Verify a domain for Google Services


Verify your domain on Google using a TXT record is an important step to confirm the ownership of your domain in tools like Google Search Console or Google Workspace. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Add Property in Google Search Console

  1. Access Google Search Console:
  2. Add Property:
    • Click the “Add property” button.
    • Select the type of property. For domain verification, select “Domain” and not “URL Prefix”. You will enter your domain without “http://” or “https://”.
  3. Obtain the Verification Code:
    • Google will provide you with a TXT record that you need to add to your domain’s settings in your domain provider (such as GoDaddy, Namecheap, etc.).


Step 2: Add the TXT Record in the Domain Provider

  1. Access Your Domain Provider

  2. Access the menu Settings > Domains > Select your domain

  3. Add a New TXT Record:

    • Add a new record and select “TXT” as the record type.
    • In the “Host” field, leave it blank.
    • In the “Value” field, paste the TXT code provided by Google.
    • Click “Add”.

Step 3: Verify the Domain in Google

  1. Return to Google Search Console:
    • Once you have added the TXT record in your domain provider, return to Google Search Console.
  2. Verify:
    • Click “Verify”. Google will look for the TXT record in your DNS settings to confirm domain ownership.

    • Verification can take some time (from a few minutes to 48 hours) depending on DNS propagation.


Additional Tips

  • DNS Propagation: Keep in mind that changes to DNS records can take up to 48 hours to propagate, although it is usually much faster.
