Free Workspace Email is no longer supported
Why is GoDaddy no longer offering free Workspace Email? How do I keep my email account?
We’re standardizing our email platforms to a better email system. This new platform is secure, stable and offers more storage. It can be synced across all devices, from mobile to desktop, offering a better overall experience and product for our customers.
If you want to keep your email account you'll need to upgrade the free email account to a paid version of Workspace Email or migrate it to Microsoft 365.
What if I don't want my email account but want to save my emails?
You can save and export emails from Workspace Email using Thunderbird or Outlook. See Save and export emails using Thunderbird or Create a backup file to export my email account info.
Does this include free email forwarding credits?
No, free email forwarding credits are different from free email credits. Your free email forwarding credits are still available and there should be no disruption to your service.
Does this affect the email accounts I pay for?
The discontinuation of free Workspace Email has no effect on paid email plans, such as:
- Microsoft 365
- Professional Email
- Workspace Email (paid plans)
- cPanel Email

What happens to my email account after 30 days?
