To point your domain to Google Sites, first, you need to configure your domain in Google sites platform, then open your domain’s DNS Zone Editor. We will add A and CNAME records.

Step 1 - Adding A records

A records that you need to create at the domain’s DNS Zone:

Record #1

Record #2

Record #3

Record #4

Host: @

Points to: 216.239.38.21

Host: @

Points to: 216.239.36.21

Host: @

Points to: 216.239.34.21

Host: @

Points to: 216.239.32.21

The result will look like this:

Step 2 - Adding a CNAME record

You only need 1 CNAME record with the following values:

Host: www

Points to: ghs.googlehosted.com

It will look like this:

After that, you will need to verify your domain (STEP 3) with Google, it might take up to 4 hours to Google recognize your changes and accept your new domain.

And it's done! Now just wait for propagation and your website will work with Google Sites.

NOTE:

  • If these records for the same host values were already added, you need to delete them before adding new ones.
