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 8

Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.

 

Step 2 of 8

From there, select your desired domain from the drop-down menu within the Manage Active Products section and click Manage.

Alternatively, you can scroll down to the Domain names section and select the relevant domain name from the drop-down menu. Once selected, click Manage.

Select Manage

 

Step 3 of 8

Scroll down to the Advanced Domain Settings section and click Manage DNS.

Click Manage DNS

 

Step 4 of 8

Select the Advanced DNS tab near the top.

 

Step 5 of 8

Amend your domain’s A records so that it matches the details supplied by Google.
