Mapping Your GoDaddy Domain to Google Sites

I've started migrating my sites from Squarespace to Google Sites. Here is how I mapped each of my GoDaddy domains to point to Google Sites:

  1. Change CNAME of the www subdomain in GoDaddy for the domain to ghs.googlehosted.com. I recommend using the GoDaddy app for this instead of the poorly designed website.
  2. Verify the GoDaddy domain using Google Webmaster Tools.
  3. This will kick off the verification process which will prompt you to login to GoDaddy.
  4. Add the GoDaddy domain to the Google Sites site under Manage Site -> Web Address. This must be in www.<domain_name>.com format.
