I have mapped my domain to www. from a new google site however it will not work at https:// or also at the naked domain. What have I done wrong?

Hello,
 
Perhaps provide a link to both the custom domain and the google site url and then we can take a look at your settings.
 
Additionally, as I do not yet know if your site is a personal site or a site through gSuites, perhaps see the appropriate link below that describes mapping for a personal site or a site through gSuites.

Oh, 
 
I see the site's url in the www  and can also see you have the site working now.
 
Nice work!!!
 
Note that https:// non-www is not designed to work with google sites.  Also, you should set up the root domain to redirect to the 'www' as described in the links above.  I can see that you have a personal site, so review the related link above.

Hi,

Here is that link again, hopefully google will not rewrite the url to a broken link...


As mentioned, the https://non-www url is not designed to work in google sites. 

With the http://non-www, you need to add another DNS record, see the following, 
  • Alternatively add an A record of @ (or your naked domain) that points to 174.129.25.170 (a free service from wwwizer.com)

Thank you, it is starting to make sense however when I try to add the A record this error message comes up."The new DNS record conflicts with the active service The DNS records of the service will be disabled, so that the entry is valid for the domain." 

Do I assume you can only have one of, either a CNAME record of www that points to ghs.googlehosted.com. or an A record pointing to 174.129.25.170 for the naked domain.

My domain is with 1&1 and is not through GSuite.

Hi,

Perhaps that conflict is due to the existing "A" record pointing to 217.160.0.90
Keep track of that IP address, then edit it to the 174.129.25.170 if possible, or delete that "A" record to 217.160.0.90 and then add the new "A" record to 174.129.25.170.

Note that you can have both the CNAME on "www" and a "A" record on the root domain in this case.

i found that it took a bit of time 24 hrs then i had to check if it was working in an incognito window in chrome.  Whilst its working there and in firefox it is still not working in edge and firefox.
