How to set up G Suite for Education
Before we start, you must know that to use Google for Education Services you must require your custom domain. Either you can purchase it from google itself or you can purchase it from other registrar like GoDaddy, BigRock or any other whoever is giving you best discount.

 

How to Set Up G Suite For Education 

 

  • Sign Up for G Suite for Education

Of course first step to start with this tool is you have to sign up for it. Go to official page and fill up all the required details over there.

Remember that this account will be used as super admin account. using this ID you can add, Delete, Modify teacher's and student's details in your school. So make your password strong enough that no one can crack it. Do you know what the best part is? Even someone will crack your password they will not be able to log in if you have set up 2 step verification for security.

In 2 step verification google sends a text message on your cell phone every time you log in and after entering that text pin code only you will be able to log in. So if you think that you have very much sensitive data, you should go with this security setting.

  • Verify your domain

Since you have created account but your domain is still not verified by google. So they will ask if you own the domain or not. for that you have to give them proof that you really own the domain.


First you have to log in to admin.google.com. Since you are logging in for the first time, it will ask you to make a choice for a) Set up with google adviser 2) Set up as your own. I would suggest to go with Set up as your own option.

Now Admin console will open.  You have to click "Start Setup" which is available at the top of the page. Then you have to click "Verify Domain" as shown in below image.
