Google Sites

Google Sites is an online web builder. Connect your domain to Google Sites by following the steps below.

Step 1 - Verify Domain

Google requires you to verify domain ownership using Google Webmaster Tools before using it with Google Sites. We recommend verifying the domain by creating a TXT record.

  1. Obtain TXT Record Value
    • Login to Google Webmaster Tools
    • Add Site
      1. If you have already added the site, click Manage property followed by Verify this property
      2. If you haven't already added the site, click Add a property
    • Verify Site
      1. Choose Alternate Method
      2. Choose Domain Name Provider
      3. Select Other from the drop down
      4. Copy your TXT record value (ie. long string that starts with google-site-verification=...)
  2. Create TXT Record
    1. Login to your Control Panel at https://www.misk.com/cp/
    2. Click on your Domain Name
    3. Under Essentials in the top area, Click DNS
    4. Click Add Record and select TXT
    5. Leave the Subdomain field blank
    6. Enter the TXT record value you copied from Google under Text
    7. Click Add
  3. Complete Verification with Google
    Go back to Google Webmaster Tools and click on the Verify button. If it doesn't verify right away (because of dns record caching by Google's servers), give it a few minutes and try again.

Step 2 - Point Domain to Google

After verifying the domain, you'll need to point the domain to Google Sites by creating a CNAME. Follow the steps below:

  1. Login to your Control Panel at https://www.misk.com/cp/
  2. Click on your Domain Name
  3. Under Essentials in the top area, click Website
  4. On the left, select CNAME / Hostname
  5. Enter ghs.googlehosted.com as the Hostname
  6. Click Save

Step 3 - Connect Google Site with Domain

Now all you have to do is connect Google Sites with your domain.

  1. Go to https://sites.google.com/
  2. Click on your site to manage it
  3. On your site's management page, click on the gear icon  in the upper right corner and select Manage Site
  4. On the left, click Web Address
  5. Under Add a web address, enter your domain name in the text-field (include the www, ie. www.example.com)
  6. Press enter on your keyboard to add your domain and connect it to the site
