Using Backups in Website Builder

Website Builder Premium includes Backup & Restore for free. With Backup & Restore you can make backups of your web space, database, email and Website Builder projects.

Getting started with Backup and Restore

With the built-in backup function in Website Builder you can restore your project to a previously saved version. Every time you save your website in Website Builder, a backup is made. You can keep up to 200 saved versions of your website.

Safely try out different layouts and designs. If you don't like the result, you can revert to a previous version with just a few clicks.

Note: Images and videos that you upload yourself, are not part of the backup in Website Builder. These images and videos are by default stored on your web space, in a folder called 'onewebmedia'. We recommend that you make a separate backup of the content on your web space regularly.
