HostMonster Web Hosting Help

Automatic Backup Frequency

This article applies to Legacy accounts only. Site Backup Pro is not available to users on Rock accounts. For more information, please see Rock vs Legacy.

We do offer complimentary backups for our customers. They are created on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. These backups are not guaranteed in any way. We highly recommend all HostMonster customers create and manage their own backups.

The best option is to create your own weekly backups and store them locally on your home machine or burn them to disk. Please see our article: Download a full cPanel backup using the Site Backup & Restore tool for information on downloading a backup of your account or site.
