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 Bookmark.com website, you can point your domain to Bookmark.com 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 log in to your account at Google Domains.
 



Step 2: Select My domains

Click the tab to manage your domains.

Click the “DNS” Tab.
 


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 54.191.83.178.

 

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

Data: 54.191.83.178
 


Then click the Add button.

Next, we’ll make the second CNAME 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: CNAME

Data: ns.bookmark.com
 


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.
 


Step 6 (Optional): Connect The Domain to Your Bookmark Website

If you haven’t done so already, it is now time to connect your Google domain to your Bookmark website. This is done simply by going to your website editor, then click on SETTINGS ---> DOMAIN ---> click on CHANGE under “CURRENT DOMAIN” and then Connect a Domain You Already Own.



Step 7 (Optional): Publish your Website.

Finally, to update the changes, simply Publish your website.

 

That’s it! Congratulations, your website is now live and successfully redirected from Google Domains. It might take Google up to 48 hours to make the changes, so please be patient.

And thanks for choosing Bookmark to build your beautiful website!
