I am a newbie in this world and I am trying to learn, I have a website with its domain (lets say www.xe.net) and it is working with Cloudflare and I have some google suite services working (somebody else did this for me long ago) at the moment, if a logged user goes to mail.xe.net or calendar.xe.net it will go directly to his/her email or to the calendar. My question is: is there any way use another domain (i.e. xe.dev) and make the google services run trough that addres? so for example to check the email the addres to type would be mail.xe.dev but still will use the xe.net domain? does this make any sense?
I am not sure I understand exactly what you are looking for… Do you just want a redirect from mail.xe.dev to mail.xe.net, or do you want to redirect everything on xe.dev to xe.net? You can do all this with page rules.
My explanation was horrible, thanks for even trying hehe. I am gonna try my best:
What I would like is that if a user type mail.xe.net this will do nothing but then if he types mail.xe.dev(the new domain) it will actually go to mail.xe.net and will access to his email account. Does it make any sense? Basically what I want is to add some more security so if by any chance anyone from outside gets to break the password do not get access to all the other services such as drive and calendar for example. Probably there are better ways to do this, but as I said, I am just a newbie. I am open to any other solutions or documentation to start reading in order to improve this issue.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer, it is apprecieated
So assuming I get you this time, you want some way of limiting the services accessed when logged into a GSuite account?
I think that even if you put the mail link on a separate domain, those URLs just redirect you to the relevant Google pages. So if you get into Drive, you can switch to Gmail easily without using the custom link on your domain. I don’t think there is really anything that Cloudflare can help with here. You could use something like Cloudflare Access to limit who can access an area of your site, but I don’t think that would help with GSuite given you can log in through a Google page (not on your domain), usually, as well.
I do not really want to limit the services access actually, what I have on mind is to disable the routes mail/calendar/drive.xe.net, so in the case somebody figure out a user´s password if he just type in the bar mail.xe.net gets an error page, and instead make them work through mail/calendar/drive.xe.dev . Basically I would like to add some security. Does it make any sense? What would be a better if not too complicated solution?
I am new on this world so I would like to learn, I have learnt a lot through the forum and videos but I cannot find but I want to do, so sorry if my question is too obvious but I have not found what I am looking for with the search tool.
Basically I have 2 domains (lets say 123.net and 123.dev) currently we are working with 123.net for email calendar and drive on G-suite, I would like to find a way so instead typing mail.123.net to go to the email users could just type mail.123.dev and redirect them to the mail services which are running on 123.net, is there any way to do this?
Hello again, and thanks for replying, I basically just want to redirect email, drive and calendar, so 3 urls, I tried the pager rules and did not work but I just realized the 123.dev was still pending nameserver update, once is done I will try again. But I should not need anything apart from 3 page rules right? I will go through the links you provided me
but still do not seem to work.If I do the redirecto from f****.dev to f****.net it does redirect to the website, but I am looking to redirect the email. calendar and drive urls from g suite. As far as I have watched on the tutorials, the domain I want to redirect to, does not need to be changed at all right?
So I changed the redirection on the .dev so it forward it directly to https://mail.google.com/a/f**************s.net and it still works, and I removed the DNS subdomains for mail, calendar and drive on the .net but… they are also still working, I am doing something wrong? or it could take a while to take effect?
And you can see status: NXDOMAIN which means that the DNS records weren’t found.
Also, you probably realised this, but when you are forwarding the .dev domain, obviously this is the link for mail, but you need to use https://drive.google.com/a/f**************s.net and https://calendar.google.com/a/f**************s.net respectively for the drive and calendar redirects.
