DNS management requirement
How do I configure my existing domain to work with Google services?
If you signed up for a G Suite account with an existing domain name, you'll need to be able to make changes to your DNS settings to activate G Suite. The three main changes are:
- Verifying your domain—some verification methods require updating your domain's DNS settings. Learn more.
- Modifying your domain's MX records to point to Google's servers to activate your email service. Learn more
- Creating custom web addresses for G Suite services by modifying your CNAME records. Learn more
Note: You'll be able to make changes to your domain's DNS settings only if you're a domain administrator.
I purchased my domain name through Google. Am I required to make changes to my DNS settings?
If you purchased your domain from one of our registration partners while signing up for G Suite, your domain is automatically configured to work with Google services. In this case, you don't have to make any changes to your domain's DNS settings.
If you'd like to use G Suite but don't have an email address issued by your work or school, you may also be interested in G Suite with domain registration.
