Google Domains features

Every domain you buy or transfer to Google Domains includes features to make getting started online easy and managing your domains simple.

No additional cost for private registration

When you register a domain with Google Domains, we cover the cost of keeping the details of your domain registration private (e.g. your name, address and other contact information). For additional information about domain privacy, please see Private registration.

Email forwarding

Create up to 100 email aliases with your domain, such as help@your_company or sales@your_company, and have them forwarded to existing email accounts, like you@gmail.com. For help with this process, please see Email forwarding.

Easy domain forwarding

Point your domain name to an existing domain and website. This feature can be used to drive users to one location. An example would be forwarding www.example.net to www.example.com. You will be able to complete this process once you purchase or transfer a domain to Google Domains. To learn more, please see Web forwarding.

Customisable subdomains

Customise your domain with up to 100 sub-domains, such as blog.example.com and shop.example.com. This will allow you to create unique pages within your website. Please see Resource records.

Fast, secure and reliable Internet infrastructure with Google

Every time you visit a website, your computer performs what’s called a "DNS lookup". When you manage a domain with us, you get to use the same DNS servers as Google. This means your domain name will connect quickly and reliably to your website. We include 10 million resolutions each year per domain. To learn more about the Domain Name System, please see About DNS.

Simple domain management tools

A full set of simple-to-use, robust domain management tools are at your disposal:

  • Add and manage resource records: A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, SPF, SRV, TXT
  • Use Google Synthetic Records for integration with Google App Engine, subdomain forwarding and G Suite setup
  • Add and manage name servers
  • Configure TTL
  • Domain locking

To learn more, please see Resource records.

Easy integration with top website builders

As soon as you purchase or transfer a domain to Google Domains, you can immediately start creating your website with one of our partners (additional cost associated). Features include secure and reliable hosting, customisable templates and powerful features like drag & drop creation and mobile site-management. For more information about our partners, please see Web presence.

New domain endings

Over the next few years, hundreds of new top-level domains (TLDs) like .guru and .technology will become available. We will be working to provide you with as many options as possible so you can find the most relevant and meaningful names as you get started online. To see what is available, please see TLDs supported by Google Domains.

The Google Domains Support Team is available every day:

  • 24 hours/day by chat and email.
  • From 6:00 am to 9:00 pm US Pacific time by phone.
