Recently I made a critical error editing one of my blog’s files – I forgot to download the file before editing it, then uploaded my changes and it took my entire blog down. Needless to say I was upset with myself because I knew better, but I called GoDaddy hoping they could restore my site or file for me, and hoping it wouldn’t cost much or take too much time.
The tech support operator ran me through their procedure on restoring a file or folder using the GoDaddy File Manager. I was able to select the day before I changed the file, and download it, back it up (this time), apply my edits and my blog was down for less than 20 minutes (about 10 minutes of that time was spent running around like a headless chicken while my wife and girls looked at me as if I had just landed on the planet).
So, if you delete a file or folder by accident, forget to download a file before editing it and permanently lose your work, remember GoDaddy’s File Restore and get your stuff back. Thanks GoDaddy!
GoDaddy has improved their visible image in one fell swoop with the launch of a new site design. Although the Domain Manager section of the site was redesigned in look and function sometime last year, the rest of the site lagged behind. Now its seems that has changed, and like the Domain Manager’s update last year, the new design is more than skin deep. While its true that GoDaddy’s new look is less cluttered, and has a more progressive look, the site also has improved functionality in the form of flyout menu and tooltips.
Beyond the fact that the new menus are more visually appealing, when you log in you’ll notice that they also provide improved visual feedback. As you roll over the buttons, they change – a welcome upgrade from the old. Speaking of login, the login and log out has been better implemented and, at least in my opinion, sits exactly where I’d expect to find it. I must say the new look is also just, well COOLER. Yep, its waaay cooler.
If you’re looking for a web host, give GoDaddy a try!
