Google Domains - Automatic TLS Certificates

Google Domains Forwarding with SSL

Google Domains supports connections to Google My Business Website and HTTP redirects to forward a domain to any URL. I added automatic provisioning and serving of TLS certificates for these connections using Google-internal services.


  • SSL certificates seamlessly created and renewed for users
  • Automatically created and served for connections to Google My Business Website and domain forwarding.
  • Enabled automatically for HSTS-preloaded TLDs, like .APP and .DEV.


  • Launched prior to large .APP launch. Allowed web forwarding to function for users where most other registrars had broken functionality.
  • Tech lead for complex project in collaboration with two other Google teams - internal certificates team, and Google My Business Website.
