Are you looking for ways to get rid of a domain from Google Workspace for any reason? You can understand how to do it here.

If you wish to get rid of a domain from Google Workspace but wish to keep your Workspace Account, you can know how to do it here. Some people wish to remove a domain from Google Workspace just because they have a secondary domain alias or additional domain. When they no longer use this secondary domain, they wish to remove it from Google Workspace Account. 

Before you know how to remove a domain, you should remember that once removed, your customers will not get any email and other Communications at the domain. 

Now, let us learn how to get rid of a domain from your Google Workspace:

Steps to Remove A Domain from Google Workspace:

  1. The first thing you will have to do is to log in to your Google Admin Console. 
  2. Let us consider that you wish to get rid of a secondary domain. Here are the steps to follow:
    1. Get rid of any groups connected to the domain
    2. Delete any user aliases connected with the domain
    3. From the home page of the Admin Console go to users.
    4. Now, you will have to spot users with the domain you wish to remove. You can spot users by:
      1. Using the Directory API, where you can find a list of users by giving the domain name
      2. Otherwise, you can download the list of users and sort or file by the domain that you can find in the email address of the users.
    5. Now, give a different name to any users that are connected with the domain you wish to remove. When you have a large number of users, you can go for bulk renaming as against renaming one by one.
    6. Get rid of any alias or test domains connected with the domain.
    7. In the admin console, get to the menu and then Account followed by Domains and then Manage Domains.
    8. Under the Manage Domains section, look for the domain that you wish to remove and click the “Remove” option.

Also, remember that when you get rid of a domain permanently, it will permanently get rid of any sites developed in that domain. So, before you remove a domain, copy any sites that you wish to save to yet another Google domain you own. To do this, you can sign in as a user in the other domain.
