cPanel backups are a feature that allows you to create backup copies of your hosting data and configurations.
With cPanel, you can schedule and perform full or partial backups of your hosting account. You can choose the frequency of backups, such as daily, weekly, or monthly, and specify the directories and databases to include.
In the event of data loss, technical issues, or the need to restore a previous version of your site, cPanel backups enable you to easily recover your data. You can restore files and databases from the backups through the user-friendly cPanel interface.
It is highly recommended to set up regular backups and store them outside of the main hosting server for maximum data protection. cPanel backups provide peace of mind by ensuring the availability of backup copies of your website in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
