Google Workspace (formerly G Suite)
Set Up Your Business Email in 3 Easy Steps
Apply for Google Workspace
Access the Google official website via the link here to apply for a 14-day trial (account is limited to 10 users).
※ Please note that you must own a domain (e.g. a .com domain name) to apply for Google Workspace. If you do not have a domain, you can purchase one from the following domain registrars:
Verify Domain Ownership
When you sign up you must verify your domain (e.g. .com) to prove ownership before you can use Google Workspace, including the Gmail service.
- Add a TXT or CNAME record in your domain panel (recommended)
- Upload the HTML file to your website
- Add a meta tag to your website
Change MX Records
After domain ownership is verified, the MX records must be changed.
It may take 24 to 48 hours for MX records to show up in the system.
|Host||Time to Live (TTL*)||Type||Priority||Destination|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||1||ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||5||ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||5||ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||10||ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
|Blank or @||3600||MX||10||ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM|
Please refer to Set up MX Records for Google Workspace
To prevent others from spoofing your domain address to send email, resulting in your organization’s email being classified as spam or blocked altogether, it is recommended that you add an SPF record to the domain panel. Recipients can use the SPF records to determine whether the email was sent from an authorized mail server or not.
Create a TXT record with the following value: v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all
Please refer to About SPF Record more information.
After the set-up is complete, you can start using Google Workspace.
