I have a Google Site to which I want to point my domain, hosted by a third party. It was (relatively) easy to establish a CNAME for the www subdomain, but I haven't been able to point my root domain to the Google site using the DNS zones.
So this works for the subdomain:
www 14400 IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
For the root, tech support at my host has suggested
mydomain.example. 14400 IN CNAME www.mydomain.example.
but it doesn't seem to work either.
I have seen suggestions to use the solution provided http://wwwizer.com/naked-domain-redirect:
point your naked domain A-record to the IP address 188.8.131.52. And it will start to work as soon as your DNS updates.
But that seems iffy to me. Are there security concerns connected with using it?
