Hashnode blog with custom google domain
1 min read
You just signed up for your Hashnode blog and now you want to link your custom domain in Google Domains.
On Hashnode.com You do the following:
- Go to your blog settings
- Then Click on the Domain option on the sidebar
In here in the input box you type in your domain but must be preceded with your sub-domain.
So you input value should be like in exemple : blog.danmonceau.fr
Now on the Domain registrar site Here Google Domains more specifically, we do the following steps after selecting your domain:
- Go to the DNS section of your domain
Here in the custom resource records area we add a new record with type of CName with the name and value (or data) of hashnode.network. which in my case the values were like
After you hit add, it might take a few minutes for your changes to take effect *depending on your registrar. later when you try your root (main) domain again it should load just fine as it will be automatically redirected to your sub-domain by the browser (client app).
