About .APP domains
Charleston Road Registry (d/b/a Google Registry) is the sponsor and backend provider for the .APP extension.
The .APP extension is a secure namespace, so you need HTTPS and an SSL certificate for your website to load on most browsers. Due to these SSL requirements, domain forwarding is not supported for .APP domains. Your .APP registration includes a free credit for our Standard SSL certificate. Once you log in, you will need to redeem and activate your SSL certificate.
Your free Standard SSL certificate is only eligible for support when it’s used with your .APP domain. To ensure continued support, please do not use this free Standard SSL certificate with another domain.
