I recently purchased a domain name. We'll call it example.com. The previous owner of the domain had a Google Apps account.

Now that I own the domain, I want to create a Google Apps account so I can point the domain www.example.com to one of my Google App Engine domains. We'll call it application.appspot.com.

Google App Engine won't allow me to add the domain without verifying ownership by creating a Google Apps account or logging into Google Apps, but I don't have access to the old Google Apps account.

We've tried going to this address to take ownership:


We retrieved a new password, but it wouldn't tell us what the login name is. How do you find out the login name?


I tried it out and got the same problem. There doesn't appear to be a way to retrieve the username. I guess you'll have to contact Google about it http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/static.py?page=contacting_support.html

  • Do you think maybe they mean the default admin account, "admin". I tried that. No luck :(
