How to Build an E-Commerce Website

What can you do with Google Sites?

With Google Sites, you can create websites for various purposes, such as:

1. Mini websites;
2. Affiliate product landing pages;
3. Blogs;
4. Publicize your company’s services and contacts;
5. Presell to take to some sales page;
6. Online courses to share with your guests;
7. Email capture pages;
8. Marketing research;
9. Sales pages for any physical or digital product;
10. Portfolios.

If you don’t have the technical knowledge to build websites, you don’t have the money to invest in hosting, or you just want to create a project in a simple and practical way, then Google Sites is a great option.
 
However, it is important to remember that there are some limitations to this tool, such as setting up a virtual store or inserting a pixel to work with remarketing.

Creating a free Google website with your own domain:

Now let’s talk about the step-by-step procedures on how to add your own domain to a website created on Google Sites.
 
Google Sites is a Google platform where anyone can create a website for free, quickly and without having to understand anything about programming.
 
The only requirement is that you must have a Google account.
 
In addition to being free and intuitive, the platform allows you to create a free website with your own, personalized domain, such as: www.sitename.com.
 
But not everything is perfect! Google Sites does not allow you to configure the pure version of the domain (ex: sitename.com.). It only works if the URL contains “www”.
 
But there is a way to get around this limitation through the Naked SSL service, which redirects a pure domain to the “www”.

What are the advantages of using your own domain?

1. Credibility Gaining

A professional domain gives more credibility to those who access your site, generates more authority.

2. Shortest and Better URL

As the domain address is shorter, it is easier for people to remember.

3. Less Competition

For those who advertise on Google Ads, for example, using their own domain reduces competition and lowers the amount you pay per click.

4. Google Indexing

Google indexes custom domains more easily, so it’s easier to show up in searches.

With the website verified, you must go back to Google Sites and re-enter the domain. The verified icon will appear. Click on “Next.”
 
Then Google asks you to go back to your registrar and include a new entry of type “CNAME”, with the value “ghs.googlehosted.com.” > copy this value and don’t forget to include the period.
 
Before including the new entry, it is important to DELETE the TXT entry, as the site has already been verified. Click on the “x” > “Save”
 
Then click on “New entry”, in field 1 type “www”, in field 2 choose the type “CNAME” and in field 3 paste the copied value > “Add” > “Save”.
 
DNS entry type CNAME
Then you have to go back to Google Sites and click on “Done.”
 
The next step is to access the browser and verify that the domain is already pointing to Google Sites.
 
Here it can also take minutes or hours to propagate DNS. If it gives an error just test it some time later, it will work.
