HostPapa’s setup and support services ensure you are properly set up, that you enjoy a smooth transition, and that you and your employees have all the training and resources you need to fully take advantage of the benefits of Google Apps for Work.

Google Apps for Work accesses and fully draws upon the power of cloud computing. It’s a new way of working that leaves behind the old frustrations of outdated software, expensive licenses, hardware maintenance, incompatibility, lost files, email attachments, and more.

With Google Apps, all your files and data, including emails, calendars, and presentations are stored in the cloud - and so are your software tools and applications. All you need to get to work is an Internet-enabled device and a connection.

No matter where you are, you can be connected anytime, through your computer, laptop, or mobile device. You’ll always have access to the most up-to-date files and information and - thanks to the advances made by Google - you’ll be able to collaborate with colleagues on files online and in real-time! Chat (by text, voice, or video) right from your web browser. It’s streamlined, simple, and very cost-effective.

Three words: simplicity, accessibility, and cost.

  • Google Apps is easy to use. Google Apps offers an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. Minimal training will be needed for end users, and HostPapa has everything you need to make the transition.
  • Google Apps is accessible anywhere, anytime. Unlike an on-premises mail solution, Google Apps email (Gmail) is available from any web browser. This gives you complete access to your contacts, sent mail, archives, settings, chat window, and more. Documents and calendars are also available from any Internet-enabled device. Communication is easy – you are no longer tied down to a single desktop computer or one server.
  • Google Apps will save you money. With Google Apps, you no longer have to worry about license costs, maintaining mail servers (or server rooms), updates, and so on. There is no hardware to buy or software to upgrade. You can also let someone else – namely the experts at Google – worry about maintaining high security standards (the best in the world) and reliability (99.9% uptime guaranteed).

Yes, our PapaSquad Google Apps technicians will help you get up and running smoothly with Google Apps. If you would like to migrate your existing email and/or documents and files from another product you are using, you can also opt to use our migration services. We highly recommend getting set up properly and ensuring your team’s success with their new solution.

When switching to Google Apps from another program or web service, you and your users can bring your existing mail, contacts, and calendar data with you. You have a variety of options for migrating data into Google Apps, depending on the size of your organization and the system you’re migrating from. Tools are available for migration from Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, IMAP servers and others.

Google Apps for Work customers are billed by HostPapa on an annual basis. All fees are calculated annually on a "per user" basis, with a “user” defined as one email account (as opposed to one domain).

Absolutely. This is one of the great benefits of Google Apps for Work. If you already have a company domain name, or need to create a new one, Google Apps can meet your needs. Each user at your domain will get a Google Apps account branded with your own domain name. Email addresses take the format "username@yourdomain.com" or "first.last@yourdomain.com", for example.

Setting up Google Apps through HostPapa couldn’t be easier. Once you’ve determined how many users you need and the domain name you’d like to use for Gmail, our PapaSquad Google Apps experts will be in touch to help you get set up and running!

Yes - Google Apps can be set up to work with Outlook and other email clients. Many clients enjoy this application – and this way, employees can use the interface they know and love, but you have the security of Google at work behind the scenes. Your employees are happy, and you get the savings and security benefits!

Google Apps Sync to Microsoft Outlook is a popular free plugin that enables your business to run Microsoft Outlook on Google Apps, instead of Microsoft Exchange.

HostPapa will also help with setting up syncing Google Apps with other clients, including Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and iCal. We’ll ensure you have all the information you need as you configure your Google Apps account.

In addition to accessing Google Apps mail from the Gmail web interface, you can send and receive mail from your own preferred desktop client. Depending on the client, you can use either the IMAP or POP mail protocol. If you’re switching to Google Apps from Microsoft Exchange or some other Outlook service, you can use Google Apps Sync. This is a plug-in for Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013 that lets you use Outlook to manage your Google Apps mail, calendar, and contacts, along with your Outlook notes, tasks, and journal entries.

Yes. As long as you own all of the domain names, no problem! Google Apps customers can associate up to 600 Internet domains with their Google Apps accounts.

Although each domain will remain an independent entity, Google Apps will recognize them as part of one umbrella account or organization. All the domains will be administered using the same Google Apps administrator control panel. Even though each domain has a separate set of user accounts, users belonging to any of the domains can share calendars and documents.

If your organization acquires a new domain name or does business at multiple domains, you can add all your domains to your account at no extra cost. Users can then have identities at one or more of your domains while sharing services as part of a single organization.

Google Apps for Work has a generous sending limit of 3,000 emails a day. This guideline is in place to prevent abuse, and to help fight spam. If you reach this limit, your account will be unable to send mail temporarily.

Google has one of the best spam blockers in the business, and it’s integrated into Google Apps. Spam is automatically purged every 30 days. There is built-in virus checking and enforce checking of documents before allowing a user to download any message.

