What is the difference between applying for Gmail and Google Workspace (G Suite)?
The biggest difference is that one is paid, the other is free. Personal Gmail can be used for free. Google Workspace for Business, however, is a paid subscription because it has extensive features, such as user management via Admin Console. To learn more about the differences, please read the section “Differences between Gmail and Google Workspace (Gmail for Business)” .
Also, be sure to get a domain before applying for Google Workspace. If the company is newly established and does not have a domain yet, you can consider buying it from BigDomaint or GoDaddy.
