Sub Domain Happiness

So I'm really happy about having this blog now be a subdomain of peterfoxflick and no longer a subdomain of blogger. This quick tutorial is assuming that you already have a domain purchased from a provider. (I recommend Hover). All you have to do is go to Settings in blogger. From here you should see Publishing and Blog Address. Click on  "+ Setup a 3rd party URL for your blog" and go ahead and enter in your new domain (subdomain.maindomain.com example make.peterfoxflick.com) and click save. Blogger will now give you two names and destinations that you need to add to your domain. Now all you need to do is add these to you domain name provider. Go to your domain name provider and navigated to edit your domain. Then you want to select DNS and add the two new names and destinations as CNAMEs. All you have to do is save in hover and then go back to blogger and click save again. This time it shouldn't give you an error code.

Bonus: How to set up Two Blogger Subdomain Names


If you try to set up two blogger subdomain names you might run into the same problem I did. Blogger will not give you the first error code with the two names and destinations that you need to add. Simple solution, enter a main-domain of a website you don't own (subdomain.gibberish.com example make.alskdjfl.com). Gibberish is amazing. Now you can proceed as before but remember to change the main-domain back to the domain you want in blogger before you click save (the second time).
