We’ve all felt it, that awkward moment when you get an email with professional content but from a personal email account. The good news is, we are going to guide you towards setting up G Suite for your business.
To start using G Suite for your business or organization, the first step is to sign up. Before signing up, have your domain name, your user name, and an email address that is not in your G Suite domain, handy. If you already have an account, go to admin.google.com to sign in.
Once you have signed in or created an account for the size and type of organization that you have, you will need to:
- Verify your domain
- Set up domain MX records
- Add Users/Team Members
Let’s look at these in more detail.
Verifying Your Domain
Sign into the admin console of G Suite, and click on Start Setup or Verify Domain, then Begin Verification, and Select your domain registrar or provider. Go to the section, Create a new TXT record and copy your verification record located in the Value/Answer/Destination field.
Sign into your hosting site 10web.io to add your verification record. This will assure that the domain belongs to you.
- On the left of your 10Web dashboard, click on Hosting Services then on Domains.
- Click Manage DNS.
- Then click on the drop down menu and choose TXT for the type of record you will be adding.
- Enter the name of your subdomain and paste the G Suite verification record into TXT Content and click Add DNS Record.
- Return to your G Suite setup and click Verify then click Continue.
Setting Up MX Records For G Suite
Once your domain is verified, it’s time to direct your email flow. This is done by configuring your MX Record to point to the google mail servers.
- Go to, Hosting Services then to Domains.
- Click Manage DNS.
- Click the drop down menu for type and choose MX to start adding the records.
- Leave the Name field empty and click the field under Server to configure the MX records.
- Copy the MX Records and paste them into the box field.
- When adding the priority level, make sure to leave a space between the priority number and the name.
- When done, click Save then click the Add DNS Record button.
It usually takes about 6 hours until you can start sending and receiving emails. It could however, take up to 72 hours to start receiving emails.
