1)Creating subdomain using Hosting plan
if you have hosting plan or a self hosted website, then you will have to create this CNAME Record with your Web Host.You might be able to do it from the “advance DNS zone editor” in most cPanels. If you don’t have such an option, contact your Web Host and ask them to create these two CNAME records for you.After creating this record with your webhost(and after it has propagated), publish your BlogSpot blog to that sub domain(Skip the tutorials for CNAME Creation on Different domain Registrars. They are not applicable for Self hosted Websites)
If you don’t have a self hosted website,then to create the CNAME you need to login to your domain control panel. Different Registrars have different interfaces but the basic thing is that you need to create the CNAME Record. If you bought the domain via blogger, then you have to first login to Google APPS to get into your Domain Control panel(http://google.com/a/cpanel/)
General procedure to edit CNAME records, Go to Domain Settings > Domain Names and click on Advanced DNS Settings.
