Domain management sharing

Share domain management with other Google users

Important: If you purchase or manage your domain through Google Cloud Platform, then permissions are managed by Cloud IAM. Learn how to manage roles and permissions.

You can share management of your domains with other Google users. Each user you add will have full permission to manage the domain:

  • Manage registration: Renew, add years of registration, cancel or start auto-renew, delete the domain, and add or delete users.
  • Manage web presence: Manage settings for any websites, extra email aliases, or Google Workspace accounts.
  • Manage DNS settings: Add, edit, and delete any resource records or name servers, and turn DNS security extensions on or off.

Tip: Sharing a domain does not change the ownership of the domain.

To share management of your domain:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Open Menu Menu.
  4. Click Registration settings.
  5. Under "Domain permissions," click Add user.
  6. Enter the email address.
  7. Confirm you added the user.

The person you are sharing with will receive an email notification with a link to log into Google Domains.

To remove shared users from your domain:

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Select the name of your domain.
  3. Open Menu Menu.
  4. Click Registration settings.
  5. Under "Domain permissions," click Delete Delete next to the user to remove.
  6. Confirm you deleted the user.

If you deleted the user you are logged in as, you will return to the My Domains page. You will no longer have access to the domain.

If you delete the user who set up auto-renew for your domain, one of the remaining users must re-enable auto renew in order to keep automatically renewing domain registration every year. See "Domain renewal and restoration."

You cannot delete the last user from a domain. 

Things to consider when sharing domain management

  • If you have Google Workspace configured for your domain, you may find it helpful to share your domain with the Google Workspace admin user—especially the user responsible for Google Workspace billing. 
  • If a shared user wants to make any change that requires payment, like purchasing additional registration years or setting up Google Workspace, the user must use his or her own Google Payments account. 
  • Adding a user to your domain does not automatically add that user to any 3rd party website builders. You may need to add the new user directly to your website permissions on your webhost's site.
  • If a shared user adds or removes Google Workspace users, it will affect the usage and be reflected in the charge at the end of the month.
