Setting up Google Workspace (formerly known as G Suite) requires domain name ownership verification. The most convenient way to perform this is to add a DNS record for the respective domain name. You can do this by editing the DNS zone of the domain name in your hosting cPanel.
If you host your domain name with Namecheap but use BasicDNS or PremiumDNS for it, please refer to the corresponding instructions
Verification of the domain name ownership in the hosting cPanel
Now that you have the TXT record value, you can add it to your cPanel account.
Sign in to the Google Admin Console
of your Google Workspace account. If you're doing this the first time, you'll need to accept Google Workspace Terms of Service. Once you're in, click on the Verify Domain
link at the top of the page
or inside the red alert section:
Click on the Next button in the window that appears:
Select the Verify option:
Hit the Continue button:
On the next page there will be a verification record for your domain (it starts with "google-site-verification="
) listed in a special field. Please copy its value:
Simply open your cPanel in your web browser and proceed to the Zone Editor:
If you are not sure how to log in to your Shared Hosting cPanel account,
will help you out.
In the Zone Editor, choose the domain name you wish to add the record for and click on Manage next to it:
Click on Add Record:
Now it’s time to paste in the TXT record that you copied earlier from Google Admin console:
Name: your full domain name
TTL: can be left as it is
Type: should be set to TXT
Record: the full TXT record copied from your Google Admin console
To finish, click on Add Record.
Wait a few minutes for the changes to be accepted. The recommended time to wait is 30 minutes.
After that, please get back to your Google Workspace
account and click on the Verify my domain
button at the very bottom:
Wait until the verification process is finished:
If your settings have been verified, you'll get the following message:
After this, your domain name will be considered successfully verified with Google.
