Publish a Google Site to a Secondary Domain

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 and then map the domain. For a demo see Publish to and Map a Secondary G Suite Custom Domain.

Publishing - Limitations

  • Respects G Suite Drive Publish permission - your G Suite admin can prevent public publishing for example or external sharing (this is not an option for personal Google Sites)

  • Cannot publish individual pages or a subset of the site - the Review changes and publish feature informs you of what has changed since the lat publish, so this will help you decide if it's the right time to publish or what changes need to happen before publishing.
