Backup

The Backup feature in cPanel allows you to take a backup of your entire cPanel account or parts of it. The backup can be made to your cPanel’s home directory or remote storage via FTP or SCP. You can restore your partial backups here as well. A full backup requires root access, so your hosting provider may need to do this for you if you have shared hosting.
