Add a custom domain to an App Engine application

Get away with appspot.com and choose your more personal domain name

Posted on One min read

When creating an App Engine application, you may want to use a custom domain name, instead of the generated one at https://[YOUR_PROJECT_ID].appspot.com.

Here is how:

  1. Buy your domain name at your favorite registar (e.g. domains.google or namesilo.com),
  2. Head to https://console.cloud.google.com/appengine/settings/domains/add?project=[YOUR_PROJECT_ID],
  3. Update the DNS records of your custom domain as described in the form,
  4. By default, you’ll get a free, Google-managed, auto-renewing SSL certificate!
  5. Enjoy.
