I am hosting the URL (www.getyourpansoff.com) of a friend as an add-on in a bluehost account. I want to use this URL for her blog (get-your-pans-off.blogspot.com).

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

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

In BlueHost, I have the following:

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 -> getyourpansoff.com

and not redirection.

Still does not work.

  • Is this now solved as getyourpansoff.com is now directing to a website?

  • No, it should point to a blog at: get-your-pans-off.blogspot.com Apr 2 '13 at 19:54
  • Is it your site that getyourpansoff.com is currently displaying?

  • Yes. I have just made some modifications to have www point to Google. The instructions say to wait up to 24 hours. Apr 2 '13 at 20:05

On 'A' (host), there should be www instead of www.getyourpansoff.

The redirect url may should point to http://get-your-pans-off.blogspot.com.

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

  • I have tried what you said, but it did not solve the issue. See my updated question. Apr 2 '13 at 19:15

I finally found those instructions. It works now.
