Custom Domain Publishing : My Experince

I'm back....Shinade, LJ, Rizal and ImitationAngel thank you very much for the support. I learned great lesson for the past 2 days.

I bought my domain Bonoriau.com from Yahoo last January. Since then I forward Bonoriau.com to my blog. Last to 2 days I decided to switch my blog bonotravel.blogspot.com and publish on custom domain Bonoriau.com.


 I clicked the button confirm and hoping that the process will be automatic but unfortunately is not. It only automatic if we buy the domain from Google Custom Domain such as GoDaddy but not to domain from third party. After few hours I waiting but still no progress so I send email to Help Center.

Sir,


I redirect my bloghttp://bonotravel.blogspot.comto my domain http://bonoriau.com. The domain I bought from Yahoo. I'm really hope that the management will approve the domain and publish my blog as soon as possible. Thank you very much for the assistant.

About 2 hours the Help Center replied my email :

You have to start with the DNS setup.  Here's what you have:
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.192
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.195
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.199
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.200
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.201
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.204
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.205
premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net. 300 IN A       216.39.58.207
www.bonoriau.com.    1200    IN      CNAME   premium12.geo.yahoo9.akadns.net.
Here's what you need:
bonoriau.com.  3600 IN A 64.233.179.121
bonoriau.com.  3600 IN A 66.249.81.121
bonoriau.com.  3600 IN A 72.14.207.121
www.bonoriau.com. 3600 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.

I immediately study the problem I'm facing. I read line by line the facts and explore all the detail from the 2 links given to me. I go back to my domain center and change my DNS setting but still not working.

Later this afternoon I found very important note and immediately I change my blog to previous setting.

Right now, we have no experience with making a Blogger blog, published to the primary domain, work properly when Yahoo DNS is involved. It appears that the best solution, in this case, is to get a third party DNS service that supports "CNAME" referral, and avoid Yahoo DNS altogether.

 Do you learn something from this experince????

    Anyways, congrats on your new domain! :)

  30. Metz not really frighten. I want to do and willing to face the problem...I don't want to face the problem once the blog already BIG...I want to build this blog like a asset...heee

    ReplyDelete
  31. glad you're back! been trying to read your blog only to get the redirecting message.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bono.. because they say WP is better and they have more control over their blogs as in plugins and stuff.. but honestly I still prefer blogger lah :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. wow that's the first I've ever heard about an issue like that.. I agree with LadyJava... when you have your own domain using Wordpress is tons easier (well I'm partial because I use it), and now they have an auto update feature so you never have to worry about manually upgrading your version or compatible plugins ever again. It's now EXTRA user friendly.

    ReplyDelete
  34. since you already have your own domain, why not move to wordpress? I know that you have to start most thing from scratch but it's wort it in the long run... just a suggestion la...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Kristina I always thought that it will be easy...maybe Yahoo is also big provider so they have different system or maybe Google want to promote their domain...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Shaxx I'm thinking to switch to wordpress but I'm really zero about the system

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bono, wordpress is just like blogger but with more user friendly dashboard. you should try wordpress.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Emila actually already have one bonoriau.wordpress but still untouchable

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't encounter problems yet with any domain since I don't buy at Yahoo. Have a nice day Bono.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm sorry Bono, maksudnya beriklan dimana di Harian Riau Pos (korannya) atau di websitenya (riaupos.com)?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Mas Hendra Berapa harganya beriklan di koran dan di website nya.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I immediately study the problem I'm facing. I read line by line the facts and explore all the detail from the 2 links given to me. I go back to my domain center and change my DNS setting but still not working.
