How do I add a G Suite account to a domain purchased from Google Domains?
- I just registered a domain on Google Domains.
When I go to the email tab, I see:
- When I tap on Admin Console, it takes me to a log in screen.
When I attempt to log in with my @gmail.com account that I used to register the domain, it shows me this error:
admin.google.com is for G Suite accounts only. Regular Gmail accounts cannot be used to sign in to admin.google.com. Learn more
It seems really odd that I'm stuck in this chicken and egg situation, especially because Google owns both of these products. What's going on? How do I resolve it?
Update: I tried going to http://gsuite.google.com and creating a new G Suite account there, but after entering my domain name, it showed this error:
This domain name is already in use. If you own this domain and would like to use G Suite, please follow the steps here
This makes me think that because I registered the domain with Google Domains, I must set up G Suite with Google Domains as well. Per the issue above though, I'm stuck in that route too. Any ideas how to resolve?
