Contact information

When you register a domain, you must submit contact information for that domain. There are three types of contact information:

  • Registrant: Owner of the domain
  • Admin: Person responsible for administrative decisions about your domain
  • Tech: Person responsible for technical changes to your domain 
Anyone can find your registrant information through a WHOIS lookup. If you do not want this contact information to be public, enable private registration.

How to change contact information

To update your contact information, take the following steps.

  1. Sign in to Google Domains: domains.google.com/registrar.
  2. In the left-hand navigation menu, click My domains.
  3. Click the domain name whose contact information you'd like to change.
  4. Scroll to Personal contact information
  5. Click Edit below the type of contact information to make changes.
  6. After you have edited, click Save.
  7. Select the way in which you would like to receive a verification code. 
    • Email: Check the email address in your contact information. Follow the link in the email to verify the change.
    • Text message or phone call: Check for a six-digit code in a text or voice message. Enter the code in Google Domains, and click Accept and Continue.
When you provide email contact information, you do not give that email the ability to manage your Google Domains account. To allow others to manage your account, learn how to add Google Domains managers.

About non-ASCII characters

You can use non-ASCII characters in your contact information. However, some domains do not support these characters in WHOIS results. In these cases, the results substitute English alphabet (ASCII) approximations for any international characters that you include in public contact information.

You cannot include non-ASCII characters in contact email addresses for domains that do not support international characters. Check the list of character sets that each domain ending supports provided by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
