Choose how many GBs of space you want to buy for your backup (The space must be at least the occupied space from your website, if you want to do more than 1 copy you have to calculate the space you need.  Example - if your site is 2 GBs and you want to do 6 copies, you have to buy 6 GBs of space)


The first years price is calculated from how many days are left from the expiring date. When you have to renew the domain the price will be 5,00 €/GB

A backup can be done automatically or can be planified. We recommend to set the lifetime of a backup file so that the webspace does not end. Configuration example in the following images:



The backup can be done manually without planning it. remember to select "FTP archiving".
