How to create a backup?


Backup is a new feature that was added on the 13th of Nov 2020 as it was highly requested by users.

General information

  • Backups are stored off-site from your node, so in case of a node-specific failure (Disk Failure, Meteor hitting the data center, etc) your backups should remain safe.
  • The feature is completely free and everyone has access to it, although, on the free plan you can only have 1 backup stored at a time, you will need to delete old backups to create new backups
  • Backups are not touched when you re-install or move your server (even if you pick the “Delete Files” option), so as long as you have a backup your fine.
