Guide to create subdomains in Google domains


The benefit of making subdomains

We can create many subdomains, check your domain name registrar website for how many subdomains you can create with your domain.  If you already got Adsense approval for your domain means then you can place ads in your subdomain also.  Just add your subdomain in the sites section of adsense ( Select the site and click more details and add your subdomain).

Google domains is now sold to squarespace domains.  So all existing domains will move to squarespace.  After completely moved all google domains to squarespace, domain renewal price in squarespace will vary and also new buying domain price will be high than google domains.


Make Subdomain in Google Domains

  1. Open your Google Domain name registrar
  2. Select the domain for which you want to create subdomain
  3. Then select DNS option in the left menu
  4. For the below procedure you need to use Google Nameservers
  5. In the Resource Records area Choose Custom Records.
  6. Then create a new record by entering the values described below.   
    • Choose Type as CNAME
    • Enter your subdomain name alone in the Host name ( Eg: My domain name is, I need to create subdomain as then enter help in the Host name area)
    • In the TTL area leave the default value as 3600 (means 1 hour)
    • In the Data field enter (You have to enter your host name in the data field, I am going to host in Google (Eg: blogger) so I enter in data field).  For more details about Data field contact or read knowledge base for your domain name registrar and hosting provider.
    • After all click Save Button.
  7. After some minutes (2 to 3) refresh the page. Then you connect your subdomain to your host and it will take 10 to 15 minutes to view your subdomain website.

What you need to enter in Data or Points to field?

Many are having doubt in Data field or in some registrars they may call Points to field.  So what you need to enter in this field?

In that data section for Google domains, if you want to create subdomain with CNAME then you have to enter your web host's record. That is the website name of web host, usually it looks like To host in blogger, you can enter

If you created A record means then you need to enter the A record of the web host. It looks like IP address.

If you are creating subdomains in other registrars means then their website interface will change. In that place also, you need to enter data (or "Points to" name will differ) but the value is similar which I mentioned above.

For every registrars, they mentioned in their websites about what to enter in "Data or Points to" section.

For More reference  - (refer step 2)

Connect your subdomain to Blogger


  1. Go to Blogger.  Create a new blog or use already created blog.
  2. Then go to Settings and choose the option custom domain.
  3. Then enter your custom domain name (Eg:
  4. Then click Save.  Don't press Redirect domain.  If you press redirect domain means then your main domain will redirect to your subdomain.
  5. Don't forget to add HTTPS.  Blogger provides free HTTPS, after connecting your subdomain it takes sometime to setup your HTTPS.
  6. Now After 10 to 15 minutes your sub domain starts working.

  1. Thanks for the help.
    The new appearance is a bit confusing

  2. hi sir, there is another youtuber choose A , instead of CNAME for type, what is the difference?

    1. You can use A record for linking domain to physical IP address. Or use CNAME for linking alias name to another true or canonical domain name.
      Use an A record if you manage which IP addresses are assigned to a particular machine or if the IP are fixed. Use a CNAME record if you want to alias one name to another name.
      Usually A name is faster than CNAME because CNAME results 2nd DNS lookup for the domain name specified in the CNAME

  3. That is very useful thanks for the info.
