Custom domain setup in Blogger.com is used to create your own blog URL. (for example: from mastergblogs.blogspot.com to mastergblog.com.ng).
When you purchase a domain from Garanntor.ng, they assign an IP address (A record and CNAME record) for the domain. Hence, you need to change those records to point to your Blogger.com blog. This post can help you to change the A and CNAME records of your Garanntor.ng account easily.
