How to backup and restore a site?

Scheduled backups

Backups are automated (daily) and you will always be able to restore your site to any of these backup points. Note that Custom plan owners can request a custom backup frequency, as often as hourly backups.

Manual backups

Daily backups are being taken at a predefined time, you might want to backup your site manually before performing complex tasks or updates. This can be done at a click of a button, here are the steps:

  • Go to your dashboard
  • Click My sites
  • Click Manage for the site you wish to backup
  • Under the Backups tab, click Take backup now

  • Wait for the backup to finish (you are not required to stay on the page)
  • If everything goes well, you should see "Backup successful"
