Connect Google Domains to Weebly

Connect Google Domains to Weebly

Connecting your custom domain from Google Domains to Weebly is pretty straightforward and relatively easy.

The first one is to add the domain as the Site Address in Weebly and the second is to point your domain to the IP address assigned to your site.

Note: Just like other web host providers such as Wix, Squarespace and Shopify, you need to have a paid hosting plan to be able to connect your domain name to Weebly.

Part 1. Add your existing domain in Weebly

  1. Login to your Weebly.com account
  2. Select the website you wish to link to your domain.
  3. Click the Settings tab at the top
  4. Under General > Site address click the Change button.

You’ll be shown two options for making the necessary DNS changes to your domain: One for doing it yourself, and one for emailing your domain host for assistance.

Choose one of these options and follow the steps to get your DNS records updated to point to the provided IP address.

Don’t forget to publish your website to the new site address when the process is complete.

 

Part 2. Point Your Google Domains to Weebly IP address

This part varies depending who’s the DNS provider of your domain name.

But if you’re using Google Domains name servers, you just need to point the root domain @ and subdomain www to the same Weebly IP address. Example Weebly resource records:

12. Pick your site from the drop down list, click Connect Site to continue.

13. To verify your domain is linked, open Weebly site editor, go to Setting | General and view Site Address. If not, click Change to set your domain name.

14. Test your domain address in a browser. If the domain URL loads successfully, Congratulations! You’ve successfully connected your domain.

 

Publish Site

Once you’ve updated the domain’s DNS settings, return to your Weebly site and publish it.

Due to DNS propagation delay, you may not be able to see the changes immediately.

 

DNS Propagation

All DNS changes may take 24 – 48 hours to fully take effect across the entire internet. This delay is also known as DNS propagation.

If the DNS has been properly configured and the domain has been added successfully through Weebly, it’s just a matter of time before you see the domain integrated with your Weebly website.

 

If you have another domain from a different domain registrar that you wish to connect with Weebly, check this post.
