Domain management sharing

Share domain management with other Google users

Note: Sharing a domain does not change the ownership of the domain. To change the owner of a domain, see "Transfer a domain between Google Domains accounts", and "Contact Information".

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.
  • Mange web presence: manage settings for any websites, email aliases, or G Suite accounts. 
  • Manage DNS settings: add, edit, and delete any resource records, synthetic records, or DNS server settings. 

To share management of your domain:

  1. Open the Settings tab Settings (gear icon) for the domain you want to share. 
  2. Under Domain Permissions click Permissions
  3. Add the email address of the google account to share the domain with and click Add
  4. Confirm the added 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. In the Settings tab Settings (gear icon) click Permissions
  2. Click Delete next to the user you are removing.
  3. Confirm the deletion.

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 G Suite configured for your domain, you may find it helpful to share your domain with the G Suite admin user--especially the user responsible for G Suite billing. 
  • If a shared user wants to make any change that requires payment, like purchasing additional registration years or adding G Suite seats, 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.
