Restore SQL Server Database - Not Valid

I'm trying to get one of my clients to switch to Godaddy.  I need to be able to restore their SQL DB to Godaddy.  When I upload a valid 2005 backup file (successfully restored to my local 2016 SQL Server) I get the attached message telling me the backup file is not valid.  I'm perplexed to say the least.

Hi @sberringer,

 

There are big differences and not all SQL databases are the same. Make sure they are compatible and not outdated (2005.... ?).

You don't say types of database, not all are supported by godaddy.
