We’ve all had those moments of regret after accidentally deleting a file or making an unwanted change. But with the right tools, especially when using Elementor Hosting, you can breathe easily. Let’s explore the different Elementor backup solutions and see how they can be your website’s safety net.

Introduction to Elementor Backup

Building a website is a journey. Each piece, each decision, matters. But what if something goes awry? That’s where the magic of backups, especially with Elementor, comes into play.

The Basics of Backups

Backups are your safety net. They ensure that:

  • Page-level Backups
    You can revert changes made to specific pages.
  • Complete Website Backups
    Your entire site, with all its intricacies, is safe and sound.

Traditional Restore Methods

There are several ways to ensure your website’s safety:

  • History Feature in Elementor
    Allows you to see recent actions and revert a few steps.
  • Revisions in Elementor
    Provides a snapshot of older versions of a page.

The Need for Complete Website Backups

For a robust safety net, you need more than just page-level backups:

  • Backing up the entire website ensures all plugins, data, structure, and settings are safe.
  • Some folks rely on hosting companies for backups, while others opt for backup plugins. However, many hosting companies might offer backup services only in their premium plans or at an extra charge. On the other hand, while there are free backup plugins available, to access all their features, such as restoring the backup or storing it in the cloud, you often need to upgrade to a paid plan.

Elementor Hosting Backup Feature

Elementor Hosting ensures your website’s safety with its backup feature:

  • Your site gets an automatic daily backup.
  • Each backup is stored for up to 30 days.

Creating a Manual Backup in Elementor Hosting

Here’s how to create your own backup:

  1. Open your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Hover over the hosting options and select ‘backups’.
  3. This takes you to your backups on your Elementor Account dashboard.
  4. Click ‘create new backup’ on the top right.
  5. Name your backup, keeping it relevant to its purpose.
  6. Click ‘backup now’.

Restoring Your Website from an Elementor Backup

Having backups is great, but knowing how to use them is key:

  1. Head to your Elementor Account dashboard.
  2. Hover over the hosting options and select ‘backups’.
  3. Decide which backup version you want to restore.
  4. Click ‘restore’ next to that backup.
  5. Wait for a short while as your site restores to the chosen version.
