I would like to change domain registrar from GoDaddy to Google (with Google Apps services). But when I go on https://www.google.com/a/my_domain.com, I have this message:

Sorry, you've reached a login page for a domain that isn't using Google Apps. Please check the web address and try again.

How can I do? Many thanks for your help.

Google is not a registrar. –  SLaks Dec 23 '11 at 14:35
    
@slaks are you sure ? I think you can ask google to register domains for you –  Toby Allen Dec 23 '11 at 15:17
    
@TobyAllen: Yes, but they just send you to an existing registrar. –  SLaks Dec 23 '11 at 15:22
    
GoDaddy is Google's default registrar: support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=59184 –  Joe Dec 23 '11 at 15:51

SLaks is correct, Google is not a registrar, but namecheap.com, hover.com and networksolutions.com are all registrars you could look into transferring for domain to. Here is a blog post on how to transfer from godaddy to namecheap.com: blog.jeffepstein.me

To setup a Google Apps go to https://www.google.com/a to setup your account. There is a little step by step setup that will help you get https://www.google.com/a/my_domain.com working.

I believe you will have to verify that you own the domain you are trying to setup. I just ended up putting a file publicly on my server to verify that I owned it.

Go to https://www.google.com/a and click Begin Free Trial to set up Google Apps for your domain.

You will then need to set various DNS records with your registrar to redirect mail and domain names to Google servers.

There's a boycott of GoDaddy b/c of SOPA. –  dave Dec 23 '11 at 14:38
    
@slaks: when I set, at the top of the form, my domain, Google answer me that: it's not an available domain. –  Zag zag.. Dec 23 '11 at 15:28
    
@Zagzag: You're using the wrong form. –  SLaks Dec 23 '11 at 15:32
    
@Slaks: strange, 'cause I'm on this page google.com/a/cpanel/premier/new?hl=en ; Google answer me "Google Apps does not currently support this domain name.". –  Zag zag.. Dec 23 '11 at 15:54
    
@Zagzag: What domain name? –  SLaks Dec 23 '11 at 16:03
