I bought 2 domains managed by Google Domains, the .CA and the .COM versions. Let's call them example.ca and example.com

I purchased GSuite for business for this domain and created a personal email, byron@example.com

I purchased a hosting plan from a third-party provider called HostPapa.

The issue:

To set up my website, I need to set up my name servers to point to the HostPapa servers, but doing so causes my Gsuite email to be unable to receive mail.

The Question:

What do I need to set up so that I can have my email and domain hosted by Google and working properly, but still have the example.com and example.ca point to my website at HostPapa?

    "To set up my website, I need to set up my name servers to point to" - you didn't necessarily need to change the NS records. You could have instead created A (and optionally CNAME) records to point to the web host, and keep everything else the same. hostpapa.co.uk/knowledgebase/servers-ip-address – MrWhite Nov 4 at 11:16
  • Isn't this one of the reasons that most URLs used to begin with "www."? – Ray Butterworth Nov 4 at 19:53
