Summary – Be careful when registering domains at the same time

So far, we have introduced how to register Google Workspace and domain at the same time.

By registering the domain and Google Workspace at the same time, the troublesome DNS settings are automatically performed, so you can start using Google Workspace quickly without worrying about the settings around the domain.

It seems to be beneficial for those who are not confident in DNS related settings, those who want to introduce it quickly, those who want to simply centralize domain and Google Workspace billing, etc.

However,Google Domains management account is linked to the registered Google Workspace accountTherefore, if you want to switch to a service other than Google Workspace for email while keeping your domain, you will need to transfer your domain to another Google account or another domain vendor.

personally,It is better to manage "domain" and "Web service" such as Google Workspace separately so that you can respond flexibly later.I believe.

For example, even if you use Google Domains for domain management, register your Google Domains account with a free Google account (@gmail) instead of Google Workspace, and later link your domain to Google Workspace and other web services. wear.It will be easier to switch between the domain and various Web services.

Simultaneous domain registration can be introduced easily and speedily, but the domain will be under the control of Google Workspace, so it is recommended that those who use it consider it once..
