Comparing with Google Apps for Business

The first thing you would need to set the same up is a Domain name. You can always get them from any domain providers like GoDaddy, Network Solutions, 1&1.co.uk. You can also register a domain with Google itself, but they only support the following High Level domains .com, .net, .org, .biz & .info.
You can register an .ie domain with Domain Registry (IEDR). But you cannot host the DNS with them, and you will have to host them with your website hosting providers. For ease of setting you, you can always use a Hosting Provider who you want to host your website register the domain for you as well.
Google Apps allows you to set up website as well, but they aren’t very easily configured and sometimes look messy. So it’s better to host them with a Hosting provider who would have a few easy to use website templates.

  • To Get started go to https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain/new?hl=en and enter your Domain Name and press next.
  • On the next page fill in the details for the Administrator.
  • Set up administrator login details on the next page
  • Then you would need to verify that you are the owner of the domain. For that you can create a TXT entry on your DNS server. The other option is to upload a file with a specific name on your Website Hosting server. You can also set up a META tag on your website home page to verify the same.

To get your emails delivered to Google Apps, you will need to set up your MX records to point to the Google Server. The MX records are:
