About G Suite with Google Domains
With G Suite, you can create custom email addresses for your domain, such as email@example.com, add email aliases, and manage all your mail from one inbox.
Each user subscription includes 30 GB of online storage, calendar, video conferencing, docs, and more tools for your business. If you need help, the G Suite Support team is available 24/7.
Pricing: G Suite is $5 per user per month. You can cancel at any time.
Sign up takes just a few minutes, and you can start using your new professional email address immediately.
In your Google Domains account:
- Go to My domains in the navbar and then click the domain to sign up for G Suite.
- Click the Email tab.
- Under Custom email with G Suite, click Get Started.
Follow the steps to create your custom email address and G Suite account and set up billing. You are the administrator for your G Suite account so you can add users and manage service settings.
After you sign up, check out the Quick Start page to start using your new email. Also, you can learn about using your online doc, storage, video conferencing, and other G Suite services.
Both Google Domains and G Suite offer email addresses that use your domain name. But G Suite gives you a dedicated inbox for your work email address, plus access to the business versions of G Suite like Drive, Docs, Calendar, Forms and Sites.
Email forwarding in Google Domains
- Up to 100 email aliases per domain
These email aliases forward messages to another email address you own. For example, you create the alias firstname.lastname@example.org that forwards to your personal Gmail account.
G Suite email
- Professional email address and mailbox for each user
- Up to 30 email aliases per user (additional email addresses such as email@example.com)
- Email lists for your business
- Domains aliases -- add another domain you own for free
Also, each G Suite user account includes Google Drive (file storage and sharing) with 30GB, Hangouts (video meetings and chat), Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Calendar and Sites.
How G Suite email can work
Anne, the owner of KitBeat.com, creates her G Suite account, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Professional email: To post on her website, she creates the addresses email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org -- at no additional cost.
With G Suite, she can add other domains she owns. When she adds her business domain, MixxBeat.net, she automatically gets the address, email@example.com, and at no additional cost.
She can send, receive, and manage messages from all of those addresses in her firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox.
Team communications: Anne creates the mailing list, email@example.com so her customers’ requests go directly to all of KitBeat’s support staff. As the business grows and changes, she can add new user accounts to G Suite.
You get the same G Suite features, services and 24/7 support whether you purchase G Suite through Google Domains or through the G Suite website.
Here are few differences in account management if you purchase G Suite through Google Domains:
- Automatic setup of Gmail, and email protection features like DKIM and SPF, for your domain.
- Some administrative tasks, such as adding or delete users, are managed through your Google Domains control panel (rather than the G Suite Admin console).
Billing and Upgrades
- Billing is monthly. No annual option is available.
- Payment is managed through your Google Payments account.
- Upgrading to G Suite Unlimited is not available at this time.
You can add up to 20 domains as domain aliases to your G Suite account. When you add a domain as an alias to your primary domain (the domain you first signed up for G Suite), all of your users automatically have email addresses at both domains. For detailed information, see domain aliases.
