Naked domain and Google Sites

Yep,

Had to make a change with the DNS provider, so Hurricane Electric had to go. The problem with HE was that you couldn't have a wildcard as a hostname, meaning that I only had the address www.markushelander.fi in use. I was not possible to make a hostname or redirect from markushelander.fi (naked domain) to the www subdomain.


So, I went with 
Namecheap like I suggested in my first post (here), though, not as a domain registrar but domain name services.
You can have one free domain managed at Namecheap and that's more than fine with me. You can have several subdomains and for a veery low cost, 
an email forwarding to use your own domain as an email address. And that's cool.



Settings for Namecheap's domain management are as follows:

 Hostname   Address Record type MX TTL
 @ http://www.markushelander.fi URL Redirect -   60
 www ghs.google.com. CNAME (alias) - 60

Solution to the problem!



Thanks!
