The single best thing you can do to protect your website and hosting plan is to keep backups. These are critical if you make a big change to your site you don’t like, if your hosting is hacked, if you decide to move to another hosting provider, if a file gets corrupted or deleted by accident, and many other reasons. Basically, having a backup is the best fail safe out there.
How to backup your website
- Log into cPanel.
- Click Backup Wizard under Files.
- Click Backup on the left, then Full Backup.
- Leave the Backup Destination as home directory.
- Enter your email address and click Generate Backup.
It might take a while if you have a big site, but everything will be saved both in your hosting and emailed to you so you can save it in a safe place.
