    Sounds weird. Make sure your .htaccess is not blocking anything.

    .htaccess is also thing that came to my mind. Are you sure that you can't get to any files on your server in any way? It's a shame :p

    You should redirect @ to Blogger as well to have all the subdomains directed, not just www.

    Hey , he's/she's right. You will not get .htacess files on blogger. Wait a minute, you have to check your registrar end for 404 error.

    Make sure that .htaccess is not doing any harm. Try to redirect non-www version to www version of the site. Contact people at Google webmaster forums and get help from Google engineers regarding the same.

    This is the best solution for the problem.
    Don't know why but OP still get the same problem till now. It's been a week but the problem still exist.

    You have two solution.
    1. Redirect naked domain to 'www'.
      webdevelopersahil.com => Cname => www.webdevelopersahil.com
      It will redirect naked domain to 'www' for sure.
    2. Point your naked domain to four Blogger IP address. and 'www' to ghs.google.com
      Code (Text):
      1. webdevelopersahil.com.    1800    IN    A    216.239.32.21
      2. webdevelopersahil.com.    1800    IN    A    216.239.34.21
      3. webdevelopersahil.com.    1800    IN    A    216.239.36.21
      4. webdevelopersahil.com.    1800    IN    A    216.239.38.21
      It will make your both naked and 'www' work properly. Make sure to control it through G-Apps.
    Using the first option is recommended if you didn't want to use add-on features such as 'domain email' and other nice features.
    Second option will make you able to control your domain through Google Apps.

    .htaccess is not available as you didn't use hosting. Only domain management available. Blogger already have nice tutorials and help for domain purchased from GoDaddy. You can use it to help you solve the problem.
