Buy a new domain or use an existing one for your website

For your new Google My Business site, you can use a domain name, like "example.com," that you already own. You can also purchase a custom domain from Google.
 

Purchase a custom domain

Buy a new domain for your website

Google offers free hosting for the site you created on Google My Business. Your website will have a name you choose with a "business.site" web address, like "yourcompanyname.business.site."

To get a custom domain, like "yourcompanyname.com," you can buy one for your Google My Business website: 

  1. Publish your site and click Buy domain
  2. Search for a custom domain name and purchase it from Google Domains. It’ll automatically connect your website to your domain name.

Connect your Google domain to Google My Business

You can connect your existing Google domain to use for your Google My Business website. Before you do, make sure you’re logged in to the same Google Account used for both, and that you own the domain and the Business Profile on Google. 

  1. On your computer, sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Click Website
  3. Your Google domain will show. Click Connect
  4. To confirm, click Connect again.
  5. If you want to review your website, click Visit site.

Forward your third-party domain to your Google My Business website

Sign in to your hosting company account and choose a “Redirect” option or similar. You can also contact your hosting company and tell them to redirect your existing domain to your new Google My Business site.

Redirect your domain to the URL for your new site provided during the Google My Business site creation process.

For more information, visit the website of your hosting provider. Some common providers include GoDaddy, eNom, and Network Solutions.
