Setting Up Your CNAME with Google Domains

How to add a CNAME to your Google Domains hosted domain:

Before you add a CNAME to your Google Domains, you may want to add your domain to Unbounce.

See our full guide about connecting your domain to Unbounce here.

  1. Log in to your Google Domains account.
  2. Click on the domain that you’d like to update with a CNAME record.
  3. In the left menu, click DNS. A new page will appear.
  4. Scroll down until you see the Custom resource records section.
    • In the Name field, type the subdomain you would like to use for your site. Example: try, get, promo. If you want to use your naked domain, type www.
    • In the Type drop-down menu, select CNAME.
    • In the TTL field, enter 1H.
    • In the Data field, paste in the unique ID code that you received from the Unbounce Builder.
  5. Click the ADD button.

All set! You’ve successfully added your CNAME record to your Google Domains domain.

Note:

CNAME records can take a few days to propagate. Once it's ready, you can ensure your pages are published where you want by making sure your domain is added to Unbounce and your landing pages are pointing to your custom domain.

Now that you’ve added your CNAME record to Google Domains, you’ll want to change the URL of your landing page in the Unbounce builder.  

If you've followed these steps and are still experiencing difficulties with your custom domain, take a screenshot of your current DNS setup and contact us using the Help widget in the bottom left corner of Unbounce.
