If you would like to get up to 10 email accounts (name@somedomain.com), you will need to set up Google Apps to work with your domain.

We will need you to register in Google Apps and send us your details. The email activation requires us to modify your domain DNS settings. This process will take place on the same day of your request and will only take a few minutes from us, but in some cases Google Apps takes to verify these records up to 3 days.

Before you start

This instructions are only for clients with domains purchased through us.

You will need:
1. A paid-for account
2. A domain purchased through us

STEP 5: Talk with our support team

In order for us to activate your email we need you to provide us with your username and password in Google Apps. Do not worry, you can change your password once the process is completed.

The email activation requires us to modify your DNS configuration by adding some TXT and MX records to your domain settings. This process will take place on the same day of your request and will only take a few minutes from us, but in some cases Google Apps takes to verify these records up to 3 days.

This means that when you make​the request for the email activation, having sent your username and password for Google Apps, you'll have to wait up to 3 days before receiving a response with the confirmation from us.
