How to Solve non-www to www Redirect Problem in Blogger?
After purchasing a domain you would prompt to set it up. But after successfully domain setup most of us do a silly mistake that they don’t enable 'www' redirect. As a result when you type your Blog URL with 'www' they Blogger display error page.
Many people think that this error evolved from Domain. But in real this is a problem of Blogger.
While we create a Blog on Google Blogger then we get a Google hosted domain that comes with yourdomain.blogspot.com and when we setup a third party domain then we must use that naked Google hosted domain with third party domain (yourdomain.com).
In real your Google hosted domain redirects to third-party domain nothing else.
As a result, when you type yourdomain.com then it works fine. But when you add www.yourdomain.com then Google Blogger will display an error page, because DNS server can’t recognize your third party domain with www.
How to redirect my domain from non-www to www on Blogger?
We can solve this issue by enabling non-www to www redirect feature in our Blog. And this is very easy to activate.
Step #1: Log in to your Blogger Account and Go to your Blogger Dashboard
Step #2: Click on Settings from left vertical menu

If you are using a custom top-level domain then it will be activated within 24 hours. However, it depends. Suppose if you have activated your domain recently then it can take a maximum of 48 hours.
But if you are using a blogger hosted domain like "yourblog.blogspot.com" then it will activate by default.
