How Google Workspace works with your domain and email
When you sign up for a Google Workspace account, you can purchase a new domain or use one you already have.
With a domain name, you and your team can use a variety of Google Workspace services, including:
- Drive storage
- Google Docs editors, including docs, spreadsheets, and slides
- App Maker, Keep, Sites, or Jamboard
Verify your domain
To use Google Workspace with a domain, you must show that you own the domain. During signup, we’ll lead you through that process. Learn more about how to verify your domain.
Set up custom email
With Google Workspace, you can get a custom email with your company’s chosen domain name, like susan@yourcompany. A professional email helps build customer trust, and also lets you create group mailing lists, such as sales@yourcompany.
After you sign up for Google Workspace and verify your chosen domain, guided instructions will be provided to set up your custom email. This involves switching your domain’s MX records. Find step-by-step instructions for your domain host.
