How to setup your domain to use Google Apps (Google Mail)

Google Apps™ is a suite of Google® applications that brings together essential services to help your business. This is a hosted service that lets businesses, schools, and institutions use a variety of Google products -- including Email, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Talk -- on a unique domain (e.g., www.yourcompany.com).

For instance, if you own the domain example.com and you sign up for Google Apps services, everyone at your organization will get:

  1. A custom email address (user@example.com)
  2. Tools for word processing
  3. Spreadsheets and presentations
  4. A shared calendaring system
  5. And much, much more!

The following steps must be completed with Google before continuing:

    1. Signup for a Google Apps account at: https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain/new
    2. Verify ownership on the main Google Apps Dashboard at: http://google.com/a/your_domain.com (replace your_domain.com with your actual domain name)

How to configure your domain to use Google Apps on our server:

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Under the "Mail" section, click the "Remote MX Wizard" icon
  3. Select the domain you want to setup with Google Apps and click "Next Step"
  4. Select the additional services you want to configure with Google Apps
  5. Click "Continue & configure domain with Google Apps"
