How do I set up my domain to work with G Suite using DNS?


To set up Google Apps with your domain, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Bulk Action" button.
  4. Choose "DNS Settings" from the "Bulk Action" list.
  5. On the DNS page, select the "Dynadot DNS" setting from the top drop-down menu.
  6. Under the "Domain Record (required)" field, select "Forward" as the type and enter "http://www.yourdomain.ext" as the "Target Host".
  7. In the next line, select "TXT" as the type and enter your Google verification string in the "Target Host" box.
  8. We will enter one more "TXT" record. This is called an SPF record and will help protect your emails from being classified as spam. For this one, enter "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all" in the "Target Host" box.
  9. Under the "Subdomain Record (optional)" field, enter "www" as the subdomain and "CNAME" as the type, then enter "ghs.google.com" as the "Target Host".
  10. For your second subdomain, enter "calendar" as the subdomain and "CNAME" as the type, then enter "ghs.google.com" as the "Target Host".
  11. For the third subdomain, enter "docs" as the subdomain and "CNAME" as the type, then enter "ghs.google.com" as the "Target Host".
  12. For the last subdomain, enter "mail" as the subdomain and "CNAME" as the type, then enter "ghs.google.com as the "Target Host".
  13. Next, enter the following MX records for email: "aspmx.l.google.com", priority 1, "alt1.aspmx.l.google.com", priority 5, "alt2.aspmx.l.google.com", priority 5, "alt3.aspmx.l.google.com", priority 10, and "alt4.aspmx.l.google.com", priority 10.
  14. Click on the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

Please be aware that it might take some time for your changes to propagate.
