I have set up Cloudflare to redirect www.hanxue.co and the naked domain hanxue.co to my blog http://hanxue.blogspot.com - works without any problem.

When I change the subdomain to blog.hanxue.co, the redirect does not work. Here is my Cloudflare DNS settings:

Cloudflare DNS settings for hanxue.co

This is the error I got when I visit the domain:

Blogger redirect error

Note that changing the CNAME entry of blog to www and updating DNS settings at Blogger to www, works perfectly fine.

  • That's not an error... it's simply informing the user that the website has moved. It's perfectly normal, and why do you have 4 A records pointing to 4 different IP addresses? – Simon Hayter Jun 5 '17 at 10:40
  • It is an error. When I go to blog.hanxue.co, I see that message. Clicking will simply redirect me to the same page. A PTR is required for custom domain as per support.google.com/blogger/answer/… – hanxue Jun 5 '17 at 14:40
  • You need to tell Google of the sub domain BLOG you can't use anything-you-want.example.com without informing Google. This is because at their servers they add the subdomain to their virtual host configuration. So please edit your question and include the screenshot of you adding the cname 'BLOG' during the setup of your custom domain. – Simon Hayter Jun 5 '17 at 15:47
  • fyi, 4 A records pointing to 4 different IP addresses is part of the correct setup for pointing a a blog made with Blogger to a custom domain. – MaryC.fromNZ Jun 7 '17 at 10:42

You say that you have redirected www.hanxue.co and the naked domain hanxue.co to your blog http://hanxue.blogspot.com

But I wonder if you really want to redirect your blog http://hanxue.blogspot.com to your custom domain www.hanxue.co or perhaps a subdomain of it like www.blog.hanxue.co

If that is the case, then you need to start in Blogger: Use the Settings > Basic > Publishing item to choose the re-direction, and then use the information from this screen in Cloudflare to set up you CNAME record(s).
