I was realy surprised on how easy it was to set up hosting using google apps. Fisrt of all, all we need is just go here and fill out the application.

if you’re using it for family, private user or non-profit organisation google apps is freely to use. Of course we can Upgrade to Google Apps Premier Edition for bigger storage at 25 GB per user.

The first step of the application is to enter your domain name, if you already have one. Or you can buy a new domain name through Google which automatically sets everything up for you.

click “get started” and a standard application form pops up, Fill it out the form. If information is Accepted by google we will then be taken to our dashboard.

Google Apps Dashboard

Since i’m using subdomain and i’m administering the NSs this is how i’ve set it up.

@               IN      A     
                IN      MX      1       ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
                IN      MX      5       ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
                IN      MX      5       ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
                IN      MX      10      ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
                IN      MX      10      ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
googleffffffffa0blablabla  IN   CNAME
www             IN      CNAME 
mail            IN      CNAME 
calendar        IN      CNAME 
docs            IN      CNAME 

Everything on the Dashboard is self explanatory.Even though non IT person is capable to set it up without too much dificulty, i guess.

you’ll love it 😉
