So recently, I bought with Google Domains, and it was super easy to get my portfolio to production with Layer0 as the developer-first deployment platform, and obviously Next.js the #1 react framework (well for me)!

Why Layer0 for deployment?

  • Framework Independent: Layer0 supports the most widely used technologies for building progressive web applications. React, Next, Vue, Nuxt, Angular, Sapper, Gatsby, Razzle, even Static HTML/JS!
  • Real Time User Monitoring: One line code to measure Real-Time Core Web Vitals!
  • EdgeJS: Clear caches, define own CDN rules, and cache splitting. Seems like a lot of power to developer already? Find many more reasons at

Why Next.js as my #1 React Framework?

Configuring Google Domains with Layer0

Steps on Google Domains

  1. Add a synthetic record for subdomain forwarding:

  2. Add custom resource records for automatic TLS certification and hosting it on the apex domain:

Steps on Layer0

  1. Deploy Your App (Or deploy an example Deploy To Layer0)

  2. Add domain in the settings tab of your project

  3. Configure TLS
    As you've already added the custom resource records, just click on Generate SSL

All set 🚀. Feel the speed now 🏎.
