Do you get a domain with Google Sites?
When you first-time set up your Google site you get a free domain which starts with sites.google.com/yoursitename. which is free of cost for a lifetime. If you want a custom domain then you buy it from Google domains, Namecheap, Godadaddy, Crazydomains, etc domain name provider service. And you can connect it with your site.
How do I get a free domain on Google Sites?
You can use Free domain name providers like Freenom and then connect this domain to Google sites. If you ask me I would suggest dont using these free domains as they are slow and can be owned by a Domain company anytime. Instead, I would suggest going and bur simple .com domain which would cost around $7-$8 and will benefit you more than enough.
