So I’m trying to figure out – as many have tried before – , whether the user-friendly and reasonably priced domain name registration from Google is available only when purchasing a new domain at the same time while signing up for Google Apps, or whether it’s also available for domains purchased before signing up for Google Apps.
“(…) Google Apps offers domain registration with a select group of domain registration partners. This allows you to purchase a domain name and sign up for Google Apps at the same time. If you purchase a domain name while signing up, Google will auto-configure services for your domain so that you won’t need to manually configure MX and CNAME records.
If you purchased your domain name before signing up for Google Apps, visit our list of domain hosts (some of which are also domain registrars) that have instructions for modifying MX records in our Help Center. (…)”
This still doesn’t give me a clear answer 😦
