If your website is created with Hostinger Webiste Builder, refer to this article instead: Website Builder: How to Create and Restore Website Backups 💡

At Hostinger, if your hosting plan is Business or greater, you can use the Backup tool to manually create backups of all the files and databases on your hosting plan. Just go to Websites → Manage, search for Backups on the sidebar, and click on it:

The Backups menu option

Once there, click Select on the Generate new backup option:

The Generate new backup option and how to select it

Next, click on Proceed, and the backup will start to be prepared. The process can take a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the number and size of files and databases in your hosting plan.

Once the files and database backups are generated, you will be able to download them to your device or use them to perform a restoration.

You can generate a new backup using this method once every 24 hours. If your hosting plan does not include this feature, consider upgrading it 🚀
