Domain forwarding with masking not working

I want to forward my following GoDaddy domain: http://data-analysis-textbook.com/ with masking to the following URL: https://sites.google.com/site/bekesg/data-analysis-course . In Firefox it does forward, but without masking. But in Chrome and Chromium it doesn't forward at all (just shows a blank sit with a sad smiley). I set up forward with masking today (2019.07.23., Budapest, GMT+2 timezone, 11am), how come it doesn't work? Thanks in advance.

Google doesn't allow masking like that - in which it uses an iFrame to display the site. 

 

You would need to point your domain to google - Here is a link to Google help which walks you through the steps needed to link the domain on their side. Then in GoDaddy you will just need to update the DNS settings
