Problems when linking to a Google Site

I have verified by domain name in Google Webmaster, but whenever I go to my domain (www.projectsbyaidan.com) it goes straight to the GoDaddy parked webpage or just a "This Site Can't Be Reached" page. I replaced the CNAME (www and @) with www and ghs.googlehosted.com) but nothing seems to be working. Below is a picture of my DNS records. DNS.PNG

I have no idea what the problem is. I had to wait overnight for Google to see my updated DNS records but it did eventually validate my ownership. I know I can have GoDaddy simply redirect to my Google Site, but I want my GoDaddy URL to be in the URL bar when accessing my site, rather than the sites.google.com url.

You need to add forwarding to www.projectsbyaidan.com this way if someone does projectsbyaidan.com it will forward to www. which redirects to google
