    I bought a domain off godaddy and am using it right now with blogger.

    I changed the cnames to ghs.google.com so it works now when you type www first (i.e http://www.freebmoney.com)
    I also changed a(Host) to point to 72.52.251.34 and accessing freebmoney.com worked for a little, but now it's not.
    Could someone help me?

    Create a .htaccess (text file) in the root and put the following content in it

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yourdomain\.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    ^ that's just a workaround, forces www on your domain.

    You'll just have to wait, I waited around a week after changing name servers on my domain, and all was fine. :)
