Google Sites Web Address Mapping to Multiple Domains, Secondary Domains.

Intro:
In Google Apps for Work, in the past, you could only web address map a Google Sites to a subdomain of the primary domain. Let me explain:
  • You run Google Apps for the Primary Domain:  kirksvillewebdesign.com
  • You want to launch a new site on your Alias/Secondary Domain: googlesitesintranet.net
This was impossible unless you moved your Google Site off of Google Apps completely and into the free Google Sites/Gmail world. You lose the security, extra hosting space, and other benefits.

Update:
Here's what Google had to say in a very recently update:

Complex businesses can require multiple Google Apps domain instances to meet their needs. Previously, certain domain management functionality was restricted to primary domains only, making managing multiple domains a bit cumbersome. With today’s launch, we’re extending several key features to secondary domains to make managing multiple domain instances more seamless:

Web address mapping―have your Google Sites appear under custom URLs for all of your domains, such as hr.yourdomain.com, hr.yourdomain.in or hr.yourdomain.fr.

So yay!
