Please add DNS support of Acme manager for use with google domains. I'm using their DDNS feature and can't find them in the list of DNS methods for adding Acme certificate

The latest version of the script (not the GUI package) has some support but it isn't like the other integrated scripts. It requires separate use of the gcloud CLI command (available via the net/google-cloud-sdk port) to setup credentials outside of the GUI. I'm not sure how viable it will be to add to the GUI, but I'll check into it.

Adding a request for this myself.

I would also like to see Google Domains added into the list of supported validation methods.

Google Domains currently does not have any API that allows DNS records to be managed programmatically, so no ACME clients can do "DNS Verification" with Google Domains until Google chooses to add that feature. The only options are to use "HTTP verification" or move your DNS to a different provider that supports ACME, such as Cloudflare.

The question is how is certbot doing it using a plugin called dns-google

It is a python plugin
