Note: This service is no longer free from Google. You must have a Google business account and pay whatever current fees are for that account.

To add a domain to your organization’s Google account:

Sign in to the Google Admin console.

Click Add a domain.

Enter the name of the domain to add to your account.

Click Continue and verify domain ownership.

Choose the Meta Tag verification method and follow the instructions.

Download, install and follow the directions for the following plugin. If you are not sure of this step, obtain the Meta Tag information in the next step and open a support ticket and we will install and configure the plugin for you.
Google Site Verification Plugin

Click Verify and continue to setup email delivery.

Update the domain’s MX records to route mail to Google’s mail servers. If your domain name is registered with us, simply open a support ticket and we will update the DNS record for you. This step can take up to 72 hours to become visible on the internet.

Click I have completed these steps.

View the status of your domain verification on the Domains page in your Admin console. Immediately after you complete the steps above, the status should read “Updating.” When your ownership is verified, the status becomes “Active.” For domain aliases, it can take up to 24 hours after verification for all users to receive their alias email addresses.
