Redirecting your domain from Google Domains


Before we start: If you don’t yet have a domain for your Bookmark website and you were thinking about registering one from Google Domains and then redirecting it to Bookmark, hold on a second! Did you know you can register a new domain directly through Bookmark, and save yourself some hassle? Check out Registering a domain through Bookmark for details.


If you already have a domain registered at Google Domains and wish to use it for your website, you can point your domain to by following these steps:


Step 1: Log in to your Google Domains account

Open a new browser tab (so you can follow along with this guide), and login to your account at Google Domains.

Step 2: Select My domains

Click the tab to manage your domains.


Step 3: Select the Advanced tab


In the next window, select the tab for Advanced options:


Step 4: Add Custom Resource Records


We will need to add two custom resource records, pointing to Bookmark’s IP Address, which is


Don’t worry - it’s pretty straightforward. First, scroll down the Advanced setting page until you find Custom Resource Records. It looks like this:


Fill in the fields as follows:


Name: @

Type: A




Then click the Add button.


Next, we’ll make the second Custom Resource Record that we need. It’s the same as the first one, except for the first field, Name. This time, we need www as the Name.


Name: www

Type: A




Step 5: Double-check your new records

Please make sure you have entered the correct IP Address. If you need to fix anything, use the Edit button beside the record.



That’s it! Remember to log out of your Google Domains account before leaving their website. It might take Google Domains up to 24 hours to make the changes, so please be patient.


And thanks for choosing to build your beautiful website!
