Add Bigrock Domain to Blogspot Blogs

You recently purchased your domain from and now you want to redirect your Blogspot Blog to your recently purchased domain. This task is pretty easy when you purchased your domain from GoDaddy or Google Blogspot. For a newbie like me it was a tough task to understand How to redirect my Blogspot Blog to Finally with a little bit of Googling I got this done.

So I thought of featuring this tutorial on "Adding a custom "BIGROCK" domain to Blogspot / Blogger Blogs."

To begin with, you should purchase your domain from As soon as you purchase domain from you will receive a confirmation mail from Bigrock with subject : "Completed: Registration of for X years". Here is the domain name you recently purchased and X years is number of years for which you purchased your domains.

Managing your Domain Name

You can manage your Domain Name by logging into your Control Panel

Step 1. Login to your account using this link.

Step 2. Click on "Domains" (from navigation - menu) and then click on "List All Orders".
A list showing all your domains will be displayed.

Step 3. Click on the domain.

Step 4. Click on the DNS tab (found on the top navigation - menu) and then on "Manage DNS". We will have to make changes in the DNS settings.

Step 5. Click on CNAME Records and then on "ADD CNAME RECORD"

We will now add two CNAME records one with the www prefix and the other without the www prefix. Why this is important is explained with an example.

Suppose you have registered
Adding two CNAME records would allow us to point both and to your blogspot blog. Thus even if someone does not type in the www prefix, he would be able to access your blog.

Step 6. Adding the CNAME Record

1. With the WWW prefix
For Host Name type "www"
For Value type in "" (within the space provided for typing in a fully qualified domain name) and then click on Add Record and you record would be saved.

2. Next we have create another record without the www prefix
Again click on Add CNAME record.
For Host Name enter nothing
For Value type "" and click on Add Record

Step 7. The final step is link the domain to your blogspot blog. Go to your blogger dashboard and click on More Options -> Settings. Step 8. On Basic tabe we can find Publishing settings. Next Click on "Add a custom domain" and then "Switch to advanced settings"
Here enter your domain with www prefix as and hit the save button. On Publishing settings select Redirect to


NOTE: It would take some time (upto 48 hours but usually lot less than that) for the domain settings to propagate across the internet.

Samsung Galaxy Note review


Catch this:

ARM Cortex A9 dual core 1.4GHz processor

1GB of RAM

a super AMOLED HD with whopping resolution of 1280 by 800,

10 hours of rock solid battery life

16 GB of flash memory

8 megapixel rear camera

and a lot of class. That’s exactly what’s behind the latest and greatest Samsung right now. Yes you caught it right, I’m talking about the Galaxy Note.

Have you already heard about this? It’s the one Samsung claims “sets you free” — in the sense that it can be both a phone and a tablet… except it never quite manages to set standards in either.

Consider 5.3 inch screen both as a boon and a curse!!! The device runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) using Samsung’s “tweaked” TouchWiz UI (at this point, let’s face it, Samsung -TouchWiz was never a good idea).

While it works well for the most part, it never quite manages to cast an impression of awe on the user, which is very disappointing considering the money you’d be spending on it. The USP of the Note, though, is its stylus, which has unimaginatively been dubbed the S-Pen.

It latches onto the device and can be used for taking notes, sketching, and as a precision pointing device for one of the four customised apps that are designed specifically to be used with it. It also has buttons that turn it essentially into a multifunctional accessory. This is the single reason you’d want the Note over any other hybrid, and you’ll be glad to know that it’s a delight to use.

All in all, this device has a lot going for it — it’s crazy fast, it’s Android (though an Ice Cream Sandwich announcement is still in the works), and it’s got a delightful HD screen that might have you drooling. But then there’s the form factor. Would you want something that’s way bigger than your average huge smartphone, but miniscule when you put it head to head with your tablet?

If you ask me, I’d be rather uncomfortable using this as a phone (and trust me, anyone will be) and I can’t imagine doing any actual note-taking on these dimensions — it’s just too small. Like I said, it’s both a boon and a curse. Whether you want a Rs 34,000 double-edged sword is entirely your decision.

I want to hear from you what do you think about Samsung Galaxy Note?
