A website authoring and hosting service introduced in 2008 that is part of Google Workspace. Google Sites provides templates for people to fill in the blanks with images, text and links. A collaborative service, Sites lets multiple people work on the project. An existing website can be copied and turned into a Google Site for backup or to generate a template from which to develop a new site. To create a Google Site, users must have their own domain name, which becomes part of the URL.
From Classic Google Sites to Google Sites
In 2016, Google revamped Google Sites, and the old version became Classic Google Sites. Users of the original version had to update to the new version by 2021. See Google Workspace
This Encyclopedia as a Google Site
Merely as a test in 2018, the website of this encyclopedia was published on Google Sites for a brief period. It took less than a minute to publish a working copy of computerlanguage.com. The URL was: sites.google.com/computerlanguage.com/website/home.
