Restore my website from a Zip file in GoDaddy Pro

You can use a direct download link to the Zip file that contains a backup of your website to restore the website from GoDaddy Pro.

Note: Only backups created in GoDaddy Pro can be used for the restore process.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Pro account. (Need help logging in?)
  2. Select Sites in the left sidebar.
  3. Hover over the website and select Backups.
    Open Backups
  4. Select Restore from ZIP.
  5. Enter the URL that leads to a ZIP archive in Enter URL to zip archive.

    Note: When using a Dropbox download link, change dl=0 to dl=1 at the end of the URL to create a direct download link.

  6. Optional: In Create new admin, enter the new WordPress admin credentials. If this form is left blank, WordPress admin from the backup will be restored.
  7. Select Restore.
