How Do I Backup My Website?

Entire accounts can be backed up by doing the following:

  1. Go to 'backup', under the 'Site Management' header in Cpanel.

  2. Underneath where it says "Full Backups", click on the link that says "Generate/Download a Full Backup"

  3. Select which method you wish to use, whether you want to copy the backup directly to another ftp server, or if you wish to generate the backup in your home directory of your account with us. If you don't know which to choose here, the first one (Home Directory) is usually the best choice

  4. Enter an email address.

  5. Only answer the other two questions if you are backing up to another FTP server.

  6. Press 'Generate Backup'.

Remember, this only backs up the files, you will need to make a separate backup for any databases!
