Verifying a new domain for G Suite (Google Apps)

In order to associate your domain name purchased from Namecheap and pointed to our BasicDNS, BackupDNS (a legacy option), PremiumDNS or FreeDNS with your G Suite account, you need to verify domain ownership first.

This can be done via Google Admin Console. Please note that if your domain is pointed to third-party DNS, host records for ownership verification should be created on the side of your DNS provider.

Please follow the steps below to have the domain verified with G Suite:

1. Sign in to the Google Admin Console of your G Suite account (have no G Suite account?) and proceed by clicking on the Click here link at the top of the page:

2. Click on the Next button in the window that appears:

3. Select the Begin Verification option:

4. Make sure Namecheap is selected as your domain name provider. There will be a verification record for your domain (it starts with "google-site-verification=") listed in a special field. Please copy its value:

5. Once the verification string is copied, go to your Namecheap account > Domain List > Manage > Advanced DNS > Host Records > Add New Record > TXT Record to set it up (more detailed instructions on how to create a TXT record can be found in the

Once done, click Save All Changes:

6. Let's also set up your email on this page. Scroll a bit to the Mail Settings section > select Gmail > Save Changes:

Wait a few minutes for the changes to be accepted. The recommended time to wait is 30 minutes.

7. After that, please get back to your G Suite account and click on the red Verify button to finish the process:

If your settings have been verified, you'll get the "Congratulations" message:

Enjoy the G Suite service!

Configuring G Suite (Goggle Apps) for the domain that was already verified

If you had a domain added to your G Suite (Google Apps) account, but some settings have been changed for it, the only thing you need to do to run the email service again is to set up MX records on your domain's side.

In this case, start the setup from the step where you select Gmail in the Mail Settings section.
