Transferring Domain Name and Email to Squarespace + Google Workspace

Recommended Posts

Hi!

The easy part, transferring a client's domain name from Godaddy to Squarespace. 

The scary part, how do I help them migrate their emails from Godaddy to Google Workspace? My biggest fear is them losing all their past emails.

I have 2 clients who'd like to move off of Godaddy entirely.

I know this is not a Squarespace question, but if I move the domain, how do I save the emails and do a smooth transition to Squarespace's recommended email system?

Anyone have any resources or articles for this?

I am also interested in knowing if there are members who charge for this service and can do it for me. 

Thank you!

Jodi

See this Google migration guide for moving users from a webmail provider that uses the IMAP protocol. This includes GoDaddy as well as 1&1 IONOS, AOL, Apple iCloud, Bluehost, Yahoo!, and Zoho.

@paul2009 I am also working on transferring a client from IONOS 1&1 to Squarespace + Google Workspace. Should the domain transfer happen first before transferring the email? Any help on the sequence of doing this would be great. Is it easier to transfer the custom domain email through Squarespace, or is it possible to transfer the email directly by signing up for Workspace from Google? 
 

Thanks
