Should I store a local copy of my website? Print

It is essential to keep a local copy (on your home or office computer) of your website to protect it from any number of disasters. It is very easy to backup your files, databases, email forwarders (aliases), and email filters in cPanel under 'Site Management' and 'Backup' or 'Backup Wizard'. You can also use a cron job to regularly backup your databases.

Please do not store backups inside your Cpanel account. Download them to your local computer as soon as possible.
