Most organizations are now shifting from GoDaddy to starting moving all their tenants using a Microsoft License. This migration lies in the business-changing conditions, lack of proper control of user platforms, and restrictions on licenses and functionalities.
The migration process is time-consuming, complex, and costly, regardless of the business size. Companies that consider factors like data security and tight timelines will be challenging. You can address this by hiring reliable Managed Service Providers to help you migrate seamlessly within your budget and timeline.
Here we look at the best way to achieve a successful migration from GoDaddy. Let's dive in!
GoDaddy and Microsoft relish an integrated partnership allowing its users to get a custom domain and reliable productivity software. GoDaddy allows users to purchase discounted versions of the Microsoft 365 suite. The process is straightforward, allowing businesses to get custom email domains with Microsoft Outlook. Such a setup is an effective measure for controlling and elevating your reputation.
On the downside, these licenses have limits in terms of design. Microsoft 365 tenants bought using GoDaddy tend to have several issues. GoDaddy users do not have access to the complete Microsoft 365 Admin Center. It poses challenges in administrating the tenant as required by Microsoft. Other limitations when using GoDaddy include Microsoft 365 application with its feature sets. You may also find some crucial add-ons not available.
Security is a critical aspect of every business operating in the cloud. You can find some security and compliance limitations that prevent users from completely protecting their infrastructure. It's the most frustrating limitation, especially with costly expenses that accumulate as part of the partner deal.
When you already have GoDaddy and need a way to get the most out of it, it's best to look for a solution that enables you to take full advantage of every feature offered by Microsoft 365. While you can rebuild a tenant fully managed on Office 365, the process is costly and pretty challenging. You need thorough planning combined with technical adjustments and change management across organizational departments to move away from GoDaddy seamlessly.
Using GoDaddy to purchase your business Microsoft 365 tenant enables you to access various Microsoft services. Unfortunately, it will restrict your company from using different core functionalities that you may get when you purchase Microsoft 365 directly through Microsoft.
Without these functionalities, you face significant challenges such as controlling the cost per user that you will incur to enjoy full abilities.
Businesses that are still growing and expanding into new markets need to migrate from GoDaddy to Microsoft 365 to change how their staff collaborate, stores data, and other critical information. Microsoft constantly updates the Microsoft Applications automatically to match you with the modern trends.
Businesses that need to get the functionalities of the premium functions from M365 can get them through an ad-hoc subscription offered by GoDaddy. It is not the best option to go for on a tight budget.
The challenge with migrating fully to Microsoft 365 is losing access to the GoDaddy data. The process is not direct, and you face two major decisions: protect your initial domain and its information, sign off and lose all your tenant data, then rebuild from scratch.
