You can easily manage your domain name with Google Domains and point it to your website hosted by changing some DNS records in your Google domains Dashboard.

How to change your DNS settings in your Google Domains account

  5. Update the DNS records with the IP address information provided to you. The below screenshot shows the standard configuration for Google Domains.

  6. Once these settings have been saved you have successfully changed the DNS records for your domain. These changes may take 1 - 4 hours to propagate throughout the web.

Note: If you get a warning and/or you are unable to add these records in and your domain name is previously connected to an old website you will first need to disconnect your domain name from this site. You should be able to do this in your DNS section -> Click on the site and choose to disconnect the domain. Once this is done you should be able to go ahead and add the DNS records in.

If you find that you are unable to make these changes yourself or need further assistance, please contact the support team at Google. They will be able to make these changes for you.
