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.

2016-01-31_paid I jumped to the DNS page and couldn’t find what I needed there and ended up back on the Domain page where it hit me, like a big, green button:2016-01-31_forward

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.
