Hosting Crashed- need to move FTP but can't access files

I have a 10-year-old Linux Hosting plan with 16 domains on it. It has melted/crashed/ceased to be and none of my websites are loading (for longer than a few seconds if at all).


I bought a new Business CPanel Hosting through GoDaddy but I can't even access my FTP long enough to download the files to make the transfer.


I've talked to GoDaddy support a few times but keep getting "Oh this is weird, but I can fix it... Nope that didn't work, let me try this.... Nope that didn't work. Well, here another idea you should go try on your own."


The bottom line is I can't access the files through FTP. Is there any other way to get them? Any software or service out there than can extract them from the website for me?


Hi @youhave2guess, thanks for posting.

Without knowing the exact errors you are seeing, it's hard to say what the issue might be. I suggest trying a different FTP client to access your hosting plan, or to try from another computer/network.
