Delegate Godaddy DNS access to Googally

Googally needs to make a few DNS changes in your DNS panel to make Google Workspace work for you. These changes includes : 

  • TXT Record Creation : This is created to verify your domain’s ownership to Google.
  • MX Records Creation : These records are created to route your domain’s email to Google Workspace.
  • SPF Record Creation : This record is created to authorize Google email servers’ to send emails on behalf of your domain. 
  • DKIM Record Creation : This record is created to authenticate your emails to recipients.

You can choose any of these options below for these DNS changes : 

  1. Do it yourself (if you don’t feel comfortable sharing DNS credentials, we can send you instructions on how to do these changes yourself).
  2. Share your DNS Credentials with us, and we’ll make all necessary changes for you.

If you use Godaddy for DNS, you can use the following guide to provide us delegated access to your domain in Godaddy, this will limit the scope of our access to the domain we are migrating to Google Workspace for you.
