Sign up for team-managed G Suite

Google now offers a way to sign up for G Suite for your team. When you sign up your team using your existing business email address, you and your team gain access to Google Drive, Google Hangouts, tools for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, and dozens of other Google services.

When you sign up, we'll send a verification link to the domain email address you used to create the account. Click the link in that email to verify that you own this address. Once you start using your account, we may send you additional verification emails to make sure that you still have access to that address. If you don't verify your address, you may not be able to access certain Google products or features.

As the team admin, you'll be able to:

Problems signing up

If you didn't receive your verification link

If you didn't receive our verification link, try these troubleshooting tips:

  1. Check your Spam or Bulk Mail folders. It's possible that the account verification email we tried to send you was caught by a spam or bulk mail filter in your email system. If you don't find the email in these folders, add to your address book or the list of allowed addresses on your filter, and then request a new verification email.
  2. Request a new verification email. To send yourself a new verification email, sign in to the Google Accounts homepage. If your account isn't already verified, you'll see an 'Account verification needed' message that includes a link to resend the verification email.
  3. Confirm that the account was successfully created. If you're unable to sign in to the Google Accounts homepage, request a new verification email; it's possible that you entered a typo in your email address when you created your account. In this case, simply create your Google Account again with the same email address. If you see a message that a user already exists with that address, you'll know for sure that the account has already been created.
If you don’t have a business email address
G Suite lets you work together with anyone at the same domain, so you’ll need to use an email address like you@yourcompany to sign up. If you don’t have an existing business email address, you can purchase a new professional domain when you sign up.
If your organization is already using G Suite

If you see the error message "Your organization has already set up Google", your company may already be using G Suite. If so, contact your administrator or IT staff to request a G Suite account. If you’re that person, you can learn more about managing G Suite or contact us for help.

If your country has restricted access

Google restricts access to some of its business services in certain countries and regions, such as Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. If you try to sign up for these services from these countries or regions, you’ll see this error message: “G Suite does not currently support domains in this country.”

Certain Google services, such as Gmail, might be available in these countries or regions for personal use, but not for business use.

If you already have a Gmail account

You’ll see the following error message when you try to sign up: “You already have a Gmail account.”

Your Gmail account already gives you access to Google Drive, Docs, Hangouts, and other apps. If you want to use the version of these apps designed for work, you need to sign up with an existing email address like you@yourcompany. If you don’t have an existing business email address, you can purchase a new professional domain to use G Suite.

If you'd like to move data in between your old Google Account and your new G Suite account, see Download your data.
