- In the Admin Console, on the Verify your domain and set up email page, click the link to open your domain host sign-in page in a new tab.
Note: If the Admin Console doesn’t provide a link to your domain, click here to open the 123-reg.co.uk site in a new tab. The Admin Console remains open in the first tab.
- Click Control Panel at the top of the page to sign in to 123-reg.co.uk.

Note: It can take up to 48 hours for this change to take effect. However, as you go through the next steps in the Setup Wizard, the wizard immediately starts checking for your new TXT record to verify your domain.
Scroll to the bottom of the next page and click Verify my domain.
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.
