3.6.3. Connect domain to Google Sites

The domain must be served on our NS... If the domain is served on third-party NS, the actions need to be performed not with us, but in the panel of their owner.

To connect a domain to Google Sites (instructions from google), do the following:

  1. Delete existing A and AAAA records, as well as any other record types with the same subdomain for which you will be adding a CNAME record1)
  2. Add an entry with the following data:
    • «Subdomain"- insert the name of the subdomain (for an address like www.example.com in this field you should specify www).
    • «A type"- select"CNAME».
    • «Data"- insert target address ghs.googlehosted.com.
  3. Wait for the update DNS cache systems DNS... This usually takes several hours (maximum 24).

Additionally, you can configure the site to work at the main address (without www) by redirecting requests to the site from www.

To set up a redirect, enable straight webredirect and in the field “URL for address»Enter the address of your site from www.

As a result, there will be the following scheme of site availability:

  • When accessing the address from www via HTTPS - the site will be opened directly from the Google server (this is the main mode of operation).
  • When accessing an address from www via HTTP, a redirect to an address from www via HTTPS will be performed.
  • When accessing an address without www via HTTP, a web redirect to an address from www via HTTP or HTTPS will be performed (depending on how the target address is specified in the web redirect settings).
  • When accessing an address without www via HTTPS, the site will not be available.

For example, if you will be adding a CNAME record for the www subdomain and you already have a TXT record for the www subdomain, then this TXT record must be deleted, otherwise you will not be able to add a CNAME record.
