I have a question that is driving me nuts. I am tinkering with the new Google Sites system. But, there is a small configuration requirement that I can’t seem to figure out. I can set up a mapping on the Google Sites end of things with a CNAME (usually “www”) and that tends to work. But, the root domain becomes a problem. There is no mapping or A-record to conduct any type of forwarding to the “www” CNAME within Google - so, it needs to be external.
In the past, I would just set up domain forwarding via the domain registrar but I am keen to do the same thing on CloudFlare. Yet, I am missing something obvious. How does one direct the root domain to resolve on the CNAME “www”? I have no IP to point to and this is where I am getting lost.
I know this must be simple to fix but I am just banging my head against the keyboard. Any thoughts would be awesome.
