Sign up for Google Apps - Google Apps Help


Sign up for Google Apps

Google Apps offers a rich suite of business tools that can benefit any size organization. With Google Apps, your users get an email address at your domain, tools for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, a shared calendaring system, web authoring tools, and access to dozens of other Google services.
You can sign up for Google Apps using the domain where you already do business, or purchase a new domain from one of our registration partners. Sign up for the free version of Google Apps, or for additional business-grade features, try Google Apps for Business (free trial available). Educational and nonprofit organizations can qualify for enhanced versions of Google Apps, as well.
Ready to begin?
  1. Go to www.google.com/a, select a version of Google Apps from the Solutions tab, and click thebig blue button to begin. (To purchase a domain from one of our partners, sign up now for the free version of Google Apps. You can then easily upgrade later to Google Apps for Business.)
  2. Follow the instructions that appear to sign up your domain and create your Google Apps account. The instructions are easy to follow, but here are a few things to keep in mind:
    • If you're signing up an existing domain, you'll need to prove to us that you own the domain. This requires that you have access to any one of the following: the domain's DNS settings (managed by your domain host), the server that hosts your domain's web site, or a Google Analytics account for your domain. For details, see verify domain ownership.
    • Be ready to create an email address at your domain where you'll send and receive mail (for example, your_name@your_domain.com). You'll also use this address (along with a password) to log in to your Google Apps account and manage the domain for your users, as well as access your own Google Apps services.
    • You'll also need to provide an alternate email address that's not in your Google Apps domain. Should you forget your Google Apps email address or password and be unable to log in and get your mail, we'll need to reach you at another address that's outside your Google Apps domain, to send you new login credentials. This must be a valid address where you can receive mail both now and while you're using Google Apps.
After you sign up, we'll take you to your Google Apps administrator control panel where you can log in to your new account, verify domain ownership (if you signed up an existing domain), and continue setting up services for your users.
Note that Google doesn't host your domain, so you can't transfer your domain to us—you still need to maintain an account with your domain host. We just enable services for your domain.
