Verify your domain registration

Important:

  • The registrant contact email address for your domain might differ from the one that you used to sign in with when you bought your domain.
  • When you register your domain, give the registrant contact email address.

When you register a domain, we check the contact info that you give in your domain's registration settings. We send a verification email to the registrant contact email address of your domain. This verification is needed from the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

  1. In your domain's registration settings, go to the registrant contact email inbox that you listed.
  2. Open the verification email.
  3. Follow the steps in the verification email.
  4. Sign in to Google Domains.
    • Use the email address that you used to sign in with when you bought your domain.
  5. Select your domain.
  6. Click Menu Menu and then Registration settings.
  7. Below 'Contact information', find the verification status.
    • You'll find the registrant contact email address. If the email listed is incorrect, change your contact info in Google Domains.
    • If you can't find the email in your inbox, click Resend verification email. Then check your inbox.

If you have any issues, you can contact us.

Tip: You can also give your registrant contact email address the ability to change your domain. To let other people change your domain, learn how to share domain management.

Get a new verification email

If you don't verify your domain registration in 15 days after you register or change your contact info, your domain will be on hold. You can ask for a new verification email, even if you can't open the last.

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
    • Use the email address that you used to sign in with when you bought your domain.
  2. Select Resend verification email.
  3. Once you receive the email, you must verify your domain registration with the steps in this article.
