Configuring the DNS - Episode 2

The two main domains following the Google instruction for blogger/blogspot sites. for the french version of the blog for the english version.

In fact, I had to be patient and wait for the DNS propagation. You can track the propagation with some sites like
Reducing the TTL may be an good idea, but you must do it the night before the change to be sure it is active.

The domain is redirected to, with an .htaccess file 301 redirection.
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) [R=301,L]

Other forms of redirection may be penalized by the Google search engine, which could be considered as "duplicate content".

To do the expriment I redirected with the simple redirection interface of my registar.

The, domain will be used for my teapot, with an simple 'A' record.
