Connecting a Custom Domain with Google

Ready to connect your Emaze website or blog to your personal domain? Here’s how!

First, please note that to connect your Emaze website to a custom domain, the custom domain must be an existing domain purchased from a third party domain provider with Google. If you want to connect a custom domain with GoDaddy, check the instructions here.

Second, connecting a custom domain to an Emaze website is a Premium feature. If you are a free user, please upgrade to an Emaze Premium account to continue.

These instructions are specifically geared to a Google domain. For all other domain providers, the steps should be similar.

  1. Login to your Google provider portal
