How can I create a backup of my website?

This article applies to 123-reg Web Hosting and 123-reg Premium Hosting packages.

This article will explain how to create a backup of your website through your 123-reg Hosting package

Please note: This functionality is only available for the Professional level hosting packages. 

To backups your files:


Login to your 123-reg control panel.


Scroll down to the Web Hosting section and click the Manage button.


Scroll down to the Files section and click the File Manager button.


To create a backup of your entire site, click on the Create Full Backup button. To only create a backup of a certain section of your site, select a directory from the Directory dropdown menu and click on the Create Partial Backup button.

Please note: This only backs up the web site files (as available via FTP). This means, for example, that databases are not backed up here: you can modify and back them up from the databases page.
