Mapping Domain Name - I have my domain name registered here www.capshulacancanaans.co.uk but I want to map it to my google site - it seems relatively straight forward and I have done everything but it is not working.
I have added the CNAME www and location ghs.google.com is there anything else I should do here.
Thank you
Kate

This is probably a question for Google Sites support or a tutorial that they may have, as it would depend on GS requirements for the DNS settings and the way the registrar of your domain manages the DNS settings.

The other aspect is that sometimes the propagation of the new settings through the web can take a little time. 48 hours is considered as the cut-off.

Hi all,
I'm trying to do the same thing - I have a website built using googlesites and I'm trying to use my Yola registered domain to point to it. I've added a CNAME www ghs.google.com. Do I need to do something with the 'A www 72.52.4.95' record?

Thanks very much!

Hi Krill Space,

You do likely need to update your A records to their IP address as well. We can check your settings for you if you reply with your domain name.

Hi Krill Space,

It seems to be working now. It may have been the delay in propagation?
