You can either restore the VPS from a backup, which is created every week (or every day if you have daily backups product) or a snapshot, which you choose when you want to save your VPS state and data at a specific point in time.

Managing VPS backups

To check your backups, please visit the Servers tab in your Control panel → choose your VPS server → click on Backups tab:

There you'll see all our available backups and restore them within a few minutes:

Managing Snapshots

We offer the ability to create snapshots. A snapshot is a copy of the VPS state, exactly as it is at the moment the snapshot is taken. The state includes the virtual machine’s power state (for example, powered-on, powered-off) and the data of all of the files that make up the virtual machine. This includes disks, memory, and anything extra.

To create a snapshot, please visit the Servers tab in your Control panel → choose your VPS server → click on Create Snapshot button:

To restore it, you need to click on the Restore Snapshot button:

That's it! Now you know how to manage your VPS backups 😊

NOTES:

  • The backup/snapshot restoration will overwrite all your files (not replacing only the missing ones for example)

  • After the restoration, your server will be brought back to the state it was at the moment of backup/snapshot creation. All the changes that were done after the backup/snapshot date will be reverted

  • Backups or snapshots cannot be downloaded directly, although you can use FTP to download the files to your computer

  • Your snapshot will be lost if you change or choose your VPS operating system
