STEP 3 – Add and Verify Domain Aliases (max of three)

In this step, you need to pre-verify the domains you wanted to add to your Google Apps account. You can have a maximum of three domains in your account (one primary and two secondary domains). You have two options:

  • If you want to remove your current primary domain completely, add and verify two domain aliases.
  • If you want to keep your current primary domain as a secondary domain, add and verify three domain aliases.

NOTE: The good thing is whichever option you choose, all your emails from your current primary domain will remain intact. They WILL NOT BE DELETED.

Go to Domains > Add/remove domains > ADD A DOMAIN ALIAS.

Once you click CONTINUE AND VERIFY DOMAIN OWNERSHIP, you would be redirected to a page with specific instructions on how to verify domain ownership from your registrars dashboard.

Repeat the steps twice or thrice to add two or three domain aliases respectively.

 

STEP 4 – Create a Temporary Super Admin User

At this moment, I need you to understand that I CANNOT post or share with you the rest of the procedure. Nevertheless, I am willing to do it for you FREE OF CHARGE. The final step would only cost you your TRUST and a LITTLE LOVE BY SHARING it with your friends who would need my help. You need to create a temporary super admin user for me so I can start the procedure. I understand that you will feel uncomfortable in sharing a super admin credential with a complete stranger. It is definitely normal – I felt the same way too when I was contacting those people offering paid services. I assure you that you would not loose your account.

Once you have recollected your thoughts and decided to trust me, follow the following steps on creating a temporary super admin user.

Go to Users > Add User.

add_user

Click the newly created user and go to Admin roles and privileges > MANAGE ROLES and check Super Admin and click UPDATE ROLES.

Once the temporary super admin user is set, send an email to my Outlook Mail with the following format:

Leave a comment here to inform me that you have sent me the details. I would need your cooperation and constant communication over the course of procedure. That would determine how fast we are going to complete the primary domain change.

Lastly, just sit back and relax while I work on your account.


UPDATE 1 – June 18, 2017: When sending me an email, please use a common, well-known mail provider like Yahoo!, GMail, or Microsoft. DO NOT USE an account from the Google Apps you want me to work on. This would ensure that I would be able to reach you and inform you about the changes that I made to your account. I’ve already worked with people who used their personal domain, but their MX records or mail server settings are incorrectly set up. When I tried to contact them about their account, my mail bounced. In those cases, I do not have any means to get back to them. Any how, if you are one of those people, I would just like to inform you to use your new primary domain to login. Thanks!


UPDATE 2 – June 24, 2017: Please follow these additional prerequisites:

  • Rename ALL USERS and GROUPS to the current primary domain.
  • Uninstall any marketplace apps in your account by going to (Apps > Marketplace Apps). Do make sure you have your own backup of the data from those third-party applications. That is beyond the scope of Google Apps.

UPDATE 3 – July 5, 2017: I will be away until July 14, 2017. I won’t be able to address your requests while I’m gone. Please refrain from sending me your credentials until then. I do not want your Super Admin passwords lying around in my inbox. There are people who are offering domain change for a fee. If you cannot wait for me, you can contact them. I’m sure they provide good service as well. Not as priceless as mine, though. 😉


UPDATE 4 – December 15, 2017: Hi everyone. I would like to assure you that I am reading all your email and I am overwhelmed by the number of requests I receive everyday. Unfotunately, my laptop crashed two days ago maybe because of its age, an incompatible update, or whatnot. I haven’t worked on any request since then. I am currently reinstalling my system and recovering my files. After I recover my system, I will slowly try to cope up with the current pending requests. For all others who haven’t sent their request yet, please do me a favor and just save it in your email drafts for now. I will also be out of town until January 12, 2018 and have very limited access to my main system until then. If you have an urgent request regarding domain change, please refer to what I said in my previous update (UPDATE 3). Thank you.

P.S.: I don’t really recommend the people who are doing this for a fee but if you really need an urgent help with your account, that’s the least I can do.


UPDATE 5 – February 5, 2018: I’M BACK! I will be working on requests received today onward. If you sent an email before this update, I advise that you send them again to get in line. Thank you.


UPDATE 6 – February 9, 2018:

Hi Everyone!

I have completed the last pending requests I have in my inbox. I would like to thank you all for the trust and support. Unfortunately, I will be taking on a new project soon so I would need to pause again. I won’t be able to work on any request starting today (Feb 9, 2018 PST). All incoming request emails will be filtered and be sent to trash for the security of your account as well as mine.

It was a pleasure helping you all. Remember to PAY IT FORWARD!

Bye for now.
