Updated over a week ago

If you have a backup of your website in a compressed archive such as .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz, .tar.lz4, or and it's less than 100GB, you can easily upload it using the File Manager.


In your Hostinger account, go to Websites, find the website in question, and click on Manage. Then, search for File Manager on the left sidebar, and click on it:
