Godaddy to G Suite Migration Process
Are you concerned about your migration? Let us give you a tour of our proven end to end migration process.
1. Migration Inputs
It all starts with understanding about your current email system, where we ask a few questions like which Godaddy email plan you use, where is your DNS hosted etc. You can learn more our migration requirements here.
2. Advance Payment
We ask 50% advance to assign our expert migration resources and premium tools to your project.
We use Paypal so you can pay by using any of your major credit card.
Once we have all required Godaddy (and DNS) information, we enter it in our Google Sheet based project management tool to share with you (we bet, you can easily manage projects in Google Sheets).
You can easily track progress of your migration on this Google Sheet. Our team keeps it updated every couple of hours.
4. G Suite Setup
We start setting up G Suite for you following Google’s best recommended practices including domain verification, SPF record creation, DKIM setup, creating users, aliases, groups and resource calendar.
Our setup also includes configuring all Google recommended security settings.
5. Migration Setup
We start the magic of making connections between Godaddy and G Suite email servers, fix issues (if any).
At this time, we are ready to programmatically access data from your Godaddy email servers and ingest that into your G Suite users mailboxes.
6. Base Migration
We do migration in two phases (1) Base Migration and (2) Delta Migration, and let us tell you why.
If you take any action on the email in Godaddy mailbox (e.g moving it to a folder) after we migrated it, migration utilities would not catch it.
To avoid this, we migrate emails starting From 01-01-1990 TO 30 days older than today in the first (Base) migration and last 30 days email in second (Delta) migration which is performed on weekend after changing your email routing.
8. Email Routing
Now as your base migration has been completed, we make the changes in your DNS to switch your domain’s email routing to G Suite and within a short period of time all new emails will start coming to your G Suite mailboxes.
If you are a geek, this is called Mail Exchanger Routing or MX Routing.
9. Delta Migration
Its weekend and now is the time to migrate last 30 days of emails, also your contacts and calendar events.
It doesn’t take us more than couple of hours to migrate last 30 days of emails, and all contacts and calendar.
10. your review
You get an email “Your data migration is completed”, please login in to your mailbox and confirm if things look perfect.
Mostly, there would not be any issues as we do this everyday, but worst case if there are any, don’t worry we know stuff well (very well) and can fix it in no time.
11. Enjoy G Suite

Most frequent questions and answers about Godaddy to G Suite migration.
Aha, That’s a great question.
You don’t want you to juggling around systems, or answering 300 odd questions to migrate from Godaddy to G Suite, do you?
Here at Googally, all we ask you is to provide some information (mentioned here) and you are done!
Seriously, thats it.
We do all the heavy lifting required to migrate you from Godaddy to G Suite within a weekend.
We can’t pay, but feel free to make a trip to Hawaii after providing us required information. You need not to worry about your data migration, its all taken care by our G Suite experts here.
Oh Yes! We Can.
Let us reveal couple of secrets.
We use premium data migration tools resulting in thunderstorm like speedy data migration.
If you users have ~ 5 GB of data in their mailboxes, we can migrate them fully within a weekend.
But how about mailboxes which are much larger, say 20 GB?
Great Question, seems you have some email supermans, but no worries we can help them fly too.
Our super smart G Suite experts migrate your data from latest to oldest. So when your heavy users login to their G Suite mailboxes on Monday morning, they will have at least last 2-3 years of email.
Rest of their emails will keep on migrating behind the scenes, so you are kinda all set (unless you are really lagging behind and want to reply to that 7 year old email:).
Thats not why you hired us, right?
Obviously there are some limitations where Gmail will reject to accept emails, think of cases where someone is trying to migrate an email with virus, or an email with an attachment larger than 50 MB (Gmail’s limit is 50 MB), thats a No NO.
But other than these fair reasons, all your Godaddy emails would go right into your G Suite Gmail just like cream cheese in a plain bagel.
Nothing is impossible.
If you are determined you can even go to the moon.
So instead of asking “Can’t we do it by ourselves?” rather ask “Should we do it ourselves”?.
If you want to do it yourself, you can………. but you will need to put in a few hours, days or even weeks to learn the in and outs of G Suite migration, and still be doing hit and try.
Unless you are a student who wants to learn things by investing a few days or weeks, it will make better business sense to hire us.
We make our living migrating businesses from variety of systems to G Suite every weekend.
We know what it takes to migrate those tiny and gigantic emails, that huge folder structure and a long list of those calendar appointments.
We can help you smoothly migrate from Godaddy to G Suite, and definitely save you reasonable time, energy and money.
Hmm, now you are almost convinced :).
We are different than other G Suite in two things.

Our customers tell us after getting G Suite migration quotes from our competitors that our pricing is ridiculous.
You will find our pricing almost 3 times cheaper than of our competitors in , sometimes even 4 times cheaper.
You don’t believe us? then ask us for a quote, and compare us to see a difference.
One of our customers was transparent enough to share the $1100 quote he got from another Google Cloud partner. We migrated them smoothly to G Suite in $260. Did you notice the price difference? ;).
I know you have a question now.
How can these guys deliver quality work if their pricing is so reasonable?
