    Hey, so 4 days ago I bought a domain trough my blogger dashboard... I done it before in the past, where it was easy and hassle-free.
    Now it seems like they changed something, I got no idea how to do it, and I haven't found a new related guide to their new system.

    Seems like I somehow, has to change my DNS settings trough my blogspot dashboard, which can be found in my google app account, which I somehow created by buying the domain. And then going to enom which should be "hosting" my domain and change some code to something else... I tried to do that, but it didn't work, still getting an error 404 from google when trying to access my website...


    Sorry for the poor explanation, I am really confused with their new system. Could anyone please help me out?
    Any help is appreciated.

    I could do it for you but it would mean giving me your login details to sort out the nameservers or setup a redirect. I wouldn't blame you if you were wary of doing this but if you want me to do it post me a pm.

    Tempting, you seem trusted here on bhw ;) but maybe you could just tell me what to change the nameservers to? If it's such an easy fix?

    It seems like I got a google aps account and I did verify my domain... It also seems in enoms control panel that the name servers is correct... And in my blogspot dashboard, I can see that the blogspot url redirect to my bought url, so I got no idea why I am getting that error 404 when trying to access my bought domain... GRRR
