DNS Mapping is the process by which access providers, enterprises, governments, universities, and other organizations, assign ranges of IP addresses for their domains. It will provide the much-needed feature to map a website with an existing domain.
Use your existing domain name for your new site
You can use a domain name (like example.com) that you already own for your new Google site. If you’ve had a website on your domain for a while and it appears when you search for your business on Google, your new Google site can use your existing domain name.
To do so, you’ll need to either login to your hosting company account or choose a “Redirect” option or similar, or contact your hosting company and tell them to redirect your existing domain to your new Google site.
Once you find a redirect option, point your domain to the URL for your new site provided during the Google My Business site creation process. To find your new site’s URL, return to Google My Business, select Website from the menu, and then click Setting in the toolbar on the left side. At the top of the panel that appears, you’ll see your site address.
DNS Mapping will help you and your customers to access your server easily and efficiently without knowing the IP your existing server.

DNS Mapping Overview
You keep the domain registered with the company you purchased it from (the registrar), such as GoDaddy or 1&1, but point the domain here so it loads your WordPress.com site.
- You will still need to pay the current registrar to keep the domain active every year.
- Some domain settings and configurations will need to be made with the current registrar.
- If you’re trying to map a subdomain (for example blog.yourgroovydomain.com instead of yourgroovydomain.com), use our given solution.
