How do I point my domain to Google Sites? (Blogger)

This article will show you how to direct visitors to your domain name to your Google Blog.

Before you get started, you’ll first need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers. Otherwise, any configurations you’ve made to the DNS through our Control Panel will not take effect.

You will need to set your DNS at your nameserver provider. For more information on how to do this, please view the following article: How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?

Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver changes to become active.

Once you’ve done this, simply follow these instructions:

Step 1 of 9

Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.

Step 2 of 9

Next, select Manage All opposite Domains within the ‘All Products and Services’ section.

Step 3 of 9

You will now see a complete list of your purchased domain names. Select the domain you want to update from the provided list.

If you can’t find your domain in this list, you may be able to find it on the Domain Name Overview page within our legacy Control Panel. For more details on this, please read the following article: How do I access and manage my products?

Select Domain

Step 4 of 9

If you’re using our current Control Panel, select DNS in the navbar and continue to step 6.
