Some companies need to use a domain alias for various reasons. Some instances may be two companies merging or a company name change. This guide will help you set up either a secondary domain or a domain alias on your Google G Suite account. You may want to first decide which you want to set up.
Automatically create an alias for every user in the primary domain, giving them an alternate email address at the new domain.
Manage users and groups at an associated domain that you own, independently of the primary domain.
Once this is decided, you will need access to the DNS in order to verify that you own the domain by simply adding a TXT record with your host.
- Log into the control panel and click on the icon “Domains”
- Click on “Add/remove domains”
- Click on the button on the top that says “Add a domain or a domain alias”
- On the next pop up, choose the alias option or the secondary domain. Enter the domain in the white box and click on “Continue and verify domain Ownership”
- It may take some time for the TXT record to propagate but at this point you will then be able to set up users and groups if you chose secondary domain and will automatically be applied if you chose domain alias.
*Note: You will need to change the MX records with the domain host in order for mail to flow to these addresses.
