    Google Apps- domain or hosting?

    Hi, I own a domain and have a hosting account account with that domain. I have have Google Apps associated with that domain.

    I don't really want the hosting account (I don't need a website), I only want the domain with the google apps.

    Can I get rid of the domain, and if so, will google apps still run fine?
    I will just need a link on my other website to get to the google apps login page.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, Google isn't the domain registrar. Basically I only want google apps- not the hosting account.
    I own the domain, and also have a hosting account with the domain.

    Great, thanks for your help. I've contacted my domain registrar and hosting supplier, who has sorted it out. As you've all suggested, this is possible as long as you have the ability to change some dns settings (or the registrar company can do it for you).

    Just so long as you can still adjust the DNS setting somehow so as to point the MX records to Google otherwise mail won't be delivered.
