[Part 5] Setting Up Blogger with domain: Ultimate Setup, Resolve with non-www and www versions of your domain name

Part 5 (Final part!):
This article is the 5th part of a 5 part series on Setting up Blogger with a domain: Ultimate Setup
Please read the series from the start as this article alone may not make much sense

In Part 1 you got a free domain
In Part 2 you got a free Hipatic Hosting
In Part 3 you got the A name of your free hosting
In Part 4 you configured

Now we will redirect non-www to www
i.e to
Once redirect is done all that the end user will ever see when he/she enters is and your blog!
Remember your end user will never see the long
The method which we will follow is "Redirect using .htaccess" which is supported with the hosting that we have procured from in Part 2
Open notepad, copy the following into it, REPLACE MYDOMAIN WITH YOUR DOMAIN NAME. Change nothing else

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

Save this file as a.htaccess & select type as "All files"

Now open your favorite ftp client. We used CuteFTP. You can use your favorite ftp. If you are using Firefox you can use Fireftp addon available from Mozilla. or you can download the trial of Cuteftp from their website

Open your ftp client. Create a new FTP site. Enter the details from your mail which you received in Part 2
Note that the username is a series of numbers following 0lx_
The Host address may vary and will be included in the confirmation mail which you received in Part 2
After you have filled in the details, press enter and your client will connect to the ftp server

This is what you should see.
Open (in your case you will see a folder named with the appropriate domain name which you used while setting up your free Hipatic Hosting in Part 2)
In you will see a folder named htdocs open that.

Now browse to the a.htaccess file you had saved earlier on your pc and drag drop the file into your folder

This is what you should see

Now Rename the file
on your ftp site to
as shown


In CuteFTP once you rename the file to .htaccess, the file disappears. Don't panic, if you followed the steps properly, your htaccess file is properly placed on your server
Now all your requests will be redirected to your www version which is pointing to your blog!


How does this setup work?
when someone types in,
1.the request is sent to servers points the DNS of to

3. resolves to its A name

4. A name leads you to your free Hipatic Hosting website, which has a .htaccess redirect to

5. This( is again resolved through servers to and this time sends the user to which finally points to your blog!

CPU Overheating: Symptoms, Causes and Solutions

The most hit pages on this blog are the CPU Temperature Guides, so here is a comprehensive(work in progress) guide to everything(almost) related to CPU Overheating.

Symptoms of a Overheating CPU :

1. Random Crashes:
Your system may switch off or restart automatically while you are using it. And this may happen repeatedly. If the overheating problem is not severe enough, then your PC may only crash when you are running many CPU intensive applications or running a CPU intensive game. If your CPU temperature is very high, then the system may restart as it is booting up ending into a endless and dangerous loop.

2.Sluggish System:
An overheating CPU underperforms, result being a sluggish computing experience. The system may experience random lock-ups too.

Differential Diagnosis:
A PC may also crash due to RAM, Motherboard, Hard Disk & Power Supply Unit issues.

Causes of CPU Overheating:

1. Improper CPU + Heatsink installation:
If your system is new and you have overheating issues, or if you…
