User Case


I linked a domain hosted by GoDaddy to a workspace profile, but mistakenly transferred it to the incorrect profile. I'd like to inquire if it's feasible to move the domain from workspace profile A to workspace profile B and exclusively use it in profile B, as profile A is no longer required.

Yes, you can make Google Workspace transfer domain to another account via Google Domains. Google Domains is a domain registration service provided by Google. It allows users to search for, register, and manage domain names for websites. Here are some key features and purposes of Google Domains:

  • Domain Registration: Google Domains enables users to search for available domain names and register them for use with websites or other online services.
  • Domain Management: You can manage your registered domains through the Google Domains interface. This includes configuring domain settings, updating contact information, and renewing domain registrations.
  • Domain Forwarding: Google Domains allows you to set up domain forwarding, which redirects traffic from one domain to another. This is useful if you have multiple domain names and want them to all point to the same website.
  • Email Forwarding: You can set up email forwarding for your domain, directing emails sent to their domain-specific email addresses to other email accounts.
  • DNS Management: Google Domains provides Domain Name System (DNS) management, allowing users to configure DNS settings such as A records, CNAME records, and MX records. This is important for controlling how the domain is associated with specific servers, websites, or email services.
