  1. this didnt help at all. i dont see "properties" anywhere, nor does the video tell me how to get there. my view looks nothing like the begining of this video. you missed multiple steps.

  2. Hi Steegle! I was able to add my domain in google. However there is no option in Google Site to add custom url in the more options button(three doted menu). Any insights? Thank you!

  3. Hi, i used and i got this message from wwwizer can u help me pls?

    You've got it all wrong!

    This message is from naked domain redirect service WWWizer, that redirects from to

    You have to point only A-record to WWWizer. must be pointed to your hosting provider.

    If you already made this change and still see this message wait until your DNS updates.

    DNS setup for Google Sites A CNAME

  4. help me pls, it says

    "You have to point only ( A-record to WWWizer.

    ( must be pointed to your hosting provider.

    If you already made this change and still see this message wait until your DNS updates."

  5. Thank you for the video, all clear and easy to follow.
    The only problem I encounter is when I add the custom URLs (as on 4:55) and I press Assign, I get a message at the bottom which says "the URL assignment has failed. Please try again "
    I keep trying for few days but I get the same message.
    Any ideas?

  6. I've added https:// and https://www as properties, but when I go to my "Sites" page, and click on the "more" icon, there is no option to add custom URLs.

    Also, at 2:20 you add a DNS CNAME record, where it sounds like you say ghs.googlehosted. but you type ghs.googhosted.

  7. Hi, thanks for your video.
    I want to custum my New Sites site.
    I own my URL.
    I also own a G Suite account.
    My 3 dots menu (showed in your video at min 4:17) have less voices than yours: it hasn't "Custom URLs".

    Can you please help me?
    Thank you in advance,

  8. Yes, I find the video a bit difficult to follow – especially nailing down definitions of terms and consistency with the instructions that google provide, and videos others have made. What would be informative (for me at least), would be a video showing how to add a custom URL to New Google Sites – using Google Domains. I have set one up, but I had to scratch together info, in a haphazard way from various sources. It works, but I still get the feeling (because of lack of concise and good instructions) that I maybe missing something. The google instructions from google were what I relied on mostly – although they seem to lack full definitions, which leaves me with the feeling that I need to do more. The verification process seems to be different when using Google Domains???

  9. I am really struggling with this. I migrated my classic google site to the new google site. I updated my TXT with namecheap but 20 hours later still no google verification of ownership. Any ideas?

  10. I followed the steps but it is still acting just like before where my Custom domain gets forwarded to the website. Do we still need g-suite account to display custom URL when I open the site? Also, I use google domains so entire process was straight forward.
