Google Labs and Google App Engine URLs

This feature will be moving to the Google Developers Console by the end of August 2015. To configure your custom domain name using the Google Developers Console, refer to Google Cloud Platform documentation. Permissions are stricter for setting up domain access using the Google Developers Console. In the Google Admin console domain administrators can add URLs from their domain to any App Engine project for which they have the project ID. In the Google Developers Console domain administrators can only add URLs from their domain to App Engine projects for which they are editors or owners. Learn more about Configuring your App's Authentication. Follow these instructions to get the new permissions you’ll need.

How do I change the access URLs for my application?

By default, when you deploy your service on Google App Engine, your service is accessible at your-application-id.appspot.com.

To provide a stronger brand experience for your application, you may also want that application to be available at my-brand.com or www.my-brand.com using these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. Click Company profile > Custom URLs.
  3. Add or remove additional URLs for your service, such as:
    • http://servicename.mydomain.com
    • http://subdomain.servicename.mydomain.com
    Note: If you purchased your domain through Google, instructions for accessing your registrar are available in the Advanced DNS section of the Admin console.
  4. Once you specify an additional access URL, you may be prompted to complete the set up with your registrar if you didn't purchase your domain through Google. If so, follow the provided instructions to configure CNAME records with your registrar.
You can only create custom URLs for your primary domain. Learn more about Account Access URLs.

How do I enable secure (HTTPS) access to my application?

Your application developer may configure your application to allow, require, or deny HTTPS access to your application. By default, Google App Engine supports HTTPS access to applications when accessed at their appspot.com URLs, for example https://your-app-id.appspot.com. Once installed on your domain, your application can always be accessed at its appspot.com URL. In addition, you have the option to enable SSL for custom domains.

Note: If you've installed a Google App Engine application into your domain prior to June 27, 2009, you may be required to reinstall the application to enable access to the application at https://your-app-id.appspot.com.

I'd like to map my app to http://myurl.com (also known as a naked domain).

Due to recent changes, Google App Engine no longer supports mapping your app to a naked domain. If your domain registrar supports URL redirects, you can redirect from http://yourdomain.com to your app, which can be served from domains like http://www.yourdomain.com or http://appid.yourdomain.com.

For instructions on how to configure a redirect for your Google Apps domain, see Options for customizing web addresses.
