Backup my website

This video and the instructions below it explain how to create a manual backup of your website in Website Builder 7.

Note: Your site is automatically backed up whenever you publish it, select a new theme, or restore it.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
  2. Click Edit Site, then click the three-bar icon in the top right corner of your screen and select Site Settings.
  3. Click the Backup/Restore tab, and then click Create Backup.
  4. Once the new backup is created, click OK to close the window.

Note: Website Builder stores up to five manual backups, replacing the oldest one each time. Automatic backups do not count as part of your five manual backups. There's no time limit on using the backups. To use a backup to recover your site, see Restore Site from Backup Files. (In version 6, go to Site tab > Manage tab > Backup/Restore.)
