As the title states. Blogspot.com has an option where I can buy a domain from dreamhost and set it where it's my own .com. Excited, I went straight to DH and registered a domain. I then went back to blogspot and put in my shiny new domain in the publishing options. I saved the settings and went to my domain...no connection.
Come to find out, I need to create some sort of CNAME and coordinate the DNS servers to the google based blogger. After a few hours of research I finally went to my DNS advanced settings where it redirected me to the manage domains section. Ok cool...no...my domain isn't there. So I click on the add domain section and it asks me to buy a host.
Blogspot clearly states that I DO NOT need to buy any hosting and I just need to register a domain. Blogspot basically redirects by blog to my new domain.
Shoulda took some web development classes in college.
