Information you need to sign up


" "

Your business domain name

When you sign up, we'll ask for the primary domain where you plan to use Google services—such as www.example.com (where example.com is your unique name).


I want to bring my own domain

During sign-up, follow the instructions to use your existing domain. It must be a domain name you currently own. In fact, before you start using your domain with Google services, we'll ask you to verify your ownership. To do this, you need to be able to access your domain's DNS settings or the source files on your domain's web server.

You don't need to transfer your domain to us—you can still maintain an account with your domain host. We just enable services for your domain. Who is my domain host?

Using the domain with another Google account? Before signing up the domain for a new account here, you must remove it from the other account.

I need to purchase a domain

If you want to use Google Workspace but don't have a domain name, we can help you purchase one during the sign-up process.

For details, see Purchase a domain from a Google partner.

Your personal user name

This will be the personal username in your domain that you’ll use with Google services, as in yourname@example.com. You’ll use this name (along with a password) to sign in to your Google Workspace account and manage services for your organization. You’ll also use it as your email address (if you’re using Gmail), and with all your other Google Workspace services.


" "

An email address that's not in your domain

If you forget how to sign in to your Google Workspace account, we'll need to be able to reach you at an address that doesn't require accessing your account. This address must be a valid address not in your Google Workspace domain (e.g. your personal Gmail address) where you currently receive mail and will continue doing so while using Google Workspace.


You can also purchase Google Workspace through Google Sales or a local reseller.
