Windows Hosting (Plesk) Help

Recycle the application pool in my Windows Hosting

By default, recycling the application pool in Windows Hosting happens every 29 hours, to help prevent memory leaks, application crashes, and other issues. Here's how to recycle the application pool manually - for example, right after you change PHP settings.

Note: Manually recycling the application pool can negatively affect your viewers' experience, so follow these steps with caution.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Select Web Hosting, and next to the Windows Hosting account you want to use select Manage.
  3. In the account Dashboard, select Plesk Admin.
  4. Select Dedicated IIS Application Pool for Website.

    Note: If you don't see any icons, in the center of the page select Show More, and then select Dedicated IIS Application Pool for Website.

  5. Select Recycle.
