3)Create Afraid DNS account
After successfully updating of Nameserver, now you need to create afraid account and click on Sign Up! and fill the form. Activate your account with the link mailed on your email account. Afraid is the free DNS hosting provider let you fully manage your own domain. It is very very simple to use and work quite well. Once you are done then you are ready to start.
Afraid is the most reliable free DNS provider and since it has free and premium services.In the free account, there are certain limitations and you cannot add many records that ultimately used to create a subdomain in blogger.

You will find “Add Domain” on the page somewhere. This is the place where you are going to add your domain to work. So click on “Add Domain” and you will be redirected to their domain manager.

I prefer to keep it private. Now submit the form. You will be redirected to Addition Success! page with the message ‘Domain yourdomain.com.np has been added to the system.’. You have to wait for few days until your domain propagates to afraid.org DNS Nameserver. It may take 2 working days or a week sometime.
