How can I map my domain name to my google sites account?

3.If you're adding this address now, click Continue. The "Site verification" page will open. If the address was already listed, click the Manage Site button next to the address or domain you want and then click Verify this site.
4.Click the Alternate methods tab.
5.Select Domain name provider.
6.Select "Other", and follow the instructions to manually create a DNS record. Send the DNS record back to Hostnownow to add it to your domain. Once we have added it.
7.Click Verify. Don't delete the record from your server, as this will cause your site to become unverified.

And, the final step. Please go to your Google Sites account and do the following:

- Go to the Google Sites Home Page
- Click on the name of your site
- Select Manage Site from the More drop-down menu.
- Click the Web Address tab.
