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