HOWTO: naked domains and Google Sites

Google states you can't set up a naked domain with Google Sites.  I found you can and I'll tell you how.

First, a naked domain is when someone enters as a URL, just the domain (e.g. blueoakdb.com) and you'd like it to map to www.blueoakdb.com

While it's true you cannot set up an @ CNAME record, you can set up a Web Forwarder using an @.  By so doing, you emulate a naked domain.  :)

Test it out,  http://blueoakdb.com goes to http://www.blueoakdb.com
