Need help with instructions

I have for months been trying to setup my cloudlfare account and connect it to google domains. I have during these months, been recieving help for which I am gratefeul for, but still gotten nowhere besides finding the problem. Which is, acording to the help I got:


Now, working with google domains has been very tough. I think this problem from the start is mainly due to their errors, since I did nothing except of following the basics of creating a site.
Which is why I am wondering if anybody can send a link of the steps i should be taking to fix the problem of which where my IP address if pointing towards. I don’t know what i should be doing or what I’ve done wrong. I have also tried myself but with their complicated system it is confusing.

Contact your domain registrar namecheap is what I see for the site pending in you account at the moment. Ask them to remove their nameservers and replace them with the two that are shown on https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/dns.

Next, contact your hosting provider and ask them to verify the IP address of your site. At the moment the value / content of your DNS A record (Address record) is an IP that is owned by namecheap.

I think you may be confusing Google Sites, which is a web page builder platform, with Google Domains, a registrar that was sold to Squarespace.

If you are trying to configure a custom hostname for Google Sites, you will still need to update your nameservers at you registrar, Namecheap. Once that is completed, you will need to create a CNAME rather than an A record. That CNAME will need to be set to :grey: DNS Only.

My current registrar is google domain. I don’t have any connection to namecheap. I don’t know why my the content of my DNS A record is an IP owned by namecheap. Any idea on how to resolve this problem?
