How to backup your complete website

July 2nd, 2014

It is rare but there is always a possibility for your website getting hacked if it is not properly secured. There are times that one can mess up some code which could result in the website to crash. For all such times we will need to rely on our trusted backups. But how do you backup you entire website? Let’s take a look.

  1. First, login to your cPanel and click “Backup Wizard”BackUp_Website_SpeedHost
  2. Once in Backup Wizard, click “backup” This will backup all your email accounts, files, and a few other things along your MySQL databases. BackUp_Website_SpeedHost(2)
  3. In the next step it will ask you for a “Full or Partial Backup.” You can choose to go with either one of the two options.

[Note: A full backup will create an archive of all the files and configurations on your website. You can only use this to move your account to another server, or to keep a local copy of your files.]

That’s it; you have successfully backed up your website. These backups should definitely give you a peace of mind. You can setup a calendar to regularly backup up your website so that you have the most up to date data when you most need it.
