Your Google Sites Page will have a domain such as www.mysite.com but when the domain is inputted as mysite.com it will go nowhere. In order to fix this, we will have to redirect the Naked URL (mysite.com without the www in front.)
In order to do this follow the examples below. In this case we will be using GoDaddy in the example.
Note: This is just one method. If your Registrar (where you purchased your domain) allows your to redirect your URL you may also do that as well. There are many methods to do so.
