How to set up subdomain on Google Domains

Google Domains is a domain provider allowing you to buy and host your domain.

If you’re using a Google domain as your registrar, follow these steps to set up a subdomain in your domain. You need to configure your DNS records and point your domain name to your Share tribe server. It may take up to 48 hours for these changes to propagate across the web.

Once your DNS settings have been updated, go to your administrator’s General/Domains page to view and start using your custom domain.
