FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions about using Google Workspace with Google Domains:

What is Google Workspace?

On October 6, 2020, we introduced a new brand, product experience, and set of offerings to better equip our customers for the future of work. As part of these changes, G Suite is now Google Workspace. Whether you’re at home, at work, or in the classroom, Google Workspace is the best way to create, communicate, and collaborate. 

How does this affect my current G Suite subscription?

Your current G Suite subscriptions and all related services will continue to function as they do today. We’ll be in touch with you over the coming months to identify your transition path to one of the new offerings. You don't need to take any action today.

Can I keep my current G Suite subscription?

You can keep your G Suite subscription until the time is right to transition. We'll be in touch with you in the coming months to transition to the new Google Workspace editions.

Can I still sign up for G Suite Basic/Business?

G Suite Basic and G Suite Business are not available for new sign ups. If you have G Suite Basic, your subscription and all related services will continue to function as they do today, until it’s time to transition to a new offering. We’ll be in touch over the coming months to identify your transition path.

Can I continue to add users to my G Suite subscription?

What's different about purchasing Google Workspace through Google Domains?

If you purchase Google Workspace through Google Domains, there are some differences in account management:
  • Setup
  • Google Domains automatically sets up Gmail and email protection features, like DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF).
  • You do some administrative tasks, such as adding or removing users, in your Google Domains control panel.
  • Billing
  • Google Domains bills you monthly. 
  • You manage payment through your Google Payments Account.

How many domains can I add to Google Workspace?

You can add up to 20 domains as domain aliases to your Google Workspace Account. All your users automatically get email addresses at both domains.

Set or reset passwords for Google Workspace users

  1. Sign in to Google Domains.
  2. Go to the “Email” tab.
  3. Under "Add or remove people from Google Workspace," on the account where you'd like to reset the password, click Edit  and then Reset Password.
  4. To send the temporary password, enter an email address. Use a different email address than the user’s Google Workspace email address.
  5. Click Send reset email.
  6. To reset the password, use the instructions in your email.
  7. To change your password, sign in.

If you still can’t reset your password, or to learn more about Google Hedgehog user’s management, go to Manage or delete Google Workspace.

I already have a Google Workspace Account. Do I need to purchase another Google Workspace Account through Google Domains?

How do I manage Google Workspace if I subscribed from the Google Workspace website?

To manage your Google Workspace services, add users, change your Google Workspace billing details, or other administrative tasks, sign in to the Google Admin console.
What actions do I take if I transferred my domain to Google Domains from another domain host?
If you’re a Google Workspace customer who transferred your domain from another domain host to Google Domains, make sure you set up your email and custom URLs in Google Domains.
If you mapped a website to your domain, add Canonical Name (CNAME) records in Google Domains.
