How to use DWI?

In  BHF, when it comes to custom domain, I or Chuck or any other expert mentioning a dig log URL mentioned most of the times as DWI.

What on earth is DWI?

DWI is expanded as DigWebInterface which is an online DNS Lookup tool which can be found at http://www.digwebinterface.com

How to use DWI? 


1. Go to http://www.digwebinterface.com

In the Hostnames or IP addresses text box, enter your full custom domain URL and naked domain URL as shown below and choose "Authoritative" under Nameservers list. (However not in all the cases, "Authoritative" works)

After doing this, click on Dig.
When the dig is complete, you should expect the following,

(i.e) 4 A records and 1 CName record.
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.36.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.32.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.34.21
@        1799    IN    A    216.239.38.21 
www    1800    IN    CNAME    ghs.google.com.

When you see an extra A record or a different CName record than this, or a different A record than these 4, please remove them and the above 4.

This should probably fix the issue.

P.S: The blog URL I have used belongs to a Blogger user who reported in the forum for an issue.

Meet a spammer

Let me start by a warning, This blogpost has nothing to do with howtoblog and is a story of a spammer.

Years ago we had to face a spammer in the forum(Probably during Pistachio?) who was very persistent. He was a link dropping spammer who kept sharing his blog URL under every reply in the forum and somewhere to his blogposts which merely had instructions from Blogger Help Centre.

It went as,
Thanks and Regards,
HIS NAME
HIS BLOG URL Probably it was so difficult for TCs to make him go away as I happened to see him for months, spamming in the forum and one fine day he disappeared and never returned.

I happened to find him and interview him which I am writing down here,

Blogger Language Confusions

In BHF, we recently had a great confusion on Blogger Platform language and Blogger Blog language. So I decided to go ahead and write in detail about it.

There are two important terms here to begin with,
Blogger PlatformBlogger BlogBlogger Platform is what you see when you go to https://www.blogger.com. The operating system that helps you write and manage your blogs on Blogger.
