I have a google apps account, and in Site's settings, i have it so that anybody can view the site outside of the domain, logged in or not.

It works perfectly when viewing the url it gives( ...)

But i want to know if it is possible to get the site displayed at as you can with page creator. If anyone knows ANY work-arounds please help me out, I'm new to GApps so I'm not very good at it :

I don't think this is possible yet. Check, for example, the official site of OpenSocial: which redirects to ... .

It's on the wishlist
"Direct URL for a site, e.g., instead of using the long URL (not just a redirect)" ...

You will lose pagerank for your real domain and homepage url, if you forward visitors to as recommended here. ...

Haochi, changing that domain only redirects you to the Google Sites control panel. As Mike points out, there's currently no way to do this without using a redirect or frameset...

I don't really mind about pagerank, as this site will only be used for my dad's company. I don't know how to explain it but only his customers will visit it, and the url is, his companies name, so i doubt anyone would search for it. And we're not looking for new customers through the website, as there are no other channels to get what we sell in our country.

So thanks everyone, I'm going to go the redirecting route, as soon as I can figure out how to login to godaddy

OK, I've got it done, if anyone wants to see it check out (don't worry I'm not advertising, there's nothing on the site).
