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:

  • 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.

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.
