Backing Up Your Website

A post to all our lovely clients 🙂

Backing up your website is a lot like buying insurance, you know you should but it’s one of those things you put off because nothing has happened yet which surely means you don’t need it. But on one of those rare times when your site has a critical failure and loses some or all of your data, you’ll soon wish you had!

How to back up your website

Backing up your website is really quick and easy and completely free through your control panel (for your login details please contact us directly)

Backing up your website files:
– Log in to your control panel
– In ‘files’ click on ‘backup/ restore

Backing up your database
You should also back up your MySQL databases with just one click!
– Log in to your eXtend control panel
– In ‘Web tools’ click on ‘MySQL Databases
– In ‘Manage MySQL Databases’ choose which databases you want to back up and click ‘Now’

Backing up your website and databases literally takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and can save a lot of pain and heartache down the line! Why not setup a reminder on your phone or in Outlook so you don’t forget to run a backup.
