted due to high cpu limit. from then, it shows 403 forbidden error. Now, i added the domain to my blogger, added and verified and saved it, Still it shows 403 forbidden error.pls help.
    here is the domain :

    1. you need to find it from your custom domain provider, e.g. Godaddy, if you purchased custom domain from it than you have to login in godaddy website their you will find DNS manager.

  4. Hi,I created sub domain as blog.mydmain.com successfully in coanel.But when i try to enter the cname record as blog.mydomain.com and cname as ghs.google.com,it dud not allow me.I got the error saying A record already exist.Even though when I select Cname while adding still i get the same error.The other entry I could enter.Please help.

    1. Hi druk,
      See you can not create the same sub-domain which is already exist.
      First of all you have to delete existing sub domain and than try to add both records.
      If you didn’t solve this than connect with me on facebook i will try to solve your problem 🙂

  5. please make a tutorial about how to create a sub domain in bigrock and park a sub domain in 000webhost

    so how can i redirect “tutorials.tk” into “demo.tutorials.com”

    it would be really helpful for newbie like me .. : )

    1. Hi jayesh,

      Glad to see you here on this blog. recently i had published the tutorial for the same, you can refer it. As far as redirect concern you can set it by your cpannel. another alternatives is you can use hearder redirect also in-case you won’t find any provisions in your cpannel

  6. Ok, I did all of these steps before seeking help to my problem. Following your tips the result is this:
    when I type in my subdomain healthybeauty.ursualexandra.com appears a notification from blogger to redirect the user but says that the blog isnt hosted by blogger but I dont understand why , because if I take out the redirect from blogger it works. i mean if I type my sub domain it will redirect to my blog, but the adress on the top is from the blog, not the subdomain. Ahh, I dont think I make any sense, but I will leave it with the error so if you check, you can see.

    Subdomain – healthybeauty.ursualexandra.com
    Blog – bornedbeauty.blogspot.com (I dont even like the name, I needed something to work so I could redirect the subdomain, hoping this will never see the light of day :)) )
    Sorry if you didnt understand my message but there s really no better way to explain it. i m not that good at it stuff, although when I did this to my domain it totally worked. i dont know where the problem is. And yes, it has been 3 days since I made the changes so it can t be the fact that I have to wait up to 48 hours. Thank you in advance.

    Please help. 😀
