In the previous register free CO.CC domain name tutorial, I have briefly explain how to use the function of the domain name setup page. There’s three main option to be choose which is Manage DNS, Zone Records and URL Forwarding. I have already compile along how to use the URL Forwarding in the previous tutorial. So today, I want to make an easy tutorial about How to integrate this free domain name with blogger/blogspot using the Zone Records.
First, you need to have both CO.CC free domain and also a blogspot blog which you can have it for FREE too. You can follow my previous tutorial on how to register CO.CC domain if you still dont know how to do it.
Oke, let start now. First, go to your CO.CC domain name account. Then, go to Domain Settings. Click on one of the domain that you want to setup and click “Set UP“. Then, select the option number 2 which is Zone Records. Fill in the box with all the following value in the picture. Make sure you also include the WWW with it. After that, click setup.
Then, you also should add 3 more time zone to the settings. Why we do this? This is to make sure that your domain also can be access with and without the www infront of it. So, if anyone type yourdomain.co.cc instead of www.yourdomain.co.cc, they will be directed to your www.yourdomain.co.cc.
First, you need to add 3 more Zone Record follow by the following diagram. Make sure the Type is A, not CNAME. We have already setup CNAME before. Also do not include the WWW in the domain host. Just put yourdomain.co.cc. Then, use the following for the Value:
When, you’re done you will have 4 Record Zone in your setting. 3 type A and one type CNAME just like the following diagram.
Now, we have already done setup everything in CO.CC. Lets move to the Blogger to setup the domain and replace your blogspot domain with this free domain name. In your blogger dashboard, click on Settings.
After Setting, click on the Publishing Tab. Then, select Custom Domain and click on Switch to advanced settings. Fill your domain name in the your domain including with WWW in it. Enter the word verification and lastly click Save Settings.
Oupss, before i forgot you need to make sure that you have tick the Redirect yourdomain.co.cc to www.yourdomain.co.cc. This page will be appeared after you have save the settings for the previous step.
Oke, now you’re DONE! The domain name will be completely setup after a few minutes or hour or maybe taking a day or two. Just wait for it. During this period you may see your domain name still be redirect to co.cc main homepage. But don’t worry, it is a normal situation for a domain to update. Just wait for it.
