2. Click on settings, basic and Publishing. Now tick on the box next to Redirect domain.xx to www.domain.xx.
3. Save settings and you will be done. Give it some hours for propagation to complete and you will be able to access your naked domain URL on the Full URL.
4. Now go to your domain provider Control panel go to the mapped domain, select add DNS, chose A records and add the different 4 IP addresses below eg Host @ pointing to 126.96.36.199. Instantly, your naked domain will redirect to the full domain.
What will happen is simple, Blogger will start forwarding your non www URL to the full domain and your site will be accessible on either way eg when one types thekonsulthub.com, it will be forwarded to www.thekonsulthub.com. This trick is simple and availed by Google by default with the only thing being activating it.
