How to Backup a Website | GoDaddy


You worked hard to create a great website, so it’s important to protect your site by regularly backing it up. This video explains how. A back up is essentially a copy of your site
from a specific point in time. Website Builder 7 automatically backs up your
site whenever you publish it or change the theme. However, it’s also a good idea to manually
backup your site on a regular basis. To create a backup, open your site in Website Builder, click the 3-bar Manage Site icon, and then click Site Settings. In the Site Settings window, click the Backup/Restore tab. The Backup/Restore tab displays a list of
recent backups of your site. In this example, there are three automatic backups and two manual backups. To create a new back up, just click Create Backup and there it is. Website Builder can hold only five manual backups at a time. If you reach this limit, you can always create room for a new backup by deleting an existing manual backup. The automatic backups created when you publish or switch themes don’t count toward your limit of five. You can edit the name of a manual backup by
clicking the Edit icon. It’s useful to preserve the backup date and time in case you need to restore your site to a specific version. When you are done renaming the backup, click OK. Your website is a critical part of your business. So each time you work on it, take a minute and back it up.
