Restore my Generation 4 server from a backup

You can restore your Generation 4 server from a manual or automatic backup at any time.

Required: You need to already have at least one manual (on-demand) or one automatic backup file to restore the server this way.
  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. In your My Products page, click Servers.
  3. Next to the server you want to restore, click Manage.
  4. Under Backups, next to Server Backups, click Manage.
  5. Click On Demand (to see the backup files you created manually) or click Automatic (to see the backup files we created for you).
  6. Click the three-dot icon for the file you want to restore from, and select Restore.
  7. Read the explanation so you can be sure this is what you want. To continue, enter a New Password to use with the restored server. This can be the same password as you're using right now, or a completely new password - it's up to you. Either way, the password must meet the requirements shown.
  8. Enter the new password in the Confirm Password field.
  9. Click Restore. We'll restore your server using the backup file. This may take a few minutes, and when we're done you'll be in the settings page for the restored server.
