    normally this type of problem solves in 24 to 72 hours if it isn’t solved contact the host providers.

    Something’s wrong at the Server end. You need not to worry about it. They will fix it.

    Hi Anandu,

    Yes, it is just a matter of waiting AFAIK. Blogger recently announced that “the old interface is going away in a few days” (the “classic” dashboard and profiles where you edit your blog and settings). Google is doing some major upgrades to integrate Blogger with G+ and other services, so things will be a little wonky for at least the next week or so (note I said “at least”).

    I got this error too. I have both a self-hosted WP blog and a Blogger blog and wanted to redirect my Blogger blog to the custom domain I also use for WordPress, but just for right now, it’s a no-go. Maybe check back around October or so — it’s only a couple weeks away. :-)

    try to right click -> impact element.. you can find this code
    “subdomain.blogspot.com”
    try you change data-c value to 1, data-c=”1″..
    shimmerchoco.blogspot.com
    automatically input text to change the domain is shown, and you can change this. I edited it using the browser chrome and successfully.

    welcome to the godaddy debacle

    This error is shown whenever there is some sort of a scheduled maintenance work going on. It usually gets resolved within the day.

    • rejdz

      your right- so very slow maintenance action! IF THEY WANT MAINTENANCE BE IN GOOD SIDE MAYBE NEXT TIME WITHIN 24HRS MAX. NOT A GOOD BUSINESS BLOGGER TEAM

    • Being Traveler

      Its been 5 days now. I am also stuck with same issue. My blog is down.

    • sanam

      I have the exact same problem, it’s been 5 days for me now too, and since I bought the .com domain for my site i keep getting a 404 (not found) error whenever i visit the new website, even though i have registered it and my .blogspot.com has successfully redirected to the .com

  • Romi

    I think this is not an issue that we can solve.May be the maintenance section of blogger doing some kind of maintenance work may be for better workflow. I don’t know how much time it take to become normal condition .If anybody know that please let me know
    Thanks
