G Suite and domain verification

The following instructions are made for those who do not have DNS hosting for their domain and want to use ISNIC’s forwarding service to connect to G Suite in accordance to Google’s help page.


Log in on, select your domain and click web forwarding. Under advanced settings you will find Mail Server (MX). According to Google’s help page the value you write in the mail server field is ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. You will need to enter any valid URL or IP address in the top field, that could be another domain you already own.


You can use the TXT method through ISNIC’s forwarding service to accomplish this. We assume you are still on the web forarding page from the instructions above, with advanced settings opened. Go to Google’s help page (Add a TXT verification record (any domain host)) about domain verification and find your unique TXT record. Note that the code includes “google-site-verification=” and then is followed by 43 random characters, see an example:


Put the entire text into the TXT record field on the web forwarding page. After the domain has been verified you can remove the TXT record from the web forwarding page.
