The new version of Google Sites allows to create a new site (eg: MySite) with a URL like so: https://sites.google.com/example.com/mysite

while the old version (Classic Sites) would generate the site under https://sites.google.com/a/example.com/mysite

If I have a secondary domain or subdomain like foo.example.com in the same G Suite account, how can I create a new Google Site under the new version like: https://sites.google.com/foo.example.com/mysite

I have tried creating a new site while logged into an account jdoe@foo.example.com that has no alias under the primary domain example.com. It allowed me to only publish to a site of https://sites.google.com/example.com/* instead of https://sites.google.com/foo.example.com/*.

    When you say secondary domain, you're meaning subdomain, right? – Brandon Zappy Mar 1 '18 at 13:35
  • Not just subdomain, I mean any additional domain added to the G Suite account – Julio Mar 4 '18 at 15:29

To rephrase the OP's question:

  • With the "classic" Google Sites, you can create a site under my_domain_1.com
  • With the "classic" Google Sites, you can create a site under my_domain_2.com
  • With the "new" Google sites, can you do the same thing?

ANS: At the moment all sites in "new" Google Sites are under the primary domain of the G Suite account. It is not possible to use it for a secondary domain.
