Change your data center

To improve the speed of your website for its primary audience, you should choose the data center located closest to them geographically. While you can choose the data center when you set up your account, you might want to change it afterward.

GoDaddy provides one free data center migration for every account, but additional migrations must be paid for.

Warning: Your website will experience downtime while it's being migrated between data centers. Unfortunately, there is no way to circumvent the downtime.
  1. The first step depends on which application you're using:
    Application Step
    cPanel From the cPanel home page, in the Data Center Region area, click Change.
    Gateway In the area of the domain you want to use, click Settings, and then the Data center tab.
  2. Select the data center you want to use, as well as the best time for your site to experience downtime for the migration.
  3. Click Migrate or Start migration and complete any necessary purchases.

We will email you to confirm your migration, once it starts, and once it's complete.
