Gen 4 VPS & Dedicated Servers Help

Restore my Gen 4 VPS from a backup

You can restore your Generation 4 VPS from a manual or automatic backup at any time.

Required: You need to already have at least one manual (on-demand) or one automatic backup file to restore the server this way.
  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account. (Need help logging in?)
  2. In your My Products page, click Servers.
  3. Next to the Generation 4 VPS you want to restore, click Manage.
  4. In the top left corner of the account Dashboard, select Backups.
    select backups
  5. In the On Demand or Automatic section, click the three-dot icon for the file you want to restore from, and select Restore.

    Note: The On-Demand shows your manual backups (if you have any), and the Automatic section shows automatic backups we've made for you.

  6. Read the explanation so you can be sure this is what you want. To continue, enter a New Password to use with the restored server. This can be the same password as you're using right now, or a completely new password - it's up to you. Either way, the password must meet the requirements shown.
  7. Enter the new password in the Confirm Password field.
  8. Click Restore. We'll restore your server using the backup file. This may take a few minutes, and when we're done you'll be in the settings page for the restored server.
