Google Workspace plans and pricing


Google changed the name of its G Suite product to Google Workspace. See the following article for more information:

This article explains what Google Workspace services you can sign up for in the DreamHost panel.

Payment plans & plan types

DreamHost currently offers Google Workspace's 'Business Starter' and 'Business Standard' plans, billed on a monthly basis (Google's "flexible plan").

If you wish to sign up for Google's 'Enterprise' plan, or need another type of payment plan, you will need to sign up directly with Google Workspace.

Google Workspace Business Starter plan

Google Workspace Business Starter is a suite of apps such as email, calendars, online document editing and storage, video meetings, and much more. View the following link for further details.

Administrative controls

Your administrative or IT team can also:

  • Manage user accounts and security settings from a central Admin console
  • Control user access to features and services
  • Remotely manage your mobile fleet
  • Track usage trends via audits and reports
  • Receive 24/7 support from Google Workspace experts

Google Workspace Business Standard plan

Google Workspace Business Standard is the enhanced office suite of Google services. In addition to everything available in Google Workspace Business Starter, it includes features listed below. You can also read more about the Business Standard plan here:

Unlimited storage

Each user can store unlimited Gmail messages, Google Photos, and files in Drive. If there are 4 or fewer users in your organization, each user gets 1 TB of storage.

Company-wide search

Users can also use Google Cloud Search to search for content across Gmail,  Docs, Calendar, and their other Google Workspace services. View the following link for further details.

Team Drives

Team Drives allows files to be owned by a team instead of an individual. If members leave, files stay where they are so the team can continue to share information and get work done. View the following link for further details.

Administrator controls

Archiving with Vault — Use Vault to retain, archive, search, and export your organization's data.

Advanced reports Advanced Drive audit reporting and Mobile audits and alerts such as when a device is compromised.

Activity alertsActivity email alerts allow you to get custom alerts on Drive activity, such as when documents are shared outside your domain.

Security keys — Use Security keys to deploy and monitor security keys for your organization.

Extra policy controls

Restrict even more tasks to specific users, based on organizational units.


Any users you create must be under the same plan for a given domain. This means you cannot have some users on the Business Starter plan and some users on the Business Standard plan for the same domain.

However, you can have different plans for different domains. Domain A could have all users on the Business Starter plan and Domain B could have all users on the Business Standard plan.
