Everyone should backup their websites regularly! It is quick and easy and will give you peace of mind.


But why should I back up my own site? Doesn’t Doteasy backup my website anyways?

Yes, we do backups of your website, but the backups are mainly for our benefit, for example, the server crashes completely and we need to restore all the websites from that server onto a new one. All of the files from a server backup would be jumbled together.

Basically, our requirements for keeping backups of your server are different from your requirements for keeping a backup of your website. So, it is always good to make your own backups.

There are a few ways to backup your Doteasy website:

  • FTP
  • Site Admin Panel
  • phpMyAdmin

FTP

Start your FTP client as you would to upload your files. However, with a backup, you will be transferring (or downloading) files from your server to your computer.

FTP


Site Admin Panel (Ultra/Unlimited Hosting AND websites less than 500mb)

With this option, you will be using the Export function in your Site Admin Panel to backup your website (including web files and database).

You can login to your Site Admin Panel via the login link in your Member Zone.

Site Admin Panel

1. Once you have logged into your Site Admin Panel, select the Export/Import function from the Menu.

2. On the Export tab, select the type of export and the mode of transfer desired.

*Note* The Download mode is recommended for exporting small files to your local computer. Large files may take a long time to transfer depending on the quality of your Internet connection. Use the FTP mode for a faster and more reliable transfer for larger files.


Manual Download (for websites larger than 500MB)

If your website is larger than 500MB, you can contact us to schedule a manual monthly backup for your website. This manual backup is free and once started, will run monthly.

Once you have contacted us, our scheduler will backup your entire website (including web files and database) every month. The backup file will then be uploaded to your FTP account for you to download.


MySQL Database-only (PHP/MySQL, Ultra/Unlimited Hosting)

For clients with the PHP/MySQL optional feature or are on the Ultra or Unlimited Hosting plans, if you need to backup your databases only, you can easily do so using phpMyAdmin.

1. Login to phpMyAdmin via the MySQL Administration Tool link in your Site Admin Panel.

MySQL

2. Click on the Export link

phpMyAdmin

3. In the Export box in the upper left corner, select all databases you wish to back up.

4. Check the box next to Save as file and click on the Go button.

5. A download window should pop up asking you where you’d like to save the file, choose a location, rename the file to something suitable and click OK.

*Note* If your database is large, it may be a good idea to save each of the databases individually. Also, saving them all in one file means you'll need to separate them if you don’t want to restore them all at the same time


Installed Applications

If you have installed Wordpress, Drupal and/or Joomla on your website, you can refer to the following sites for more information on backups:

What goes on behind the scenes at Doteasy? Well, we've been busy with the preparation work for the SmartMail upgrades.

There's actually a lot that needs to be done for the SmartMail upgrades on both the hardware and on the software. Our technicians need to do countless hours of preparation work before an upgrade can take place.

First, hardware needs to be tested to see which type would perform the best with the SmartMail software. This testing phase was not a easy stroll in the park. It actually takes a lot of time to test every aspect of the hardware with the software to ensure that everything is running smoothly.

Adding new servers to a data center is no easy task. A lot of preparation work needs to be done before we can hook all the new servers up. We need to figure out where we can place the new servers, and also upgrade our cooling system and our electrical circuits to accomodate the new servers. Just to give you an idea on how big this project is, we have already spent several hundred thousands dollars on hardware and data center upgrades alone!

Secondly, in addition to testing the performance of the hardware, we also need to test the performance of the software. Before we can release the SmartMail system, we had to make sure there are no bugs or any other “surprises”. Documentation also had to be prepared so that you guys can learn more about the new SmartMail system and get the most out of it. All this work needs to be done before any upgrades can take place. As you can see, these past few weeks have been quite hectic. Hopefully, our efforts will not go to waste and everyone will be able to enjoy the new SmartMail system.
