Resources for G Suite

Apps Admins LogoGetting Your Business Started with G Suite

Start a Free Trial of G Suite Business

Coolhead Tech has been the Google Admins' choice for information, resources and support for G Suite and Google Apps since 2008. Learn from our experience.

You'll need a domain name to set up G Suite and you'll need to login to your domain host (eg GoDaddy, Enom, Netsol.)  Confirm your access and how to get to Advanced DNS before starting your free trial.

Head to https://www.coolheadtech.com/gsuite-free-trial and enter your domain name to start the free trial.   Note that you should use your domain name, as registered with your host in step 1.   If your website is  www.coolheadtech.com you would us coolheadtech.com.

After you initiate a free trial of G Suite business you'll receive two emails.  One from Apps Admins and one from Google.  The Apps Admins email has your account information, the admin login information to G Suite.  Click the link in email or open a new tab and head to admin.google.com to sign in, accept Google's Terms of Service and continue to verification.

  1. In G Suite Admin Console head to the Setup Wizard or Domains App

  2. On the Verify your domain page, you should see the Log in to your domain host’s website section. If you don’t, click Choose a different method and select Add a domain host record (TXT or CNAME).

  3. Check the following boxes:

    • I have successfully logged in.

    • I have opened the control panel for my domain.

  4. In the Create a new TXT record section, copy the contents of the Value/Answer/Destination field. This is your verification record.

    The TXT Value/Answer/Destination record is shown.

  5. Copy these values at your domain host's advanced DNS section.

After you've completed these steps, allow a few minutes for the systems to update and information to propagate.  Return to the verification page inside G Suite Admin Console and click Verify.

You'll need to add/modify more DNS (Domain Name Service) records to start having mail delivered to your new G Suite business accounts.  If you currently use the domain to send and receive email you'll want to coordinate a time for users to change and allow the opportunity to migrate messages from your existing mail server.

At a minimum there are 2 types of DNS records you are editing/creating for email routing.   MX Records tell other servers where to deliver mail for your domain.  An SPF entry is a TXT Record that detects forging sender addresses during the delivery of the email.
