How to pause backups

If you wish to pause the backup so it doesn't run — you can always unpause later — do the following:

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Website Security and Backups, next to the domain you want to restore, select Manage.
  3. Under Backups, select Details.
  4. Select the horizontal three dot menu More menu in the upper-right corner above the Backup Now button.
  5. Select Pause backup.

To unpause the backup so that it will run again, follow the steps above and select Un-pause backup.
