My domain verification failed

If you get an error that says your domain verification failed, it could be due to timing or how you entered the verification record.

Try these fixes first

  • Wait 48 hours—Sometimes it takes up to 48 hours for the domain to be verified.
  • Re-enter the verification record—It's possible the verification record was not created or entered correctly. You need to troubleshoot your verification method (see below).

Troubleshoot your verification

How you troubleshoot depends on the verification option you used.

I don’t know how I verified

You need to contact your domain host for help entering your verification record. To find your host, see Identify your domain host.

My records are correct but domain still not verified

If you waited 48 hours and confirmed your domain verification records are in place but your domain ownership is still not verified, contact Google Workspace support.
