How to Get Google Apps Email on Your Domain with Just a Few Steps
NameCheap is pleased to announce that we have a one-click Google Apps Email hosting for domains that are powered by us. This functionality is available to those who use Namecheap’s nameservers. If you use Namecheap hosting (shared/business/reseller), we have a one-click option in your cPanel account. If you have your own hosting, you would need to contact your support for assistance.
To take advantage of this special feature, log into your NameCheap and click on the account you wish to apply this setting to. Once you are there, navigate to the “All Host Records” as seen below.
The next step is easy: choose the option “Automatically set MX records necessary for Google Apps Email” and you’re good to go!
Keep in mind that this option only is available for domains that are pointed to NameCheap’s default nameservers. Also, email might not work immediately; DNS usually takes time to propagate, which can take anywhere from 24-48 hours.
Awesome! Thanks for pointing that out, this will be a feature I will surely use. 🙂
I’ve been trying this for so long, I hope this works!
Thanks, very much!
I am bit confused,I am not using your default nameservers then how can i use google apps?
I am using cPanel,Should i have to setup there MX records?
Hi Adnan, this is for non-hosted domains (e.g. using our own nameservers). We’ll update the post accordingly.
Hey Tamar, can you use this if MX records point to Namecheap but A records point elsewhere?
Ben, it’s actually dependent upon nameservers. If you use Namecheap’s nameservers, this will work. If you don’t, then you need to do this on your web host.
Thanks a lot..Namecheap Rocks!!
Here’s a tutorial you can use on how to set them up if you’re not using Namecheaps custom domains.

Thanks for tutorial.
Do I need to purchase an email address and email hosting in order to use this or can I do that through my google apps subscription?
Do I need to purchase an email hosting through namecheap or can I just use my google apps subscription?
No Jamie, this is for anyone using Google Apps. It’s not Namecheap email. 🙂
