Web Site Hosting Features: Archive Manager

 

Overview

The Archive Manager allows you to compress and/ or extract any files from your home directory. For example, if you have a number of files that you wish to backup, you may select all the files, then create a backup file that contains all of them in a compressed format.

Backups are an important precaution against loss or corruption of your files. If something happens to your domain, you may use these files to restore it to its original state. We advise that you store an extra copy of your backup off-network, just in case. Backups may also be used for archival purposes.

Note: The compressed file will count against your disk quota.
