I recently changed the way my hosting accounts are set up for my websites, merging them into one account. Unfortunately, when the GoDaddy rep called me to offer me this deal, I wasn’t at home and I wasn’t able to backup the contents of the hosting account I was cancelling.
“Sure, it’ll all still be there when you switch accounts.” says the GoDaddy rep. I am skeptical, but what the heck… let’s go for it!
It turns out, my skepticism was right. I lost everything I had on my personal site, and had to way to retrieve it. My own fault really, for trusting the GoDaddy guy.
Luckily, I was able to retrieve most of the content with the miracle of Google’s cache feature, but bare with me – it’ll take some time to get this place in tip top shape!
