How to create a full backup of my website?

You can download your website files using File Manager in Site Tools, or via FTP if your site consists of many files. If you are creating a backup of your primary website, you will need to download the files located in the public_html directory which is the document root folder of your account’s main domain.

Every other additional site (subdomain) has its own document root folder. Their respective website files need to be downloaded from the respective folder.

SiteGround also creates automatic backups on all Shared and Cloud hosting solutions and keeps them for a period of up to 30 and 7 days respectively.
