Add a Domain or Domain Alias to G Suite
Your G Suite account will let you manage multiple domains for your business at no additional expense. Alternatively, you can add a domain as an alias of your primary domain, allowing you to send and receive email from multiple domains with minimal configuration.
To add a domain as either an additional domain or as a domain alias, follow the directions below:
- Login to your G Suite admin dashboard.
- At the bottom of your dashboard, click More Controls, then click Domains:
- On the next page click Add/remove domains:
- At the top left corner of the page click the ADD A DOMAIN OR A DOMAIN ALIAS button:
- In the popup, please enter the following options:
- Whether to add the domain as an alias or as a full domain.
- Enter the domain name you wish to add.
- Click CONTINUE AND VERIFY DOMAIN OWNERSHIP to continue.
- Google will ask for your domain provider, please select Other from the drop down menu:
- Google will provide you with the information for creating a TXT record for your domain. You will need to add a record for your domain name with the text Google provides as the data at your DNS host.
If your domain is hosted on a cPanel account, the following article will provide additional information on adding TXT records:
- After creating the TXT record you may click the Verify button to complete the process:
Note: After creating a TXT record, there may be up to 8 hours of propagation before Google can successfully verify ownership of your domain. You can return to this screen at a later time to try again if your TXT record is still propagating.
You can manage domain with G Suite, or receive email at your existing accounts with the new domain if you added it as an alias.
