How to setup a web site domain and email through Google

1. Visit

2. Select ‘Get a new domain’

3. Search for the domain name you desire. Have a few backup ideas in case your first choice is unavailable. I still prefer to use a .com address, however others will work.

4. Add your domain name to your cart.

5. Proceed with your purchase, the domain name is $12 per year as of May 2019 and that includes Privacy Protection and Auto-renew.

6. If you already have a web site, forward your new domain name to the web site. Your current web site provider will have specific instructions available to link your Google domain.

7. If you would like to redirect this new domain to another page (facebook business page, Instagram page, etc.);

  1. Within, click on your domain name.

  2. Select Web site in the left panel.

  3. Select Forward to an existing webpage on the right side.

  4. For the Website URL field to forward to, enter the web site address you would like to forward the domain name to. This could be something like and select the Forward button.

8. Setup your email addresses under your newly acquired domain name;

  1. Within, click on your domain name.

  2. Select Email in the left panel.

  3. DO NOT select G-Suite. This is a more advance service offering which will run $12/month for a business account.

  4. Under Email Forwarding, you will see a text box next to your new domain name. Enter your first email address here. I use basics like hello, Joe {my first name}, contact and payment as standard email addresses.

  5. In the text box to the right of your new domain name, enter your current Gmail address you use. This is your main/personal email address you usually use. Select ADD to the right.

  6. Repeat this process until you’ve entered all of your email addresses. You can add or remove these at any time.

9. Setup your Gmail account to be able to send and receive emails using your new domain name-based email addresses. This will allow you to communicate via email as your business and maintain a professional appearance.

10. Enable 2-Step Verification on your Gmail account;

  1. Login to your Gmail account. This will be your main account you access most, you will be able to access your personal and business emails in one place.

  2. In Gmail, click your username or user icon in the upper right corner to access the user menu. Access your Google Account.
