Use New Google Sites on your own domain!

Context

Fall 2016, Google introduced New Google Sites, it's a very nice product, it allows the creation of nice and responsive websites that suits well either for mobile and desktop use.

Sadly, Google [at least at the time this text is being written, [August 24th, 2017] doesn't support the usage of a custom domain name yet [link].

News [August 29th, 2017]! It seems that Google will allow in a hopefully near future the use of a custom hostname with the new version of Google Sites [link]. Meanwhile, Go Google Site Proxy, is something you'd try if you can't wait for this feature.


Solution

"Go Google Sites Proxy" is a lightweight and efficient proxy for the New Google Sites. This software proxy allows the use of a dedicated domain.

This piece of software runs on almost any platform (any platform supported by the Go language) and run as well in a small Docker container. This software is distributed under a GPL-3-style license.
