This step-by-step walkthrough will show you exactly how to use your current email address (name@example.com) to create a Google Account, instead of creating an account getting Gmail address.

1. Open Google.com (preferably in incognito mode) and click the blue Sign in button at top right of your screen. If you are already signed in, log out first and then click the Sign in button.

2. Next click the Create account link below the sign in box for a new Google Account sign up form.

3. Fill in your First and Last Name in the appropriate fields.

4. Under the “Choose your username” box is a link that says “I prefer to use my current email address” which, when clicked, will allow you to use your alternate email address. Click that link.

 

 

5. Then you can enter your current (non-Gmail) email address in the box.

 

6. You can then continue filling out the rest of the form, which is pretty standard and doesn’t require any special steps:

  • Create and confirm a password
  • Enter your birthdate
  • Select your gender
  • Add your mobile phone number (for security)
  • Choose your geographic locations

Once you’ve filled out all the fields you can click the Next step button. You’ll then be asked to confirm that you agree with Google’s Privacy and Terms. Once you’ve done that you’ll just need to confirm your account by following the instructions sent to your email address that you gave.

And that’s it! You’ve officially set up a company Google account with your own domain name.

 

To Recap how you setup a Google Account without a gmail address by:

  1. Open Google.com and click Sign in
  2. Enter your name
  3. Click “I prefer to use my current email address
  4. Enter your current email address
  5. Create and confirm a password
  6. Select your gender
  7. Add a mobile phone number
  8. Enter you birthday
  9. Choose your location
