I can help you ensure a smooth process and maintain your domain’s verification with Google services.
The Problem: Domain Migration
If your domain name underwent a domain migration from Google Domains to Squarespace Domains, there are things to make sure off. While this transition promises benefits, there’s a critical aspect to consider: verification. Specifically, the domain’s verification with Google services, including Search Console, may be at risk.
Why Verification Matters
- Search Console: Verification allows you to access valuable data about your website’s performance, search queries, and indexing status. Losing verification means missing out on crucial insights.
Our Solution: Retaining Verification
As the owner of a domain name, here’s what you need to know:
- Verification Window: Starting from 14 days after the migration, your domain may lose verification. We want to prevent that!
- DNS Token Verification: To remain verified with Google services, follow these steps:
- Stay Informed: Your domain hasn’t migrated yet. Expect an email from Squarespace once the process is complete. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, reach out to Google Domains support.
- Use DNS token verification: This method ensures that even after migration, you’ll maintain access to Search Console properties on yourdomain.com.
