How can I backup my website?

Backing up your website and databases literally takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and can save a lot of pain and heartache down the line! Why not setup a reminder on your phone or in Outlook so you don't forget to run a backup.

QiQ offer two forms of web hosting. The procedure to take a backup will vary slightly depending upon when your account was opened:

Simply log in to your hosting account control panel ( and select either "Backup" or "Backup Wizard" from the menu. The wizard will provide a step by step guide to backing up all content, where the backup option will enable you to select which content is backed up.
