Title: How can I create a backup of my website?
In this video, we will show you how simple it is to back up your website using your Web Hosting Control Panel.
To begin, log into your 123-reg control panel using your username and password.
Now scroll down to Web hosting and click on the manage button.
This is your Web Hosting control panel and if you click on File Manager you can access your website files.
Ok, so to back up an individual website file, simply highlight the file and click open.
Your file will start to download on your web browser.
Once it’s done, just save it in a back-up folder on your computer.
Ok, to back-up all of your files at once, you will first need to highlight them all by clicking select all.
Now click on pack, you can then give the folder a name.
It’s a good idea to give it a clear name so you can easily find it later on.
Select the zip option and click on pack.
This will create a zip folder of your website files.
Now click on this folder, and then click on open.
Your files will start to download on your web browser.
Once it’s complete, just save it into a folder on your computer.
If you have a Professional Hosting package, you should see this Backup/Restore option in your Web Hosting control panel.
Open it up, and here you’ll see a Create full backup option.
Clicking on this button makes a full backup of your website files.
This option allows you to create a backup for just part of your website.
So you can simply select the name of the directory folder you wish to backup, and then click the create partial backup button.
You can then save it onto your computer once it has downloaded.
That’s it, you’ve seen just how easy it is to back up your website.
It’s a good idea to regularly back-up your website when you make important changes, so you always have an up-to-date copy.
