Docx2doc.com Downtime due to Godaddy DOS Attack

Although Docx2doc.com does not use Godaddy to host our web site, we did experience downtime because one service in particular uses the Godaddy service. The DNS (Domain Name Service) for Godaddy was down for hours yesterday making Docx2doc.com inaccessable because the the domain name could not be translated into and IP (Internet Protocol) address.

Your computer tries to find our site IP address when you type in www.docx2doc.com into your browser or click on a link. This service was not working because of the Denial of Services (DOS) attack on Godaddy and users subsequently could not go to our web site.

After several hours of downtime Monday it appears systems are back to normal. We apologize for any inconvenience.

New File Converter Search Tool

We use our own site quite often and as we keep adding file converters realized it is becoming harder and harder to find the one we want to use.

And the Docx2doc.com file converter search tool was born. With over 170 file converters it is now easy to located the exact one you need by using the search box located on just about every page. It's simple and easy to use, just type in something a quick file extension or phrase like the following:

docx to doc
convert to doc
to pd
convert from docx to doc
etc, etc...

This will give you a prioritized list of the file converters we support. Once you located the correct one just click on it to bring you to the page where you can upload your file to convert.

This will be a huge timesaver for everyone, and we look forward to using it a lot ourselves!

Convert CSV, XLSX, PPTX, VCARD and more

We have been working away trying to expand and improve our already huge file converter list. We added ouptut to XLSX and PPTX. We received a few requests to handle VCARD, so we added VCard to Excel, Vcard to CSV, Vcard to PDF, Vcard to HTML and a lot more.

  Also, while we were looking at the CSV we just went ahead and added all kinds of CSV input and ouptut converters just to cover it all.

 If you have any suggestions on what file converters we should have please contact us. In the meantime, please enjoy the new converters:

Convert PDF files to Text

You might receive a PDF file on a smartphone or computer without a PDF viewer available. No need to panic, Docx2doc.com can also extract just the text of a PDF file so you can see what is inside.

Of course, the PDF to Text Converter is done online, so it is not necessary to download programs or install untrusted software. Running unknown executables on your compter or smart phone may embedd a trojan horse or virus on your computer. By using the Docx2doc.com online converter, we eliminate this risk as we host the software converter program on our servers.

Of course, changing the PDF file to text does lose some formatting, but the text should be readable to give you a good idea what the PDF document is about. You can also convert the PDF file to MS Word Doc or Docx format to preserve some of the formatting.

If you wish to delete your file immediately you can select the '10 seconds' option which destroys your file while you wait.

Additionally, we offer an e-mail option so you can e-mail your converted file to yourself, a colleague, or friend.
