Creating, downloading, and restoring from WordPress backups
System backups are created automatically every day for all hosting accounts and kept for seven days on our servers; however, we would recommend that you always create manual backups before making any major changes to your WordPress websites.
To create, download, or restore from a WordPress backup, all you need to do is:
- Go to the hosting Control Panel's WordPress section.
- Find the desired WordPress installation in the list, and click on the (Edit) button next to it. This will take you to the management page for the WordPress installation.
- In the Backup section, click on the Backup button at the bottom to create a new backup, or click on the Download or Restore buttons next to a backup to download or restore your WordPress installation from that backup.
The backups generated from the WordPress section are stored in the wp_backups directory of your account's Private directory.
By design, the WordPress section generates a backup before performing operations which may break your website or affect its uptime after completion (like changing the Site URL or setting a staging website as live). In such events, you can restore your website with a single click from the automatically created backup and minimize restoration efforts.
