Adding a Custom Domain to a GitLab Pages Site

My logical-progression blog site is built using the Hugo static site generator and is hosted on GitLab Pages. With GitLab Pages custom domains are possible, and I was keen to use the logical-progression alias. Initially, however, I couldn’t remember who my DNS host was! A problem, as resource records need to be added there to enable the alias. The problem was based on the fact that… The matttea.com domain was purchased via Google Domains My webhosting was with Interserver My thinking was that I needed to add the relevant CNAME and TXT resource records to the Google Domains dashboard (as it was the clearest dashboard to work with), and by doing so I was prompted to use the Google domain nameservers.
