If you can’t find instructions for your domain host, use these general steps.
Note: If people already have email with your domain (such as firstname.lastname@example.org), create their user accounts in the Google Admin console before you set up your MX records. That way, they’ll continue to receive email.
- Sign in to your domain’s account at your domain host.
Need help? Contact your domain host’s Support team. Domain hosts are experts with MX records, and setup is a common task.
- Go to the section where you can update your domain’s MX records. It might be called something like “DNS Management,” “Mail Settings,” or “Advanced Settings.”
- Delete any existing MX records.
If you can’t delete the existing records, change their priority number to 20 or higher.
- Add new MX records for the Google mail servers.
If your domain host limits the number of MX records, just add the first 2 records in this table.
