Another insanely useful tool from Google is their Business Email Solution known as Google Workspace. With this add-on, you can escape the headaches of using free web-based email services and opt for an all-inclusive Business email; and what's even better, Google Workspace is more than just email! With cloud-based spreadsheets and document editing tools, you can quickly collaborate on projects with stakeholders or meet with clients in real-time over the Hangouts network.

There are many impressive features of Google Workspace you can review online. For now, continue reading to learn more about adding this feature to your account. Included in this article, we will discuss what you need to do to Get Started with Google Workspace, as well as where to go to access your Google Workspace accounts, costs, requirements, and troubleshooting.

Note: If you do not yet own a domain name, you will first need to purchase one to begin using Google Workspace. We recommend this option since you receive one (1) free year of domain registration with an upgraded account.

  1. Below you will find the steps to sign up for Google Workspace through Email or App Market Tab.
    1. Click the Email tab from the left-hand menu of your control panel once you’ve logged in to your HostGator account.
    2. Click on App Market from the left-hand menu, selecting the Get Google Workspace Email option.

    Note: The Total Yearly Cost of Subscription bills at $72/year. Since this is a third-party product, there may be a delay in your order process. Once setup is complete, your first account becomes the admin account. You can change this at any time from your admin console.


Accessing Your Google Email:

  1. To log into Google and access your email, click the Read Email button from the Manage Google Workspace details.
