Create Free Email address Using Your Website Domain with Google Apps

You don't even need a credit card to try Google Apps. It's free for up to 10 users - just fill out this quick form to create your account. You will get a free 10GB storage to save all your emails & rich medias.

Steps To Create a Gmail Account For a Website
Follow these easy steps:
2. Submit your website address without typing http://
3. Then fill up the vacant blanks with required information. Keep your username simple because this will be attached to your domain name to create your custom Gmail account username. In my case I choose sartaj.
4.  Keep Alternate email address the same as your personal Gmail ID or any ID  that you use frequently.
5. Click the submit button to create your account 
6. You have now successfully created an account with Google apps. Now you need to verify that you actually own the domain. You will be given two options Express and Custom as shown below. Choose express.

7. Click the next buttons till you get to Domain verification page. Here you get 5 options to verify your domain which are:
  • Upload HTML File      (Recommended Method)
  • HTML Tag            (under alternate Methods tab)
  • Google Analytics       (under alternate Methods tab)
  • Domain Name provider       (under alternate Methods tab)
  • I Choose the second option of HTML Tag because it is the easiest of all. Copy the <meta> tag provided in your control panel's instructions, and using any text or HTML editor, paste it in your site's home page. Place it in the <head> section, before the first <body> section.
Once done, hit the verify button.

8 Click the continue link and you will be taken to Google Apps Setup wizard. You may keep all options default and keep clicking next till you reach setup Gmail:
Choose other from the drop down box which says "Choose your Host" Click Next

Switch MX records at your domain host :

1. Sign in to your hosting account, and go to the MX record maintenance page. Delete all existing MX entries. By default, MX records may already be present.Enter the following MX records. 

MX records may be located in DNS Management, Mail Server Configuration, or Name Server Management. You may have to enable advanced settings to edit your MX records.

2. You may not be able to enter the priority value exactly as it appears in the table below—if you can, make sure each record follows the indicated order. If you aren't able to assign priorities, you should only enter aspmx.l.google.com.. Set any TTL values to 1 Hour (value=3600).

PriorityPoints to
1ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
10ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
10ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.

Note: ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM is the top priority mail server. Don't assign the top priority to any other servers. Learn more about mail server priority. Be sure to include trailing dot (.) at the end of any full-qualified domain names (for example, server.example.com.) if your MX records require this format.

3. Save your changes.


Congratulations! Your MX records will soon point to Google! Keep in mind that this change isn't instant but might take up to 24 hours to take effect (though it can happen a lot faster). If your records don't change by then, contact your domain host for help.
