Create a Blog with a Subdomain of my own Domain
By Martin Stut, 2009-01-24
All of this is already written in the online help of blogger.com, but I found it noteworthy how easy this is:
- Log in to www.blogger.com and create a blog. For the time being assign it a-temporary-name.blogger.com.
- Arrange a CNAME record for the (sub)domain of your future blog to point to ghs.google.com. I did that through the administration interface of my shared hosting account with Hetzner, so now orgblog.stut.de is a CNAME to ghs.google.com.
Because it was a new (sub-)domain of an existing domain, as opposed a new or changed domain, the entry spread across the Internet within less than a minute.
- Enter your domain in the 'Custom Domain' option on the Settings | Publishing tab.
That's it. You can now look at my new brainchild using a stut.de address.
