I'd like to build a website and am looking for options on building and hosting. I came across Google Sites and noticed that I could effectively use a domain name that I've purchased rather than the sites.google.com/mysite address.
I'm not sure if I'm using this all correctly though. I have nothing hosted on www.mysite.com. I only purchased the domain and no hosting options. Is it possible for the Google Sites application to simply use the domain name and thus I can host/build a website for free through Google Sites? I'm not sure if I'm using this right.
I changed the CNAME and server to point to google.com, but I'm not sure I did it right or if it will work as I imagine. Can someone here explain to me if it's possible to do what I want to do? I'd much rather simply buy a domain name for $10 a year and use the Google Apps to build a website very simply that can also integrate many features seamlessly.
