Connecting Google Workspace to Netlify


I’m having some trouble figuring out how to connect my website to my Google Workspace account. I had previously done it through Namecheap, but I have decided to host my website on Netlify so now I need to switch my MX over to Netlify. How would I go about doing this?



Hi @benton welcome to the forums.

Short answer Zoho.

@benton Could you be more specific about what you are trying to do? You cannot switch your mail servers to Netlify because Netlify doesn’t run mail servers.

However, you easily can add the MX records needed by Google in your Netlify DNS dashboard.

Finally, just because you are hosting on Netlify doesn’t mean you have to use Netlify DNS. You can continue to use NameCheap DNS, if that’s easier for you.

Hi there,

Thanks for your advice. Apologies for not communicating my issue well. I’m looking to receive Gmail and use Google workspace, but have my site hosted through Netlify. I’m not sure where to look for the MX records that I need to plug into Google workspace so that I can have my mail go to it.
