Blogger Custom Domain CNAME doesnt work anymore !

November 14, 2014 1.6k views

my blog is hosted by google in blogger.com they have option of have your own custom domain, by adding CNAME records to your DNS,

I added the CNAME record to my digital ocean long time ago and it used to work, but not it doesnt work anymore suddenlu. I re-added them to make sure and I waited 24 hours, no chance .

when I use http://mxtoolbox.com/ to see if the records been added I dont see any.

I can access the root of my domain name which is hosted digital ocean,
but I can not access the blog subdomain which is hosted by google

here is how my zone file looks like in digital ocean DNS page:

$ORIGIN medyagh.com.
$TTL 1800
medyagh.com. IN SOA ns1.digitalocean.com. hostmaster.medyagh.com. 1415897277 10800 3600 604800 1800
medyagh.com. 1800 IN A 162.243.3.93
medyagh.com. 1800 IN NS ns1.digitalocean.com.
medyagh.com. 1800 IN NS ns2.digitalocean.com.
medyagh.com. 1800 IN NS ns3.digitalocean.com.
blog.medyagh.com. 1800 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
v77jejufita5.medyagh.com. 1800 IN CNAME gv-g3nosu3ociuvet.dv.googlehosted.com.

  • It works.

    $ dig +short blog.medyagh.com                 
    ghs.google.com.
    ghs.l.google.com.
    173.194.78.121
    

    You probably just need to wait until your resolver refreshes the domain. Try flushing DNS.

    It loads, too.

    loads

    Although the images don't for whatever reason.

    If you filter by referral, don't. If your image host does, find a better one.

Your blog works just fine. You probably had internet connection problems temporarily or something.

it doesn't work for me I tried in two different locations at home and in AWS cloud

curl blog.medyagh.com
curl: (6) Could not resolve host: blog.medyagh.com
