You are responsible for backing up your data stored on DomainsFoundry servers.

We do create backups of our Web Hosting, Email Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Managed WordPress and Managed VPS, and it maybe possible to restore your website from these. However, this is not a procedure you should rely on to keep your content safe. Our backups are not a substitute to keeping your own regular backups.

We take daily backups of our Web Hosting and Email Hosting services. Including DNS, billing and core services such as Webmail.

  • Off server backups.
  • Backups monitored in realtime by our expert staff.

  • We backup Web Hosting and Email Hosting services.
  • Our own, customised backup software built for speed, performance and security.

Backup Technology

We have built our backup system to be fast, reliable and extremely secure. We store data off-server in DomainsFoundry Backup, our cloud backup service. All data moved between DomainsFoundry and DomainsFoundry Backup uses end-to-end SSL encryption meaning your data is secured at every stage.


If you wish, we can restore your cPanel account from our secure backups. Depending on your service, restoring your account may incur a small, one-off restore fee of £30 exc. Vat to cover the work involved in restoring your account.

It’s possible to restore your account for free by uploading your own backups using the restore tool in our control panel.

We do not backup or restore accounts that have been suspended or terminated. It’s therefore very important you ensure your site is kept online and you take your own regular backups.

Our free backup service is provided to you as a courtesy. Whilst we check our backups frequently, we do not make any guarantees that we can restore your data.

cPanel Backup Tool

You can make your own free backups of up to 4GB using the backup tool in the DomainsFoundry control panel.
