How to Configure GoogleApps Using cPanel

Hello! Today I am going to be showing you how to configure GoogleApps for documents using cPanel. By doing this, you will be able to create, edit and store documentation online, with real-time collaboration. Anyone visiting your custom subdomain will be able to work with others and view all of the documents that they store there.

To take advantage of this Google Application, you must already have a GoogleApps account that is configured to your domain. If you do not already have a GoogleApps account configured to your domain, create one first by going here, registering, and following the easy steps to verify your ownership of the domain.

Before we start, a video version of this tutorial can be found below:
