GoDaddy SFTP fails to connect?

If your FTP tool fails to connect to GoDaddy’s “awesome” server, first thing you should do is check the error log.

If it says something like “Cannot connect to the server/Cannot find server” or similar, go to the site settings in the FTP program and change the target host from the site’s URL to the server’s IP.

That should fix it. If you see password issues afterwards, you just need to set the proper passwords.
