Lately, we’ve received many requests from clients seeking to move from GoDaddy to Microsoft Office 365. While advertised as the same product (Microsoft 365), customers quickly discover how different and limiting the GoDaddy platform is.
5 Reasons We Hear Customers Say, “Bye-Forever,” to GoDaddy
Scale-up Larger Company Sizes
Trying to manage a big user base through the GoDaddy admin portals is clunky, to say the least. What should only take a few clicks needs far more steps with GoDaddy’s admin portals. For a small firm with only 1-5 users to support, this may not be a deal-breaker. But, for larger firms, this unnecessarily complicated timewaster translates into hundreds of hours and expensive inefficiency. It soon becomes clear that the GoDaddy systems are not meant for growth, that’s why many business owners prefer Migrating from GoDaddy to Microsoft 365.
Better Technical Support
When advanced tech issues arise, GoDaddy offers the bare minimum. GoDaddy is an internet domain registrar and web hosting firm, not a Microsoft 365 consultant. Even so, they contractually require customers to go through them to seek Microsoft 365 product support. For advanced tech support, finding an expert in the software and its configuration is key to success.
No Hidden Fees or Jump Rates
GoDaddy promotes tantalizingly cheap introductory costs for their Microsoft 365 offerings. What may not be obvious to first-time buyers are the astricts next to these expenses, including the time limit. Customers mention the steep jump in price prompts them to look for alternatives.
Direct Login Process
It might seem like a small issue on the surface, but it can cause issues for clients. As a GoDaddy customer, your authentication into your Microsoft 365 cloud is handled by GoDaddy. This means that if GoDaddy has a service problem at any point, your team may not be able to access their email or documents. Besides vulnerability to downtime, you may not be able to use your Microsoft identity log-in on other platforms. When you access an application through GoDaddy’s interface, its token-based authentication may disagree with other Microsoft apps or services. In today’s 24×7 connected world, being able to work anywhere is fast becoming the new norm. When you move to Office 365, your company data can be easily accessed on Hosted Virtual Desktop Server from any device. Simply sign in to Office 365 online and access your firm data, and emails from your team site or OneDrive.
More License Options
Of the 393 possible configurations available from Microsoft, GoDaddy 365 restricts corporate customers to just two: Microsoft 365 Exchange Online and Microsoft 365 Business Standard. Often, corporate customers need more flexible choices. To make things more difficult, when a GoDaddy customer requires advanced spam protection or email encryption, GoDaddy uses a different provider (further complicating service offering).
