Ready to Leave GoDaddy?

A lot of GoDaddy users are finding they get more value and better service when they migrate to a different platform. More than a year ago, BitTitan added features to help Get Your Mail Out of GoDaddy. If you haven’t made the move already, MigrationWiz makes it easy to move all email components from inboxes and folders to contacts, calendars, tasks, journals, and notes. That also includes server-side rules, folder permissions, and calendar acceptance status emails – even post when the destination is Exchange or Office 365.

While students and faculty are at home, it’s a good time for system upgrades that will enhance collaboration, access, and security. Many colleges, universities, and school systems are planning winter break migrations to move or consolidate tenants and even adopt new collaboration platforms.

If you’re using Google Workspace, MigrationWiz is the tool you need for migrating a wide variety of workloads: Mailboxes, documents, archives, and even collaboration platforms. You can take advantage of low education pricing to move from one Google instance to another, or from Google Workspace to Microsoft Teams. MigrationWiz handles all these workloads:

  • Gmail and Vault, including inbox, folders/labels, email, muted emails, contacts, calendars, and calendar notifications.
  • Drive, including files, folders, permissions, document history, comments, and more.
  • Shared Drives, including documents, permissions, versions, and metadata.

Great education pricing is one thing, but when you’re planning a migration, you should never skimp on experience, capabilities, and security. That’s why BitTitan has been the choice of educational institutions for more than 13 years.

Experienced experts are here to help

BitTitan has migrated thousands of students, faculty, and staff at hundreds of educational institutions all around the globe. While MigrationWiz is known for being intuitive and easy to use, you never have to go it alone, especially if your project is more complex. Our world-class Customer Success team are dedicated migration experts who can help you plan your project.

In fact, now is the perfect time to call so we can connect you with team members who have extensive experience in educational environments – including implementing complex Google Workspace migrations.

Fast, easy, and flexible

Educational institutions choose MigrationWiz because it’s fully automated and 100% SaaS. In fact, if you were expecting to sprint around campus in order to complete your migration, you may have to get your exercise some other way. With MigrationWiz you simply initiate your migration from one centralized dashboard, then use DeploymentPro – which is included – to automate Outlook configuration.

Don’t be fooled, though. Easy doesn’t mean basic. MigrationWiz is highly customizable with advanced options that give you full control over your migration. You’re always in charge of timing, testing, setup, and execution. You can also use project sharing to involve team members across departments for greater visibility and collaboration throughout the migration.

Top security with Azure datacenters

Security is top priority for every migration project, especially in educational settings. You’re responsible for protecting personal information from students and faculty, as well as proprietary documents and research. You must be able to ensure every bit of data is safe throughout the migration process. With MigrationWiz you get the extra security of Azure datacenters. And, your data is always encrypted and never stored.

With BitTitan by your side, you can get a lot done over winter break. So when faculty, staff, and students return, they might not even notice because they’ll be able to get started with the new semester without any disruptions.

Now’s the time to plan your migration

Maybe you haven’t made the move yet because you have more than mail tied up with GoDaddy. Well, now may be the time. The latest MigrationWiz upgrade allows you to migrate OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Teams from GoDaddy to your preferred platform.

Migration licenses to go

If you’re only moving mail from GoDaddy, you can pick up a MigrationWiz Mailbox license and get started. Here’s what you need if you want to migrate additional workloads:

Mailboxes and OneDrive files: The User Migration Bundle (UMB) is your single license for moving mail, documents, and archives – with no data limit. The UMB is one of our most flexible and popular licenses, and it includes DeploymentPro for automatic Outlook configuration.

Non-user mailboxes: MigrationWiz Mailbox Licenses provide full-fidelity migration for shared, room, and equipment mailboxes with a wide roster of supported endpoints. You’ll need one license for every 50 GB of data.

SharePoint Online Document Libraries, classic SharePoint Online sites, and Microsoft 365 Group Sites: The MigrationWiz Shared Document license is a simple, lightweight solution for moving files, folders, permissions, versions, and metadata. MigrationWiz makes it easy to move document libraries from GoDaddy to SharePoint Online, Office 365 Groups, or Google Shared Drive. Choose either the 50 GB data limit or the 100G GB data limit.

Microsoft Teams: Move teams, channels, conversation history, chats, and more with the MigrationWiz Collaboration license. This purpose-built migration license includes features to auto-discover and import teams. You can also monitor and manage your project at an individual team level. And, each license handles up to 100 GB of data.
