5.0 review rating Sean S says...

quote Does exactly what it is supposed to do, and that is work! Godaddy is TOO restrictive on everything, but with this tool you can get it up there, running, and get it done NOW! It took my site about 1/2 hour, with all the adjustments I had to make, but the software is quick, and the instructions are clear. Worth the money, get it if you are on godaddy and you plan to move your site from a non-godaddy machine to them (for the first time or not). Remeber you cannot RESTORE a DB that is backuped on a NON-GODADDY server, but with this, no problem...
