6.) After clicking save you may be directed to confirm your site authorization by adding a host file to your DNS records. At this point, you'll need to login to your DNS host and create a new host file to link the accounts. Methods for this step vary according to hosting company, so, your best bet is to check for tutorials on your hosting company's website.

7.) Once your site ownership is verified, Blogger will automatically redirect users to your new domain.
