What I understand is that Google API keys are Domain specific. You need to regenerate API keys for your new domain for them to work properly.

What error are you getting in browser console?

Thanks, Chetan

You have few options

  1. If you are using kentico's Google map web part to show the maps then you can provide keys in the web part configuration. Provision is there.

  2. If you are using JS and HTML to do this then you can add script tag provided by Google maps API in the head tag using Head HTML WEB PART in the appropriate template.

Which approach are you using?
