Following the picture above, the important Cname information you should copy from the error message in your site, are the two under www. And ghs.google.com. They are similar to the once below.

Step 9: Now, you can open the other tab. That is, your whogohost blogspot area. Fill all the information you are asked to fill. Provide the following:
A Security Pin: First, you have to provide a security pin that will enable you to protect your domain from anyone else. The security pin should be anything you like. Any number you want.
