Is this method replace the need of G-suit or any other professional email service?

The answer is NO. This method mimic those premium email service such as G-suit, Zoho; and provide a custom email, but functionally it is still a simple Gmail account. This method is enough for small business, those who usually ended up to use a Gmail account for communication.

Another disadvantage is that any computer geek can find the actual gmail address behind the email you send. If you consider the privacy, do not use your personal email for this method.
