This in-depth article will walk you through the simple steps to set up Gmail for your custom domain email.
So, without further ado, here we go!
Create an email address for your domain name
If you’ve always wanted to use a different email address than the standard one for your company, now is the time to do it. You can easily set up a new email account with a custom domain name. It will allow you to use a more personal email address, such as “[email protected],” instead of “[email protected]”
Configure DNS records
Once you’ve chosen a domain name, you need to make sure Google knows where to send email for that domain. There are two ways to do this:
1) Add an MX record to point to your server.
2) Add a Cname record to point to your existing website.
Configure web server settings
If you use aHostcano web hostingservice, you don’t need to check DNS services. You can also add an MX record to point directly to your server. This will ensure that all emails sent to your domain will go directly to your server.
