Need certificate for blogger blog with custom domain

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): blogger

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Windows 10

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I don't know

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): I don't know

I tried your suggestion but it failed with a message that I did not have the authority. Does it take time for Blogger to know I have contacted Let's Encrypt?

I'm not sure what you mean by that latter part, but opening a thread on this Community doesn't influence anything at the Let's Encrypt side of things: Let's Encrypt is fully automated, nothing manually to be done. So this thread doesn't make any difference.

Further more, I see some "irregularities" with your current setup:

  • Your hostname resolves to the IP address which is not a Google IP address (Blogger is a Google service), but a GoDaddy IP address;
  • The IP address is not reachable on port 80 nor port 443, so browsers can't connect to it at all: your site is down.


It appears to me that:

Your domain registrar is: eNom
Your hosting provider is: GoDaddy

You need to point to blogger.

FTI: It is quite difficult to CNAME a domain name ("").

That's absolutely correct, @rg305. Some decisions need to be made as to where the blog will live.

You are speaking to a tech limited person. I am not sure where I go from here.

How do I point to blogger

Hi @srta,

Did you see @griffin's link above to this guide?

This describes how to change your DNS records at eNom in order to point your domain to Blogger. (I haven't verified the content myself, but that appears to be what it's explaining how to do.)
