Integrate with Google Sites

Use Google Domains to create websites or connect to your current Google Sites account.  

Create a site  

  1. On your computer, go to Google Domains.
  2. Click the domain name you want to manage.
  3. Open the Menu Menu.
  4. Click Website and then Build website.
  5. Under "Simple site," click Continue.
  6. Click Start new site. 

Important: If there’s a domain name system (DNS) conflict, you'll get a notification. Otherwise, Google Domains defaults to "www" and redirects the root domain. To use a subdomain to specify a different fully qualified domain name (FQDN), open the DNS page. Then, delete the conflicted DNS settings 

Connect to a Google Site 

Tip: If you previously created your Google Site through Google Domains, your site’s already connected. 

Important: Before you connect your Google Site, make sure you use the same account for both Google Domains and Google Sites.

  1. On your computer, go to Google Domains.
  2. Click the domain name you want to manage.
  3. Open the Menu Menu.
  4. Click Website and then Build website.
  5. Under "Simple site," click Continue.
  6. Click Use existing site.
  7. Enter the subdomain you want to use.
  8. Select the Google Site you want connected to your domain.
    • If you only want to connect the full site name that starts with "www," uncheck the option to redirect the entire root domain to your Google Site.
  9. Click Connect site.

Convert your classic Google Sites

If you use a classic Google Sites, convert from classic Sites to the new Sites then follow the preceding instructions.
