Creating a backup of your website
You need to backup your website on a regular basis, weekly or before and after you make any significant changes is recommended.

To backup your website, log into your cPanel (instructions in your hosting Email, this is NOT your Dashboard login).
The URL/link to access your cpanel will be
Use your cpanel username and password to enter your cpanel.
Navigate down to “Software/Services”, click on “Installatron Applications Installer”, then choose the  “Create Backup” icon and follow the prompts.

If you need to restore the website from a backup, you would click on the tab “My Backups”, then “Restore this backup”.

It only takes a few moments, but can save a LOT of work.
As an administrator of all websites I install, I will often “drop in” to your cpanel and create a backup on your behalf. Please do not rely on that, if you have important data, please ensure you do your backups, as suggested, before and after major changes. You can delete past backups if space becomes an issue. Old backups can be safely deleted, keep at least one backup at all times.
