cPanel Account Backup
Posted by on 03 July 2012 11:22 AM

A full cPanel account backup creates a single file with all of your website files, databases, email accounts, cPanel configuration, Softaculous installation data, and more. This single file can be uploaded to any cPanel server and restored so that the account will function exactly like it did at the time of the backup.

ASO servers run a backup script once per day to create a full cPanel backup of each account on the server. Each backup is overwritten every 24 hours. Contact us if you need to see what backups are available for your account.
