Blogger custom domains

Oct 11, 2007

This blog is currently hosted at http://www.codesimple.net. This is a pity since the more succinct http://codesimple.net would be preferable. Unfortunately if I try and set the custom domain in Blogger to just "codesimple.net" it complains with a somewhat dubious "Another blog is already hosted at this address" message.

I think perhaps this is related to also having Google Apps active on this domain. Both services require you to point your DNS at ghs.google.com.

Also slightly odd is that Google do an HTTP redirect for any requests to http://codesimple.net to http://www.codesimple.net. I can't find any setting in Google Apps to control this "feature".
