Transfer your Google Domains to Namecheap today
Google Domains is shutting down its domain services and selling them to Squarespace. The news has left many customers exploring alternative, and more affordable, options for domain registration.
As Andrew Allemann wrote in Domain Name Wire,
“Squarespace is an expensive domain registrar. It charges $20 per year minimum including .com, much higher than Google’s $12 for most domains.”

With 23 years in the industry and over 15 million domains under management, we understand the intricacies of the domain business and are committed to providing you with a seamless transition and competitive pricing.

What if your domain doesn’t expire for a while?
You might think the best time to transfer your domain is close to its expiration date. However, that’s not the case. In reality, domain transfers can be initiated at any point during the lifecycle of your domain, regardless of how far off the expiration date might be. There’s no need to wait until the last minute.
Why is this the case? For most top-level domains, or TLDs (the part after the dot), when you transfer your domain, the renewal price you pay as part of the transfer process gets added to your current expiration date, not the date when the transfer takes place. This essentially extends the life of your domain by another year from its current expiration date.
For example, let’s say your domain is set to expire on December 31, 2023, and you decide to transfer it on June 30, 2023. Upon successful completion of the transfer, your new expiration date would be December 31, 2024, not June 30, 2024.
So, if your domain doesn’t expire for a while, there’s no need to delay the transfer. Moving your domain earlier provides you with the benefit of enjoying the services of your new domain registrar without losing any of the time you’ve already paid for with your current registrar.
