Someone stole my account

I recently changed by business emails to my Google for Business account. I have only had it for a couple months. I awoke on June 30 and found that my emails didn't work. It turns out they somehow hacked by GFB account, took over my email and then used it to steal my domain at godaddy. I could no longer sign into GFB. I would be really interested to know how someone could steal my account that easy. Is there any support line for GFB that deals with stolen accounts? I have godaddy on the trail of recovering my domain. but I really want to know how I got hacked at GFB. I know I hadn't yet set up 2-factor authentication, but regardless, Google must have records of someone changing passwords on June 29 or 30. Can anyone help?
