Google Domains – Manage resource records

Create, modify, or delete a resource record

Important: Resource records may take 24–48 hours to update across the entire internet. Different internet users may get different results when they try to visit or use your site during that time. Confirm that you save your changes to each altered resource record before you edit the next one.

You can modify your domain’s resource records to add verification, create a subdomain, or change which name servers you direct users to.

Use the Time-To-Live (TTL) field to define how often machines and browsers should update your records.
