Create Email Addresses Connected To Your Blogger Custom Domain Plus Access DNS Settings And More




| | 15 comments

This week we looked at using custom domains on Blogger Blogs, why you should get a custom domain and the steps to buy and connect a custom domain on Blogger.Those posts have been popular and I'm delighted to see many of you have took my advice and bought domains for your blog getting rid of the ugly blogspot.In those posts i mentioned Google Apps and how when you buy a domain through Blogger you get a free Google apps account.Google apps actually offer some great features that are all available to you once you buy your domain.Two of the main features of Google apps are the option to create Email addresses associated with the domain you bought.So you can create for example yourname @yourblog.com or info @yourblog.com and so on.Another feature of Google apps is the option to access your DNS or Domain Settings.So you can log into your domain host account and access things like Cname records.

In this video post i do my best to explain the whole process from accessing your Google apps account to creating multiple Emails connected to your domain, enjoy !

Google Apps Video Tutorial




That's it for this Blogger Tip, have to admit it was hard to explain so the video went a bit long (As did the title of the post :p).Luckily YouTube did take the full video so hopefully you have learned just some of the Google Apps features available to you.

Remember Google apps offer many many more features and we only touched on the basics, you should take 30 minutes when you get the chance to look through all it offers.The Google Apps Support center is a great place to start.

  2. Paul - I bought my domain name for my blog (per your advice). Is there a way to forward the email from my domain name email address to my regular email? I tried using the forwarding settings, but can't get it to work. Thanks for the great tips!

  3. Creating an email according to your domain name is really cool. It gives the impression that you are serious about the niche you are taking. It gives your customer a sense of relief that your blog is genuine.

  9. Hi, I have a question about this. I recently dropped the .blogspot.com by paying $10 for the year to have my new domain. I am now looking to take that domain and move it over to wix.com for my photography website. I never had the option to sign up for google apps when I bought it, so I don't have an account with them and don't want to have to pay the $50 yearly fee just to get the DNS. my question is, is it even possible to take my sites name and transfer it to wix without apps or no? When I loom at godaddy, it says the domain I am currently using on blogger is unavailable, so im assuming I own it. Why can't I move it???

    1. OK you will need to first access your Google Apps account.If you find one of the original Emails sent out after your bought the domain you will find log in details.

      Once in go to Domain management and you will find a link and details to log into GoDaddy (It could also be enom).

      Once logged into GoDaddy (Or Enom) you will be able to change the DNS to connect the domain to Wix, search for tutorial to connect a domain to wix.

  10. "Hi,
    You have a very good point of view when it comes to having your own email domain. You could also visit the site http://ownemaildomain.net/ as it provides good information on creating your own e-mail domain. The site has step by step instructions and the site creator shares his lessons learned from over seven years of having his own email domain. I'm confident that this information will help both beginners and advanced users who want to create their own email domain.
    Best of luck."
