Speednames.asia (IP Mirror): Set up G Suite MX records

Important: If you purchased your domain from Google when you signed up for G Suite, you don’t need to set up Gmail, you can start using it now. If you’re signed in to the Google Admin console, in the top right, click the App Launcher App Launcher and then Gmail Gmail.

Change your MX records to start using G Suite

You’re now ready to verify your domain (if you haven’t already) and set up Gmail as your business email for your domain (yourcompany.com).

To do this, you need to sign in to your domain host and direct the email for your domain to the G Suite servers. It’s like registering your new address with the post office when you move so that your mail gets delivered to the right place. We’ll walk you through the process.

Before you begin

You should have already:
  • Verified that you own your domain.

    Or, you can verify now with an MX record. We’ll show you how.

  • Created user accounts in G Suite for your team.

    If your team members already use email with your domain, you have to create their user accounts in G Suite before you change the MX record settings for your domain. Otherwise, they won't be able to send or receive messages with their business address in Gmail. You can create accounts for new users later.

If you're in the Setup Wizard shown below, skip to Setup Wizard instructions below.

  • If you still need help changing your MX records, contact G Suite support.
