I am hosting the URL ( of a friend as an add-on in a bluehost account. I want to use this URL for her blog (

I have configured the URL in the blog itself, and Google seems happy with it.

However, when I try to open the blog using, I do not see the blog.

In BlueHost, I have the following:

enter image description here

I also have a redirection:

What am I doing wrong and how to solve it?


What I have now:

A     record www ->
CNAME record www.getyourpansoff ->

and not redirection.

Still does not work.

Is it your site that is currently displaying? – John Wheal Apr 2 '13 at 20:03
Yes. I have just made some modifications to have www point to Google. The instructions say to wait up to 24 hours. – JVerstry Apr 2 '13 at 20:05

If you want to display instead of blogspot, this is server side stuff, could be solved with mod-rewrite.
