One Click Backup

Perform full or custom backups of your site with just one click. We don’t have issues with large files or databases thanks to our own archive format.

Reliable Restore

No backup is good if it cannot be restored. Our software has been tested in dozens of different environments and restoration is just as good as backup.


You can download any of your existing backups whenever you want. Also, you are able to import backups by using our wizard or just copying the files to the specified folder.

Upload to Cloud (PRO)

We provide an easy and reliable way to secure your irreplaceable documents and media: automatically upload them to any cloud of your choice.

Automatization (PRO)

Schedule your backup tasks to be performed automatically by your server. Your scheduled backups can also be customized and get uploaded to clouds.

Customization (PRO)

Any backup task can be fully customized. You choose the files/folders to back up, whether to backup database, clouds to upload to and more.

Background Mode (PRO)

When background mode is active, your backup/restore process will consume less CPU resources and therefore allow them to be used by other processes.

Mail Notifications (PRO)

By just entering your e-mail, receive notifications whenever a backup or restore process gets finished. You will be notified on both cases, success or failure.


Perform manual backup
If you want to create a backup manually, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the green “Perform manual backup” button.
  2. Select “Full backup” if you want to perform a full backup of your website (files and database), otherwise select “Custom backup” to be able to choose what you really want to backup.
  3. (PRO) Select “Upload to cloud” option if you want to upload your backup to any of your already connected clouds. Note: “Background mode” option will give you the possibility to backup in a low priority mode, consuming fewer resources from your system.
  4. Click on the “Backup” button to start the backup.
  5. You will be able to see the progress of each step and cancel the backup if needed.

Import backups from local computer
If you have an SGBP file in your PC and you want to import it into your website, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the blue “Import” button.
  2. Browse the file in your local computer. There are 2 things to notice here: a) the maximum upload size will vary depending on the server your website is running on, b) a path is indicated where you can easily upload your file using an FTP client of your preference (the file will be automatically detected).
  3. Press the “Upload” button and wait for your file to be uploaded.

Restoring is as easy as backing up. Just follow these instructions:

  1. Localize the backup file you want to restore from.
  2. Click on the green restore button.
  3. After confirmation, the restore progress will start. Note: it is highly recommended that you don’t do anything else during the restore progress, because the site is in alteration process and any secondary action can affect its correct restoration.

Authorize and connect to Google Drive or Dropbox (PRO)
If you want to be able to upload backups to cloud, you must authorize first:

  1. Go to the “Cloud” section.
  2. Turn on the switch of the cloud you want to enable.
  3. You will be redirected to the website in question (where you can grant access to your account).
  4. After that, you will be redirected back to your website, where the switch has turned on.
  5. Starting from now, you will be able to choose this cloud as an upload destination of your backup files. Note: you can change the name of the destination folder at the top of the “Cloud” section.

Authorize and connect to FTP (PRO)
Follow these instructions if you want to be able to upload your backups directly to your FTP server:

  1. Once in the “Cloud” section, turn on the switch next to FTP.
  2. Fill in the required data to be able to connect to your FTP server.
  3. Click on the “Save” button. A connection attempt will be made, and after success, the popup will close and the switch will turn on.

Automatization of backups (PRO)
If you want to schedule your backups, these are the steps to follow:

  1. Go to the “Schedule” section. Once there, you will see that the switch is turned off.
  2. Turn on the switch next to “Scheduled backup”.
  3. Select the frequency and time you desire. The other options are exactly the same as in manual backup popup.
  4. Hit the “Save” button and you are ready to go. Note: please make sure that cron is enabled and working on your server, otherwise scheduled backups won’t work.

Why is important to backup my website?

The majority of people value their digital content, but are still not backing it up regularly. More than 50% of adults, personally have and/or know someone who has lost files.

The fact is that, even though today’s technology is extraordinarily advanced and dependable, it can still fall subject to failure. So unless you have a routine backup solution, you’re at risk of losing all of your data at a moment’s notice.

How often should a backup be created?

It depends on how often data gets updated on your website. Maybe daily backups are not necessary and maybe monthly backups are not good enough, so the best way is measuring the amount of data that gets changed in your particular case.

What is included in the basic (free) plan?

JetBackup gives you the ability to backup or restore your website as many times as you want. You can also download your backups and import them in other websites where JetBackup is installed and running.

Why should I purchase a JetBackup premium version?

Although JetBackup gives you the ability to backup and restore your website as many times as you want, your backups will only reside on your server. With our premium plans you can upload your backups to the cloud of your preference, schedule your backups, receive notifications, and many other features.

That’s not all, if you are a premium user, you will receive 15-minute response time priority support by our industry leading support team 24/7/365.

JetBackup premium versions

What other platforms has JetBackup planned to support?

We currently support WordPress and Magento platforms, but with the help of our flexible and universal backup technology, multi-platform coverage is just around the corner. Prestashop and Joomla are next.

What are the minimum requirements for installing JetBackup?

Your hosting/server must have installed PHP 7.4 or higher with zlib library enabled.

Note: depending on the product you are using, there more be more requirements, that’s why we recommend you to check our products section for more details.

What are the limitations of the backup created by JetBackup?

Of course there is a limit regarding the size of the archive, but practically it is unreachable. We use our own SGBP archive format which compared to Zip doesn’t limit you to 4GB archive/file size or 65k of number of files.

It doesn’t matter if you are running 32-bit or 64-bit OS, if it’s Linux, Windows or Mac, everything is the same.

Something is not working, what should I do?

No software is perfect and we are not the exception. There are tons of different servers and configurations and something may go wrong in one of them.

When you are facing an issue of any kind with any of our products, the first thing to do is contacting us. We are here to help you, give you tips, advices and even create fixes/patches or features whenever needed.

How can I extract an SGBP file?

SGBP is our own archive format, therefore currently there is no software that can extract it.

Is it possible to migrate website using JetBackup?

Although we don’t offer a server migration feature on our free version, JetBackup creates an exact snapshot of the current state of your website and whenever you restore it, the exact same state gets restored. So practically, you can migrate your website with just downloading and importing your backup.

<!– wp:paragraph –> <p class=””>Backup Guard used to be ok. But since it has turned into JetBackup, it’s a mess. A lot of the time it stalls when started manually, automatic backups often don’t happen at all. Then sometimes success is reported, but the backup size is way too small, so it has obviously failed. There have been a few updates during the past year, but I’m not seeing improvements. Happening on various sites, different hosts, so not just one specific situation.<br>I’m surprised about the positive reviews here, apparently some people are luckier than me …</p> <!– /wp:paragraph –>
