Domains and G Suite

To sign up for G Suite, you must have at least one custom domain associated with your site. This guide covers how to change or move the custom domain tied to your G Suite account.

Change the domain name associated with a G Suite account

You can change your G Suite domain through your Google Admin Console, without changing anything in Squarespace. This involves adding a new domain to your G Suite account and setting it as the primary G Suite domain. For help, follow the steps in Google's guide.

Tip: Google's documentation may state that you can't change your primary domain if you purchased your account through Squarespace, but you can ignore this warning.

After changing your primary G Suite domain, user email addresses listed in the Email panel may end in the new primary domain or your old domain, depending on when they were created. You can change the domain that appears for each user through your Admin Console. For help, follow the steps in Google's guide.

Move the domain associated with a G Suite account to a new Squarespace site

You can move your G Suite account to your new site along with your domain, as long as the new site doesn't already have an active G Suite account. If you move your G Suite account to a site paid for with a different currency, the G Suite subscription will take on the new site's currency.

The process of moving your G Suite account differs slightly depending on who manages your domain:

  • If you use a Squarespace domain with your G Suite account, the account will move automatically with your domain.
  • If you use a third-party domain with your G Suite account, we can manually move the account for you. Contact us before making any changes to your domain or G Suite account.
