G Suite (formally known as Google Apps ) is a collection of applications most commonly known for email. If you’ve ever had a standard Gmail account, then you’ll feel right at home with G Suite. A G Suite email account looks, feels and tastes exactly like a standard Gmail account, with the exception that your email address is not email@example.com, but rather firstname.lastname@example.org.
G Suite is a service provided by Google and is much more than just an email account in that you get:
- Shared Calendars
- Shared Documents
- Google Drive (online cloud storage)
- POP3 and IMAP Access
- Virtually No More SPAM
- Web Based Email
- Works with your iPhone, Android, Blackberry
- iPads and Tablets
- Works with MS Outlooks, Apple Mail and Eudora
- 30 Gigs of Disk Space Per Email Account
- and much much much more..
Google Apps comes with a free 30 day trial. After your trial period is over, the cost for each email account you create is $5.00 per month / per email account. Google handles all the billing and you even get to speak to a Google support should you ever have a problem or question. If you have not already tried G Suites, let us know by opening a ticket, and we’ll point your domain name to Google’s mail servers at no charge. As a G Suite Premier Partner, we are well versed in the setting up and migration process if switching email service providers.
If you think of an email account as being a P.O. Bx at a Post Office, what Google is offering is your own “Post Office” where you can create as many email accounts (P.O. Boxes) as you need. Again, don’t confuse a Gmail account with G Suite. Gmail is a free email service and G Suite is not. G Suite was designed for those who have their own domain name and wish to use an email address, using their domain.
