Backing Up Your Website Using Cpanel

Backing up your website regularly is important. As you know we regularly back up all websites on our cloud servers but you should ALWAYS have a full backup of your site on your computer just as a safeguard.

It is especially important to take a full backup before updating ANY programme or script that runs your site. Things like WordPress, Cubecart, Opencart or any other web script. By taking a full backup should something go wrong with your updates the old version can be restored quickly.

Below is a video to show you how to backup both your sites files and your databases.

Remember you can make this video full screen by clicking this icon at the bottom right of the video.
