Removing information from a domain

If you want to remove information from a domain registered through Google Domains, in most cases you need to contact the registrant who manages the domain and ask them to delete the content in question.

Learn about Google's process for responding to reports of policy violations in the Reporting abuse article.

Why contact the registrant

Google Domains is a registrar. With Google Domains, Google simply manages the registration of domain names on the Internet.

After a registrant registers a domain name (such as example.com) through Google Domains, the registrant takes responsibility for that domain. The registrant – not Google – adds, manages and controls the content that is found on the domain.

How to contact a registrant

There are several ways to contact the registrant of a domain:

  • Find a 'Contact us' link or an email address for the registrant or webmaster. This information is often located on the homepage of the domain's website.
  • Locate the domain’s registrant information using a special search called a WHOIS lookup. For more information, see WHOIS lookup.

    The WHOIS lookup will return contact information, including email addresses. Contact the registrant using the email address found under Registrant Email or Admin Email. If you're unable to reach the registrant, try contacting a technical representative using the email address found under Tech Email.

Report a Copyright Violation on a domain registered through Google Domains

The Google Domains service manages the registration of domain names. After a registrant sets up a domain name through the Google Domains service (such as example.com), it is the registrant, not Google, that manages and controls the content that can be found on web pages or other materials posted using the registrant's domain.

We encourage you to resolve any disputes directly with the registrant who manages that website. For more information, please see How to contact a registrant.

If you believe the registrant is using other Google services to host material that infringes your copyrights, please reference Google's online removal forms for more information on how to request that the infringing materials are taken down. For other copyright concerns, please contact the registrant or its hosting provider directly.
