Setup Custom Domain Name on Blogger

I wanted to change my blog to my own domain since long time ago. But I was busy and I did not post anything new for many years anyway and it was not necessary. Since I have to stay at home for at least one and half month and nothing much to do, I decided to do it. Unfortunately, the domain name I wanted was already taken. My requirements were very simple 'must be cheap', 'should not be too mainstream like .com/net/info' and name should be something I like. Luckily, I found something I like at cheap price. I tried to register at GoDaddy but it took some time to finish it. Payment is always an issue in Myanmar. After a few failed attempts to pay with paypal, I changed the payment method and managed to pay with the card issued in Singapore. Then I configured to redirect to my original blog www.naychizaw.blogspot.com and set up the url in Blogger and Godaddy settings. I followed the steps in this blog. It's very old blog post and GoDaddy UI is quite different. The new UI is simpler and can be done in one page. I modified two CNAME value in this setting instead of following steps in "Setting up CNAME and A Record for BlogSpot Custom-Domain Name".

Finally, my new domain is ready to use. ;)
