How to backup your website files

October 9th, 2012

Everyone should backup their websites regularly! It is quick and easy and will give you peace of mind.

But why should I back up my own site? Doesn’t Doteasy backup my website anyways?

Yes, we do backups of your website, but the backups are mainly for our benefit, for example, the server crashes completely and we need to restore all the websites from that server onto a new one. All of the files from a server backup would be jumbled together. Also, when we perform our backups, it may not be the moment you make changes to your websites. So our backups may not include the latest changes of your websites.

Basically, our requirements for keeping backups of your server are different from your requirements for keeping a backup of your website. So, it is always good to make your own backups.

It’s very easy to do backup in cPanel. We’ve prepared a simple video tutorial for your guidelines. Hope you find it helpful!

Lack of time to do backups?

We know that a lot of our cusotmers do not have the time to do regular backups. May we suggest our Managed Hosting plan which helps you perform automated backup service. In addition, our Managed Hosting plan helps customers import, export, and optimization of the MySQL databases. For more info, please visit our service page for full details!

How to upload and unzip files through the File Manager of your Doteasy cPanel

February 16th, 2012

As mentioned earlier in our blog post, it is very common that online users store their passwords in their FTP programs. Although such practice is very convenient, if their computers are infected with virus, the virus can examine the infected computers and FTP program. Hackers can then access to the FTP program and find the credentials (and you can imagine the rest of the story). Hence, it is strongly recommended NOT to use the “remember passwords” function in FTP program and internet browsers. In this blog post, we will showcase another alternative to prevent passwords stolen.

FTP is a useful tool for transferring files from webmasters’ computers to their websites. Many webmasters choose to upload their files to their websites through FTP program. In fact, in Doteasy’s cPanel, there is another useful tool called File Manager which lets you manage your web files using a web browser rather than a third-party FTP program. The below video tutorial teaches you how to upload and unzip files to your website through File Manager.
