Setting up Blogger with a .co.cc domain. Get a short & COMPLETELY FREE DOMAIN!
Note: What follows is probably the most simplest of ways to use co.cc and blogger together. However, this method has its drawbacks. For a advanced method of Setting up Blogger with Co.cc Read our 5 part Series on the Ultimate Setup!
I had already used hiptic.co.nr and other url forwarding domains(like .tk )
The problem with them was that Google did not index my new flashy short domain. I had to setup hipatic.blogspot.com with Google Analytics & Webmaster. In addition to that visibilty factor was extremely low. You type in hipatic.tk and press enter and whoosh! you have hipatic.blogpot.com in the address bar. So the next time the user hardly remembers your short name & has to forget your long name too.
Hope google and you guys like my new name!
If you want to get a free domain name too, get one here . It's COMPLETELY FREE!
How to: Step 1:
Visit http://www.co.cc, and sign up for a free .co.cc domain with FREE DNS, MX AND CNAME
(Now that means all the power you need from a domain name!) Even paid domain registrars sometimes don't offer complete access to DNS, MX & CNAME, like .co.cc does.
It is like a functional TLD!
Set the CNAME of your domain to ghs.google.com
Wait for 1-2 days. Now go to your Blogger Blog dashboard.
Select Custom Domain
Select Advanced Settings
Type in the name of your domain, eg www.hipatic.co.cc
Type in the Captcha & Press Enter !
You are done
You can Select the Redirect option, enter Captcha and press enter if you wish to!
