Back up my website in my cPanel account

Updated Apr 8th, 2021 at 14:04 BST

You should always keep a full backup of your website — there's no other way to prepare for the unexpected. Here's how to manually create that backup file for websites on your Linux Hosting account.

From your client area go to:

Services -> My Services -> click on the green "Active" button -> Login to cPanel/Control Panel

In the account Dashboard, click cPanel Admin.

In the cPanel Home page, in the Files section, click Backup Wizard.

In the cPanel Backup Wizard page, click Back Up.

Click Full Backup.

If you want an email notification when the backup is done, below Generate a Full Backup enter your Email Address. If you don't want a notification select Do not send email notification of backup completion.

Click Generate Backup. cPanel creates the backup file in your Home Directory (and notifies you when it's done if you asked to be notified).

Related steps:

Download the backup file to your local computer. You can use this backup to restore your website if there's a problem.
