Can I add multiple domains to my Google Workspace account?

Yes, you can.

If you own another domain, manage multiple businesses or brands, each with its own domain or you want to change the domain name on your Google Workspace or Cloud Identity account. Depending on your needs, you add a domain as a domain alias or a secondary domain.

Before you begin, please review the table below carefully to help you understand how this works and determine the right solution for what you want to achieve.

Important: Some information and features are linked only to your primary domain i.e logo and organization name and cannot be altered.

Domain Aliases

Secondary Domain

Give users an email address at the other domain 

Manage separate teams of users or businesses at different domains

Each user gets an email address at both your primary domain and domain alias

Each of your domains has a different set of users that can be managed in the Admin console for your primary domain

A user can send and receive email from either address in the user’s primary mailbox

A user gets a Google Workspace account, email address, and mailbox for their domain

Each mailing group also gets an email address at the domain alias

Each mailing group also gets an email address at the secondary domain.

No extra cost per user or group

Pay for each user account that you add to your secondary domain

Add up to 20 domain aliases to a Google Workspace account.

Add up to 599 secondary domains to your account

titi@main-company.com (primary domain)

titi@other-company.com (alias domain)

titi@main-company.com (primary domain)
joel@other-company.com (secondary domain)

Domain alias cannot be converted to be the primary domain.

People can share files with either the user's primary email address or alias address.

Domain aliases cannot be converted or migrated into multi-domain accounts.

Secondary domains can be converted or migrated into multi-domain accounts.

Global URL will be a primary domain

Each secondary domain has its own custom URL different from the primary domain. No global URL. i.e. http://mail.primary_domain.com and http://mail.secondary_domain.com

Redirection of naked URL will be at the primary domain and not the alias.

Secondary domains can't be redirected to a "naked" URL.

 

Note: If you manage a large organization, some users might have a personal Google Account that already uses the domain with other google services i.e Youtube, Google Ads, etc. When you add the domain alias, those users' accounts are automatically renamed and all data in the accounts remains outside of your organization’s management. To find users already with Google Accounts, first, add the domain as a secondary domain. The list of accounts is generated within 24 hours. Learn more about conflicting accounts.
