Unlike normal Google Apps(free Google account) G Suite provides much more storage facility. When it comes to transfer G Suite to another account/domain, it becomes a problem. As an organization having G Suite account have to migrate each user data to another account/domain, which takes a lot of time.

“Hello, I have been assigned with a task by my Manager to find a method to “transfer G Suite to another account/domain”. As we want to change our G Suite domain and migrate account of every employee in the company to a new domain. We are looking for a quick solution to perform that task. Be sure to provide the solution which is risk-free, as we don’t wanna lose any data of employee during the transfer process. Also, data integrity and security should be preserved.”

Method to Transfer G Suite to Another Account/Domain

There are normally two methods to migrate email from G Suite to G Suite, both require the access of the Admin G Suite account.

Method 1: Export G Suite account data using Mail Migration Services

Google provides a manual method for the G Suite user to migrate emails from one account to another. This is a free method but the transfer process is quite complicated because it requires setting-up mail migration service which includes:
1. Microsoft Exchange Server
2. Office 365 account
The method requires lots of technical skills and memory space. It becomes a burden when needed to migrate multiple user’s data to another account.

Note – Generally we never recommend this method to the user’s because it takes a lot of time to fulfill all the pre-requisites. Still, if you like to more about this method then you can see this Google post: https://support.google.com/a/answer/6174025?hl=en
