Use Gmail for your business

If you want to use Gmail for your business, a G Suite account might be better for you than a personal Google Account. G Suite starts at $6 USD per user, per month, and includes:

  • A professional, ad-free Gmail account using your company’s domain name, such as susan@example.com.

  • Ownership of employee accounts so you're always in control of your company’s accounts, emails and files.

  • 24/7 phone, email and chat support from a real person.

  • Increased Gmail and Google Drive storage.

  • Mobile device management tools to keep your data secure, such as the ability to remotely wipe lost devices.

  • Advanced security and administrative controls.
