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)
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
