G Suite Web Address Mapping

  1. Make sure your site is published and note its published URL
  2. Sign in to your G Suite admin console (admin.google.com ⇗)
  3. Go to Apps, G Suite, Sites and expand Web address mapping
  4. Use the Add web address link and make sure you choose new Sites from the Version drop-down.
  5. Choose the primary or secondary domain in Site Location that the site is published to
  6. Enter the published URL of the site in Site Location and enter the web address you want the site to appear at in Web Address
  7. Use the Add Mapping link and G Suite will instruct you to add the appropriate DNS records (a CNAME record that points to ghs.googlehosted.com - this is with your domain provider) and once added use the I've completed these steps option

Notes

  • 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

Limitations

  • 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.

Capabilities

  • Make your new Google Site appear at your own domain
  • Traffic to your site is secured via SSL (https) without any further configuration
