Choose your domain type

When you sign up for Chrome Browser Cloud Management (CBCM), you can manage Chrome browsers using a domain-verified account or a provided-domain account. 

For domain-verified accounts, you use your own business domain name. For provided-domain accounts, Google provides the account.

Domain-verified accounts 

If you sign up using domain-verified accounts, you can use your own business domain for your Google Admin console account. You have 14 days to verify your business domain

Note: We reserve the right to terminate an account if the domain verification process is not completed after 14 days.

Other services associated with the account will also be terminated.

With a domain-verified account you can:

  • Purchase additional upgrades or products, such as Google Workspace, Chrome Enterprise Upgrade for Chrome OS devices, or Cloud Identity for your organization.
  • Create up to 10 users with the CBCM free offering.
  • Create and manage users and groups by organizational unit and apply group-based policies that allow for more customization in your organization.
