This guide will walk you through setting up a custom domain with Google Domains.

If you just purchased the domain name moments ago and/or just updated your DNS settings on Google Domains, it can take several hours (sometimes up to 48 hours) for the settings to propagate and your site be up and running.

Managing your New Custom Domain

Below is the account management area at Google Domains. Click "My domains" to see a list of your domains. You should only have one if this is your first domain.

Your new domain may take a few hours to work. Clear all your cookies and cache on your browser and load up your new site!

Note: Setting up your custom domain this way means you do not have to make any adjustments to your nameservers. This is true no matter where you've purchased your domain name from.
