Transfer a domain to Google Domains
Domain transfer requirements
To transfer a domain to Google Domains, you must have permission and cooperation from the domain’s current owner.
To transfer a domain to Google Domains from another registrar, you must typically buy one additional year of registration. In these cases, this additional year of registration is the only cost involved with transferring a domain.
- Wait times: You must wait for a period of time (typically 60 days) after the purchase or transfer of a domain before you can transfer it to Google Domains. Check with the current registrar for their specific limitations.
- Maximum registration period: In some cases, renewing the domain for the required one additional year causes the domain to exceed the maximum registration period. In these cases, you must wait until renewing for one year does not extend the total registration period beyond the maximum allowed.
Check the reference of domain ending details to confirm the maximum registration period for your domain.
- Outstanding administrative action: If the current registrar for the domain has outstanding administrative action against the domain, you cannot transfer it until the matter is resolved.
