Domain name change with existing Grants Account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

we are doing we website relaunch and at the same time we will change the domain name. In the Google Grants guidelines, it says that we can only use Google Grants for one domain name, the one the account was registered with.

Do we have to close down our exsiting Grants Account and register a new one with the new domain name or can we just deactivate all ads, do the relaunch and create ads for the new website with its new domain?

The old domain will be redirected by a 301 to the new domain.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Plastikschnitzer

No, you do not have to close your Ad Grant account.

 

In certain cases, you may be able to promote multiple domains in a Google Ad Grants account after your original Grants application has been approved.

To request adding new domains to your account, fill out the Additional Website Domain Request form. Your request should be reviewed within 5 business days.

 

Reasons you can request an exception

You can request an exception to the website policy if you have other websites that:

  • Promote ongoing projects with similar content owned by your organization
  • Contain the same information as your main domain but for a different language
  • Replace your original website because you've changed your domain since applying for Ad Grants

We run some grants campaigns - i would suggest contacting grants directly rather than using forum as there are a lot of rules around how it all works
