How to Set Up Google Apps on your Domain


In order set up Google Apps on your domain, you must first disable the email service for that domain.

You can do this from the Websites/SSL (1) tab in your Hosting Panel, then clicking on Settings for the domain in question. In the pop-up menu, select E-mail (2) and check the box to turn off e-mail for this domain (3). Once you're ready, Save Changes (4) to proceed.

How to disable email

Important: This will remove any email accounts associated with that domain (hosted with us) along with any email messages in them!

When the email service of your chosen domain has been disabled, you can proceed to make changes to DNS. First, you will need to add the MX Records for Google in the Edit DNS menu of your Dashboard.

The MX records should have the following values and priorities:

 

  VALUE                                         PRIORITY

ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.                    1

ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.           5

ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.           5

ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.          10

ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.          10

 

Note: You must add all 5 of these MX record values into the DNS Zone Editor.

In order to add these MX records, you will need to go to the Edit DNS (1) tab on the left-hand side of your Dashboard. From the Simple DNS Zone Editor menu, select the domain (2) on which you want to set up Google APPS and then click on Add New Record (3);
