Types of Website Backups
There are several types of backups that you can do. The difference between this backup process lies in its purpose and usage. As for website backups you can do:
1. Full Backup
Full backup is done if you want to migrate from hosting A to hosting B. Either the same or different hosting service provider. Because this full backup will make a copy of all website data such as file directories, website configurations, MySQL databases, as well as email forwarder and email filtering configurations. Usually, if you want to migrate your website from another hosting to KincaiHosting or vice versa, the full backup process must be done correctly.
2. Partial Backup
Partial backup is done if you only want to move some parts of the website. For example, backup website files only. Or just backup the database.

3. Backup For Manual Migration
Well, this backup is usually done if you want to:
- move website files from domain A to domain B (still in 1 hosting),
- move the website files that have been added, to another domain / subdomain,
- move website files from domain to subdomain or vice versa,
- manual website migration to a different hosting.
In essence, this backup process has 2 stages, namely backing up the website files into a .zip form and exporting the database. First, you have to compress the website files into .zip form. Then export the database into .sql form. So you will have a .zip backup file and a .sql database file. The two files will later be restored to the destination hosting / domain.
To do this backup, you can immediately follow the step by step in the guide on How to Migrate a Manual Website
