Map a Custom URL in Google Workspace - Google Sites

How to map a domain web address as a custom URL to a new Google Site created in Google Workspace

For sites made with a Gmail or personal Google Account see Assign Custom URL Domain Web Address (Personal)


Google Workspace Custom URL for Google Sites

  1. Make sure your site is published and note its published URL

  2. Sign in to your Google Workspace admin console

  3. Go to Apps > Google Workspace > Sites and open Custom URL

  4. Use the Add custom URL button (the ✚ icon) and follow the steps in the dialogue box:

    1. Site type: choose New Sites

    2. Google Sites URL: Enter your published URL in the format

      • remove the https://
        and any page URL e.g.
        remove /home

    3. Custom URL: Enter the subdomain prefix you want to use as the custom URL, e.g. www

    4. CNAME: edit your DNS records with your domain provider (this is outside of Google Workspace and Google Sites) to add a www CNAME record that points to and once added use the ADD CUSTOM URL button

  5. You should see that custom URL is Pending while Google configures the backend (normally takes 30-60 minutes).


  • Make your new Google Site in Google Workspace appear at your own domain custom URL

  • Traffic to your site is secured via SSL (https) without any further configuration


  • If you made your site with a personal Google Account or Gmail account then please see Assign Custom URL Domain Web Address (Personal)

  • To map a secondary domain you need to create a site with a user account that uses the secondary domain as its sign in domain. This allows you to publish the site to the secondary domain. For more info see our demo.


  • This takes time to process so your site will not appear immediately at the web address

  • If the mapping does not work within an hour try again
