Personal Commentary

Why Use cPanel™ File Manager For Backups?

The biggest feedback I get from our customers is that FTP programs are hard to understand. I can imagine setting down in the cockpit of a jumbo airliner with all those buttons and instrument gauges. So much anxiety! This method makes it super simple and easy to click your mouse in various places and backup your website in a matter of minutes! You should have a backup and keep it updated every time you make a change to any of the files and folders.cockpit
