I'm mostly interested in using Google App Engine for a public-facing website but I'm confused as heck about how Google wants me to structure my accounts.
When Google App Engine launched, I played around with it using my regular GMail account and deploying to foo.appspot.com. At one point I wanted to use a custom domain (realmode.com). Using a custom domain requires signing up for Google Apps, which I did. I was asked to verify my account by typing in a code sent to my phone.
Fast forward to the present. I decided to use Google App Engine for a real website (strokeproduction.com). I signed up for Google Apps using this domain. I completed the various DNS tasks to prove I owned the domain, redirect strokeproduction.com to www.strokeproduction.com and set up A-records to point www.strokeproduction.com to the IP address Google required. Then I went to deploy a GAE app under this new account.
When I clicked Create Application, Google wanted me to verify my new account by sending a code to my phone. I entered my phone number, but it complained that I'd already used that phone number for a different account. Well, ok, that's true.
Am I not supposed to have more than one Google Apps account? I wouldn't mind just using my regular old GMail account except that would mean giving my personal password to anyone with the ability to deploy to strokeproduction.com.
What I'm trying to do—having a Google Apps account for more than one project, but having only one phone—doesn't seem like it would be unusual. How am I supposed to set up accounts to handle this?
