I created the domain example.tk on Freenom. I use that URL on a Google Site. Everything works accordingly if you use "www.example.tk". However if I only type "example.tk" nothing is displayed. Can you please help me on this?

Thank you!

  • In DNS, do both www and the root domain use the same IP address? – Steve Oct 28 '20 at 21:34

    I can point the subdomain to the desired website but not the root donain, freenom does not allow it. Solved using url forwarding on root domain. Thanks you! – user Oct 28 '20 at 23:08
  • Check your DNS zone settings to see if you have an "A" record for "www" entry of your domain then The "A" record should point to the same IP as your default main Domain – AjayGohil Oct 29 '20 at 3:51

Using the prefix 'www' it works because it's the subdomain the points to the desired google site. Using url forwarding from the naked domain to th subdomain does the trick.

  • I tried using the forwarding thing but it doesn't work. If I redirect to google.com it takes me there but when I redirect to my www subdomain, it doesn't... I am hosting on replit.com and my register is freenom... Any help? – user117933 Mar 16 at 12:31
