How do I manage my Google domain via the Enom Access Domain Management portal?
If you are unsure of what password to use, try the password reset instruction in the tutorial. Alternatively, you can find the password via your G Suite Admin console:
- Sign into G Suite Admin console and click Domains. You might have to scroll down to see Domains.
- Click Add/remove domains.
- Click Advanced DNS settings. You will find your domain's password and a link to sign in to your DNS Console.
If you have changed the password to your DNS console previously and cannot recall it, you will need to use the recovery instructions in the tutorial.

How do I know if my domain was registered through Google?
Search for your domain using this tool. If the following result returns, your domain domain was registered with Enom through Google.
Can I have my hosting or email through Enom?
Domains registered through Google can not use Enom’s hosting or email service because Enom’s hosting services are tied to an Enom account. If you really want to use Enom’s hosting or email service, you will need to transfer the domain into an Enom account.
When I visit my website, a page loads stating my domain has been suspended. Why?
After registering a new domain, a verification email is sent to the email address you provided during the G Suite account creation process. The subject of this email will be similar to the following:
"IMMEDIATE VERIFICATION REQUIRED for example.com"
This email will contain instructions to verify your domain name, please be sure to review this email and follow the provided instructions to verify your domain name's registration.
- If no action is taken to verify the domain within 15 days of its registration, the domain will be suspended, which can lead to email delivery issues, and will direct your website to a page with instructions to lift the suspension.
- If your domain name has been suspended, it can take up to 48 hours to become active once verification has been completed.
- If you have questions about this process, or are not receiving our verification emails, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I visit my website, a "404" error page loads. What does this mean?
As a G Suite user, your domain name is set, by default, to utilize the powerful website-building tool, Google Sites. If you have not created your site, the "404 error" page you're seeing is expected, and means "this website's homepage cannot be found."
You are free, however, to utilize the website provider of your choice, and G Suite has provided a list of recommended website providers here .
- Enom is unable to provide webhosting or email services for your domain name, and as such, it is recommended that you do not purchase our services for use with a domain name registered through G Suite.
