Point my domain's email service to Google

Connect your domain to your G Suite email through Google by entering the required MX (Mail Exchanger) records. MX records control where email sent to your domain name gets delivered. Existing MX records for other email services (such as Office 365) will need to be deleted so they don't interfere with your G Suite email.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
  3. Under Additional Settings, select Manage DNS.
  4. Select Add under the records table.
  5. Under Type, select MX.

    Note: A domain can only use one email service at a time. For example, you can use Office 365 or Google email on a domain, but you can't use both email services on the same domain.

  6. Fill out the the fields with the information from the table below. Select Save after adding each record, then select Add to add each additional record.
    Host Points to Priority TTL
    @ ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 1 1 Hour
    @ ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 1 Hour
    @ ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 5 1 Hour
    @ ALT3.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 1 Hour
    @ ALT4.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM 10 1 Hour
  7. Don't forget to select Save after adding each record, then select Add to add the additional records.

Please allow up to 48 hours for your changes to take full effect globally.
