Windows 7: Connecting domain name to a web site

Connecting domain name to a web site

Has anyone here registered a domain name for a Wix site? I paid an upcharge on Wix for this ability and I purchased 2 domain names (both today), but I am a little confused as how to get Wix and one of the domain names to work together. I think I got both the domain registrar and Wix pointed to each other, but when I type in my url, I am not taken to my Wix site.
Domain registrar:
Domain name:
Wix page: Blue Spruce IT Consulting

The other domain name is supposed to go a site hosted free by Google sites. They give better instructions than Wix, but when I go to link the Google site to the domain, I get this error:
JavaException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: null
I googled this, and went through their forum, but got no help. There does not seem to be any way to directly contact Google about this. That error occurs both in IE & Firefox.
Domain name:
Google site:

Any guidance with this would be most appreciative.

Resolved the .com address with Wix. I have to wait for about 72 hours to see if it works though.

Google sites still no go -- wonder if the error stems from the domain name using .info, NOT .com, .net etc...

Cant' change domain on https site
I am logged into a domain "ABC". I open the browser and navigate to an HTTPS site that requires a login. That site is using AD to validate logins and passwords. Problem is, when the browser prompts for username/password it does not accept a domain name. It keeps the ABC domain. Any ideas here?
