This document describes how to remove subdomains of apps.cloud-platform.service.justice.gov.uk and cloud-platform.service.justice.gov.uk from google search results using Google Search Console.

By default, all domains are crawled by google unless the domain has taken one of the measures mentioned in Block Search indexing to block the urls from indexing and not appear in google search results.

If any of the subdomains were mistakenly added by Google Crawler, follow the below steps to remove the indexing which will in turn not appear in google search results.
