Website Backups & Restore

Protect your website's data and ensure its availability with regular backups and expert help restoring your backups

Protect your website and business from downtime with our backup and restore services

Your website contains valuable information and data that is essential for the operation of your business. Unfortunately, unexpected events such as hacking, human errors or server crashes can lead to the loss of this data resulting in significant downtime and financial losses. That’s why it’s critical that you regularly backup your website and have those backups available to be restored easily, that is where we come in. WP Runner can set up automated external backups for you and ensure that a restore is not far away in case of issues.

Our Website backup service allows you to schedule regular backups of your website’s important data, stored in a secure, off-site location, ensuring that your data is safe and accessible. Our expert technicians are also on standby to help you restore your backups in case of any emergency. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your website’s data is protected and can be easily restored, minimising downtime and financial losses.

Get started with our unlimited website plans, website security protection, speed optimisation and fast onboarding.

How does our backup service work?

We try to keep our process simple to allow you to get started working with us quickly and without friction.

Our backup service works by regularly creating a copy of your website’s data, including its files, databases, and settings, and storing it in a secure, off-site location. The frequency of the backups are generally daily or weekly depending on your support plan.

The backups are done using specialised software that automates the process of copying and archiving your website’s data with zero website downtime.

In the event of any data loss, such as a hacking incident or server crash, you can contact our support team to restore your website using the most recent backup. Our expert web developers will perform the process and ensure that your website is fully restored and functional.

That’s how we keep the process of working with us simple and work moving forward.

Common questions about website backup and restore


How often are website backups performed?

We perform website backups either daily or weekly, depending on your website support plan listed on our pricing and sign up page. We generally recommend doing backups at least weekly if your website is low traffic and does not change very often or daily for high traffic websites

Is there a limit to the amount of backups?

We generally keep backups for a maximum of 90 days as we find there is no need to restore a backup from longer than 90 days (its usually too old to restore). However we are generally happy to provide you with a copy of any backups we hold if you want to store them for longer on your own.

Can you do other tasks beyond backup work?

Yes! Our team can help with other tasks such as general website tasks, fixing bugs, adding new features and even larger tasks such as a full website redesign. Contact us to discuss with our friendly team.


How do I get updates on work in progress?

Your website developer will send regular updates, drafts and screenshots and where relevant will request clarifications as part of our detailed quality control process. We will demo work we are doing for you where necessary and get your feedback as often and early as possible.

What does unlimited website support mean?

Our support plans include unlimited website support tasks. This is not a trick, our plans allow you to send unlimited tasks with very few limitations such as the size of the task or number of open at one time.

Can I try your service?

Yes! We offer a 7 day moneyback guarantee so you can try our service and if you're not satisfied we'll refund your initial payment, no questions asked. There are also no lock in contracts or hidden fees for using our service.

What does a good website backup strategy look like?

  1. Regular Backups: Scheduling regular backups of your website is one of the most effective ways to ensure that your data is protected. We recommend either daily or weekly depending on your needs and the rate at which your website’s data changes.

  2. Automated Backups: Using automated backup software can help ensure that your backups are done consistently and on schedule, without the need for manual intervention.

  3. Incremental Backups (where appropriate): An incremental backup saves only the changes made since the last backup. This is more efficient and cost-effective than full backups and also helps to save on storage space.

  4. Offsite Backup: Storing backups offsite, such as in the cloud or on a remote server, is an effective way to protect your data in case of a disaster at your primary website location.

Our team can implement these strategies on your behalf to help protect your website from unexpected downtime.

WP Runner customer Knead Massage

I’ve been with WP Runner for the past couple of years and it is the best investment in terms of support for my business. I don’t have the time to learn WordPress, and with them I don’t need to. Whenever I need something changed or updated I just send off an email and it is done quickly and effectively. They do something in 10 minutes that would take me 5 times longer with more frustration and less results.
