I have one domain name i.e. example.com registered via godaddy.

  • Now, I want to host my personal blog on blogger/blogspot with this url (i.e. on subdomain) "http://subdomain.example.com"
  • And, I want to host my full website on different webhost (It is a
    free host which supports all the PHP features) but it does not allow me to modify CNAME and A records of domain.
  • Godaddy allows me to modify DNS Settings of my domain name
    including CNAME and A Records but only if it's name servers are used.

Now, Solve my Problem. I will be very much grateful to you.

  • Use Goddaddy nameservers
  • Learn NS-management interface in order to add needed for 2 sites (hosts, not subdomains!) RR in zone definition
  • Select names for your hosts (let they be www and blog in this example)
  • Read blogspot docs about using your own hostname with service (it will be smth. like "you have to point your host to somename-of-blogspot-domain"). Do it, i.e add

blog CNAME somename-of-blogspot-domain.

to your zone definition (dot is a must)

  • Order host on independent hosting and remember IP of your future site
  • Add to zone one more RR

    www A ip-ip-of-hosting

  • Create www.domain site on hosting

Relax and have fun

What is RR here? – Krishna Oct 3 '11 at 10:28
RR is abbreviation for Resource Record - formal name for string with data in zone-definition – Lazy Badger Oct 3 '11 at 12:40
Is it possible to apply this for n different web hosts? – diegoaguilar Jan 24 '14 at 12:43
@diegoaguilar - yes, why not? Just add more different IN A records – Lazy Badger Jan 24 '14 at 17:17
