Wix: Protect your domain

Important! Use this article to set up a new domain with Google Workspace. If you've been using Google Workspace with your domain for more than 3 days, your domain is already verified.

Why verify?

We don't want someone else to use your domain to sign up for Google Workspace. You can help us keep your domain safe by showing us that you are the owner.

How do I verify?

When you sign up for your Google service, you get a verification record that you copy and paste into your domain settings (usually stored with your domain host).

Need help with verification? Contact Google Workspace support for fast, personalized help that’s included with your Google Workspace subscription. Google Cloud support is available for customers with Silver, Gold, or Platinum support levels.

Step 1: Get your verification code from Google Workspace
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. Click Continue to verify your domain with a TXT record.

  3. Look for your verification code in the setup tool and click Copy.

    Shows the Copy button next to the Google Workspace verification code.

Step 2: Go to your DNS records at Wix

    Note: Sign in with the account you used to buy your domain. If you don’t know your login information, recover your Wix account or contact Wix Support.

  2. Next to the domain you're setting up today, click More "".

Step 3: Add your verification code to Wix

    The Add Record option is shown on the TXT (Text records table.

  2. Add your verification code:
    • Leave the Host Name field empty.
    • For Value, paste the verification code that you copied in step 1.
    • For TTL, leave the default value of 1 Hour.
    The fields for the TXT verification record are completed.
  3. Click Save.
Step 4: Tell Google Workspace to check your verification code

Important! It might take additional time for your registrar to publish the verification code. If the Google Workspace setup tool gives you an error message, wait an hour before you try again.

In extreme cases, it can take up to 48 hours for your registrar to publish your verification code.
