Introduction

The Google Cloud is a collection of open-source cloud computing services. A variety of hosted services for computation, storage, and application development are included in the platform and are powered by Google hardware. Software developers, cloud administrators, and other company IT experts can access Google Cloud services via a dedicated network connection or the open internet.

Let's dive into the article to understand Cloud Identity in detail, why it is needed, and how to set up cloud identity.

Verifying your domain with a TXT record

We don't want another person to register for Google Workspace using your domain. By proving your ownership, you may aid us in keeping your domain secure. Hence we verify the domain with a txt record. Through your domain host, you may check your domain (typically where you purchased your domain name). DNS records are settings that your domain server manages to send internet traffic to your domain name.

Add a TXT verification record

Get your verification code from Google Workspace

  • Log in the google admin panel.
  • Administrator account should be used to log in (it should not end in @gmail.com).
  • To check your domain with a TXT record, click Continue.
  • In the setup tool, look for your verification code and click Copy.

Go to your domain's DNS records

  • Log in to your domain host account in a separate browser tab or window. See Identify your domain host for further information.
  • Go to the DNS records for your domain. The page may be referred to as Advanced Settings, DNS Management, Name Server Management, or Control Panel.
  • Select the "Add New Record" option.

Add the verification record to your domain host

  • Choose TXT as the record type.
  • Enter @ or leave the field empty in the Name/Host/Alias field.
  • It's possible that your host will ask you to fill up this section with your domain, which looks like example.com. What you need to enter may be indicated by your other DNS entries.
  • Enter 86400 or leave the default value in the Time to Live (TTL) column.
  • Copy the verification record and paste it into the Value/Answer/Destination field from step 1.
  • Save the file.

Tell Google Workspace to check your verification code

  • Access the Google Admin panel by logging in.
  • Use your administrator account to log in (it should not end in @gmail.com).
  • Then click Next.
  • On the following page, scroll to the bottom and click Verify my domain.

Choosing a domain host

An online service known as a domain host is responsible for managing your domain name, such as example.com. To link your domain name with email, websites, and other web services, domain hosts employ Domain Name System (DNS) records. To mention a few, popular domain hosts include GoDaddy, enom, DreamHost, and 1&1 IONOS.

DNS records are used by Google Cloud to configure online services. Add DNS records with your domain server, for instance, to use your domain with Google Workspace.

Choose a domain host.

Verify your invoices.

Typically, you purchased your domain name through your domain host. Search your email archives for billing documents related to the registration or transfer of your domain name if you can't recall who your domain host is.

Use ICANN Lookup

You can look for your domain host online if you can't locate your billing data. Domain information is gathered by the nonprofit Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). To locate your domain host, use the ICANN Lookup application.

  • Visit lookup.icann.org now.
  • Enter your domain name in the search box, then click Lookup.
  • Scroll down to Registrar Information on the results page.
  • Your domain's host is often the registrar.

Set up Cloud Identity

As a Google Cloud administrator, you may learn how to configure Cloud Identity in this post. One of the initial steps in setting up a new Google Cloud organisation is configuring Cloud Identity.

Join Cloud Identity for free

  1. Visit the registration page at https://workspace.google.com/signup/gcpidentity/welcome#0 to get started.
  2. Adhere to the outlined steps.

Creating your first user

Using the Setup Wizard, create your Cloud Identity account and initial admin user as follows:

  • Enter the first and last name in the Name form under "About you."
  • Enter the email address you used to create your prototype project in the Current email address you use for work field.
  • The recovery address will be this email address. It must be distinct from the email address you create here and use to manage Cloud Identity.
  • Put your company name in the Business or organisation name form under the About Your Business section.
  • Select the relevant country or region from the pulldown list and enter it in the Country/Region form.
  • To set up your domain, click Next.
  • You should add the domain you already own for your business in the Your Cloud Identity Domain window. You must either upload an HTML file or create a specific CNAME record to prove that you are the owner.
  • Create your Cloud Identity account by entering a username and password in the corresponding fields. This account—which must be distinct from the email address you specified in step 2 above—is your Cloud Identity administrator account. We advise you to submit a username in the following format: admin@example.com, since this is considered best practise.

Verifying your domain

You must confirm that you are the owner of the domain before using it with Cloud Identity. Your domain, such as your-company.com, is your website address. By verifying your domain, you can stop others from using Cloud Identity with it.

Why verify?

The first step in setting up Cloud Identity for your company is to validate your domain. You are now the administrator of your new account if you are the one who signed up for Cloud Identity. Before you may utilise Cloud Identity, you must demonstrate that you are the owner of your company domain. This guarantees the security of your account and prevents unauthorised users from using your domain's services.

How do I verify?

Through your domain host, you may check your domain (typically where you purchased your domain name). Records (DNS settings) are kept by your domain host and point internet traffic to your domain name.

You receive a verification record from Cloud Identity to add to your domain's DNS settings. Your domain ownership is verified when Cloud Identity detects the record's existence. Your website or email are unaffected by the verification record.

Your domain settings should include a record.

Your domain settings should include a verification record. To enable Google to verify your domain ownership, follow the step-by-step steps in the Verify domain ownership setup tutorial, get your special record (which may be a TXT or CNAME depending on your domain host's preferences), and add it to your domain's DNS settings.
