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:

  1. Login to your G Suite admin dashboard.
  2. At the bottom of your dashboard, click More Controls, then click Domains:

  3. On the next page click Add/remove domains:

  4. At the top left corner of the page click the ADD A DOMAIN OR A DOMAIN ALIAS button:

  5. In the popup, please enter the following options:

    1. Whether to add the domain as an alias or as a full domain.
    2. Enter the domain name you wish to add.
    3. Click CONTINUE AND VERIFY DOMAIN OWNERSHIP to continue.
  6. Google will ask for your domain provider, please select Other from the drop down menu:

  7. 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:
  8. 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.
