I need to be able to automatically redirect a URL that was registered with Google to another URL. No access to server or anything like that. Is there a way to do this with just messing with the DNS?
The Google help page says you can access your hosting account by clicking the "advanced DNS settings" link in the control panel.
From that page: "Google doesn't register or host domain names. We've partnered with a few companies that offer these services to make it easier to set up a Google Apps account."
This makes it sound like you can access hosting or registrar info from 3rd party sites which should give you what you need.
Hope this helps.
