DNS Setup

The information presented below describes all of the DNS records that I created in order to allow Google to host both my email and any websites. I do this at GKG.net.

Mail Redirection ...
To redirect your domain email to Gmail you need to create a number of MX records that point your default domain (@) to Google Mail Servers.
@ alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
@ alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
@ aspmx.l.google.com.
@ aspmx2.googlemail.com.
@ aspmx3.googlemail.com.
Web Redirection ...
You need to configure a TXT record for Google Site Verification.
@ "google-site-verification=somebigolelongstringthatgooglemakesup"
Also create A records to Google
And finally some CNAME records that you map from Google Apps.
docs ghs.google.com.
mail ghs.google.com.
sites ghs.googlehosted.com.
www ghs.googlehosted.com.

NOTE that I had kiplandiles.com Parked at GKG.net but did not remove it from parking nor did I redirect it to Google. These DNS records override any parking settings there. It may be different if you park your domain with another domain registrar.
