Back up my Generation 4 server

Every week, we automatically create a backup for you. New backups overwrite the snapshot from the previous week.

If you like, you can manually create a backup any time. When you create a backup file manually, the previous manual backup file is overwritten.

Note: For the most accurate backup, we recommend you turn off the server first.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. In your My Products page, click Servers.
  3. Next to the Generation 4 server you want to back up, click Manage.
  4. Click the three-dot icon (next to Launch WHM) and select Stop Server.
    click three-dot icon
  5. Under Backups, next to Server Backups, click Manage.
    click manage to view my backup files
  6. Click On Demand and then click Create.
  7. Enter a Backup Name for the file. The filename must be 5 to 16 characters long, and may contain only letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscore characters.
  8. Click Backup Now. We'll create a backup file, and when we're done the new backup file name appears in the On Demand section.
