Reasons I like Google Domains compared to other domain registrars:
β€’ Pricing is simple and it doesn’t change year to year.
β€’ Privacy protection comes included, hiding your name and address from the public.
β€’ The interface is intuitive and simple similar to other Google products
β€’ Use the same two factor authentication that your Google account uses for enhanced security.

  1. Kevin what size should I make my images before uploading? if they all are 10mb each it takes a lot of space on gdrive and the site is slow.
    thanks for any help.

  2. You are helping me to finish the website I started a few months ago. I don't need a professional designer with their own domain since I already bought one and maintain it with the ever-all-purpose Google.

  3. When I register a domain name with Google, is it possible to also set up sub-domains to link out to features that are not available to be run directly within Google sites?

  4. Google Sites does make it look very simple, but I've been staring at that template for several months now until I searched for a tutorial and watched this one.
    Thank you for such a complete and comprehensive walkthrough!
