Having a Google business account is really an honor for anyone; who is running a sole proprietorship business. Being an owner of a particular company, every other person likes to have its own business email account so that important messages can be sent and received using that professional email address. It can be quite blissful for them to create the Google business email accounts by following a proper procedure.
To be clear, Google does not play the bit of a part in creating a business email account until and unless the user avails its hosting service to get registered with the same to create a platform for developing a business website. It’s all up to the hosting service providers; who help users in adding a domain name before allowing him to develop a website through a website builder application or by formulating HTML codes or Java scripts or PHP coding through the Adobe Macromedia Dreamweaver application.
How Users Actually Create Business Email Account
Actually, when a user purchases a domain for the business purpose; he/she look for the web hosting server to set up a domain. Once it is done, the cPanel access details are provided to them to add a domain and start developing a business website. In the same dashboard, there is also an option to create an email account in the format “yourname@yourdomainname”.
Once this business email address is created, it can be accessed by opening a webmail server. So whenever; the user look to send or receive messages through the business email account, he/she needs to access webmail server of a particular domain. For e.g. yourdomainname/webmail.

Gmail business email accounts can be set up for free for a certain time period, say 14-15 days as it is for the specific trial period.
