Logging into G Suite

This guide covers how to log into G Suite by Google after creating your account. You'll log into Google to access Gmail, Google Drive, Admin Console, and other G Suite features.

When in doubt, visit Google's documentation for help with signing into Admin Console or Gmail. Google suggests the best steps for logging in depending on your permissions.

Your first time logging in

After you receive an email from Squarespace with your temporary password, log into your Admin Console to complete the setup.

  1. In the confirmation email, click the Log Into Email link.
  2. Log in using the temporary password and the new email address you created. If you’re already logged into another G Suite or Gmail account, like your personal account, first choose Add account, and then log in.
  3. You’ll be taken to your new G Suite dashboard.
  4. Accept G Suite’ Terms of Service.
  5. Enter a new password.
  6. You’ll be logged into your new G Suite inbox.
Note: If you see a request to verify domain ownership, or a message that you don't have access to email, retry domain verification.
Tip: After logging in, you can use Google’s setup wizard to get started.

Log in after setup

After logging in for the first time, use these URLs to access G Suite. Replace “yourdomain.com” with the custom domain you use for G Suite. We recommend bookmarking these for easy access:

  • Admin Console - http://admin.google.com/a/yourdomain.com
  • Email - http://mail.google.com/a/yourdomain.com

"You need a Google Cloud account to login" message

Google will show this message if you tried to log into a G Suite Administrator account, but you’re logged into another email address, like your personal email. In the message, you’ll see a list of email addresses and/or the option to add another account.

To resolve the issue and log into your G Suite Admin console:

  1. If this is your first time logging in or if the address isn't in the list, click Add account, and then log in using your custom email address, not a @gmail.com address.
  2. If the email address you want is in this list, select it. (Ensure it's not a @gmail.com address.)
