that was easy

First step I could think of, now that I have a functioning WordPress install again, was to point my domain name over to this new site. A little trepidation as I had originally tried to use Google Sites to host a free public-facing website but that’s not as easy as it could be.

Off to my Google Apps admin console, then, and pull up the domain information. Not as easy as getting to, say, Drive or any of the other areas, but easy enough once you’re logged into your account. just go to https://domains.google.com

Everything you need to forward your domain is here on this first page, although I missed it first time around as I focused on the paid services.

Click the green Forward button, type the URL, click the blue Forward button and Voila!

It took way longer to write up than it did to actually do, even including my initial incompetence.

Let’s do this again!

Time to give the website another shot; it’s a new year and priorities change constantly so it’s out with the old webhost, and in with something different. I don’t want to let my domain name go, but I don’t want to keep paying for something that isn’t giving me something in return which means a free WordPress site.

I’m going to try and put content up here related to my interests, whether it’s because I find it interesting and want to share or want to be able to find it later.

Stay tuned.
