Change a site URL

This article is for administrators of the classic Google Sites (no “Publish” button at the top right). Get help for administrators of the new Google Sites.

G Suite administrators can change the URL for any public site in classic Sites. Using 'example.com' as the example domain, and 'yoursite' as the site, the standard URL for a site is http://sites.google.com/a/example.com/yoursite. This could be changed to http://www.example.com through the Google Admin console. Here's how:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenSites.
  3. Click Web Address Mapping - classic Sites.
  4. Click Add a new web address.
  5. Enter the location of the site you want to map ('yoursite' in the example above).
  6. In the 'Web Address' field, enter the sub-domain you'd like to map it to (www in the example above).
  7. Select Save changes and follow the instructions provided. Depending on your domain registrar, you may need to make CNAME changes. You'll see instructions for making CNAME changes after you select Save changes.

Note: you may need to wait up to 24 hours to see your changes reflected. This feature is not available for trial domains.
