I purchased a domain name last year from Google, and I would like this to be the domain name for my website. It is not allowing me to choose this option. How can I have this be my domain name vs. the "" name?

Hi Dianne,


Can you explain this a little more?


When you say it is not allowing you... what is "it?" 


Also, when you bought the first domain name (from Google), did you buy it for more than one year or renew it? Domain names are only valid for the length they are purchased for... which is better referenced as being leased. 


And when you say your what this to be your domain name for your website, did you buy another domain name or hosting or...?


Do you see your domain(s) listed here:


Kind Regards,
