1. How do I take and manage backups?

WP Hosting backups are managed on the Backups tab of each individual site.

To get to the Backups tab:

  1. Log in to the Account Control Center (ACC)
  2. Click WordPress in the left sidebar
  3. Click List Sites in the drop-down
  4. Click on the Nickname of the site you’d like to backup
  5. Click the Backups tab

Once there, you can see a list of existing backups with timestamps, and buttons to create a backup immediately or delete old backups.

2. How do I schedule or automate backups?

In order to perform scheduled or automated backups, please consider using a trusted WordPress backups plugin.

3. Do backups count against my account’s storage space?

Yes.

4. What is backed up?

Our backup system makes a dump of the database, and backs up all WP files in its installation directory as well as pair’s metadata about the installation itself.
