Google Apps verification Troubleshoot: IndiaGetOnline
IndiaGetOnline is a free website service for Indian business people who do small business in the country. A collaboration with HostGator by Google has made the Indian business people to register a new site for their business. It offers a Top Level Domain (TLD) which really ranks the site in Google search results at top. By this, the products offered by the company goes more exposed in the World Wide Web.
To register in IndiaGetOnline, you will need to enter PAN card number which is a one time requirement and it is required for the individual's resident status in India. The registration doesn't require any credit card or debit card process as it is absolutely free for the first year. To continue for further years, you must upgrade to normal HostGator plans under their premium pack.
The site is neither managed using a file manger nor by a platform, but users are supposed to use a website builder to build the site. Predefined themes and Layouts are available for constructing a website. Though it is a free service for one year, it offers services like Google Apps, Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Google Adwords and also a feature to submit the URL to Google. Adsense feature can be availed only if the site attains the minimum requirements for signing up Adsense. It provides Rs. 2500 free Google Adwords credits which enables your business to promote on Google search results or other Google Advertisement banners.
Most of the users have now created complaints for getting a Google Apps account. This problem was created due to a tutorial described on the Control Panel of their website. Google Apps, as to verify the domain, it needs to verify the site ownership by uploading a HTML file, Google Analytics code, TXT verification, CNAME verification, MX Records etc. but CNAME or MX Records are not shown to us if we get a site using IndiaGetOnline. That's one of the disadvantage. In the description given in the dashboard says to choose the TXT verification method and asks to paste the code to verify it. Whatever code we paste, it shows a success message but actual verification process by the Google Apps is not seen. I mean, Google Apps cannot check the verification status.
IndiaGetOnline also uses an ability to upload files like images, music and other stuffs related to your business site. It can hold up to 5 GB of uploaded data. To verify the ownership in the Google Apps, just select the method to upload a HTML code. Ignore the description given in the Dashboard of IndiaGetOnline site. Download the verification file from Google Apps and Upload to your free website, so to do this, you have some steps here.
- Log in to your account using hostgator.co.in