Yes! A key benefit of Google Apps for Work is its anywhere, anytime accessibility. To meet that goal, your files and communications will be accessible from a variety of mobile phones, including BlackBerry devices, the iPhone, Windows Mobile, and many others. As part of your setup, HostPapa will provide you with the information necessary to help you sync your Google Apps account when you’re on the go.

All HostPapa Google Apps customers receive 24/7 support from our PapaSquad Google Apps experts. Our award-winning customer service and support is designed to help you keep your business running problem-free.

With Google Apps for Work, you'll receive a number of additional business-grade services not included in the free consumer product, including: professional email at your domain, additional storage across Gmail and Drive, 24/7 phone and email support, 99.9% guaranteed uptime, interoperability with Microsoft Outlook, enhanced security features, and full administration of all user accounts.

Yes. Google Apps is designed as an all-in-one solution with integrated tools that work seamlessly together. For instance, you can receive a message in Gmail and instantly convert it into a Calendar event. When you make a comment in Docs, Sheets or Slides, collaborators can automatically receive email alerts. With a single click, you can launch a Hangouts video meeting from your inbox or calendar. Using these tools as a complete package improves productivity while giving your business the most value. However, you are welcome to purchase the suite and use the various services at your discretion.

Many HostPapa customers have been able to eliminate their existing productivity suites and rely exclusively on Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. In fact, HostPapa’s own staff have done just that! Docs, Sheets and Slides are productivity tools that let you create different kinds of files, including text documents, spreadsheets and presentations. You can work on them in real time with other people and store them online in Google Drive. They’re included with Google Apps and work on any device. Unlike traditional desktop applications, there’s no software to install. They’re compatible with files made in other programs, such as Microsoft Office.

No. Google does not host websites or domains. HostPapa can help you redirect your Mail Exchange (MX) records to Google’s mail servers. If you need web hosting, we can also help there, too!

To set up email with Google Apps, you need to direct your domain’s mail flow to your Google Apps account. You do this by pointing your domain’s Mail Exchange (MX) records to Google. MX record changes can take up to 72 hours to go into effect, but they typically happen much sooner - even in as little as 2 hours. Therefore, we recommend making the switch on an evening or weekend when you receive fewer emails.

Manage your organization’s mobile devices - without the need for an on-premise device management server - using the Google Admin console. You can enforce policies over your users’ mobile devices and perform actions like remotely wiping phones or tablets.

You can be confident that your critical information is safe and secure with Google Apps. The information security team at Google includes some of the world’s top experts in information, network, and application security. Their job is to keep your information safe. Google is trusted with mission critical data from some of the world’s top corporations, and their reputation is impeccable.

When you sign up for Google Apps, you will also have access to a number of customizable security features, including:

  • Custom spam and inbound mail filtering tools
  • Custom information sharing rules to determine how broadly employees are allowed to share with Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Sites
  • Custom password length requirements and visual strength indicators to help employees pick secure passwords
  • Enforced SSL connections to ensure secure HTTPS access
  • Optional email archiving, with up to 10 years of retention

Google undergoes regular third-party security reviews and SAS 70 audits. Data is stored in both a primary and backup data centre, so if there’s a problem with one, all your information will be safe.

And remember: Google doesn’t claim ownership of your data, doesn’t share your data, keeps it as long as you want, and allows you to delete or move the data if you choose. Everything is safe and secure, but easy for you to access from anywhere, any device – at any time!

Still unsure? Here’s a video showing how Google keeps your business data safe:

You do! To quote directly from Google: "To put it simply, Google does not own your data. We don’t take a position on whether data belongs to individual users or the institution that signed up for Google Apps, but we know it doesn’t belong to us. The data you put into our systems is yours, and we believe it should stay that way. That means three key things: 1. We won’t share your data with others except as noted in our Privacy Policy. 2. We keep your data as long as you require us to keep it. 3. You should be able to take your data with you if you choose to use external services in conjunction with Google Apps or stop using our services altogether."

Your data is stored in Google’s network of geographically distributed data centres. Google’s computing clusters are designed with resiliency and redundancy in mind, eliminating any single point of failure and minimizing the impact of common equipment failures and environmental risks. Access to data centres is limited to select Google employees and personnel.

Yes. Data is virtually protected as if it were on its own server. Unauthorized parties cannot access your data. Your competitors cannot access your data, and vice versa. In fact, all user accounts are protected via this virtual lock and key that ensures that one user cannot see another user's data. This is similar to how customer data is segmented in other shared infrastructures, such as online banking applications.

Yes, we will be there for you! By purchasing Google Apps for Work from HostPapa, you get the full support of our PapaSquad Google Apps experts. This includes:

  • 24/7/365 multi-language support through chat, toll-free telephone, and our ticket help desk
  • Access to our searchable knowledgebase, including help articles and training videos
  • Complete Google Apps certified administrator assistance
