Why verify?

Before using G Suite, you must verify that you own your domain. A domain is an online address for your business; for example, yourbusiness.com. Verifying your domain prevents unauthorized use of your domain for online services or sending email that appear to come from your business.

If you don’t have a domain, you can buy one when you sign up for G Suite or from a domain registrar. If you buy your domain during sign-up, you don’t need to verify.

How does it work?

In the G Suite Setup Wizard, we give you a unique verification record to add to your domain settings. You need to sign in separately with your domain host to add this record. If you’re not sure who your host is, see identify your domain host.

When we see that the record has been added, your domain ownership is confirmed.
