Why are backups important?
Data backups are crucial for protection against events such as system crashes, malware or virus attacks, power failures, natural disasters, and more. A regular backup (preferably daily or weekly) can save your data from loss should any problems occur.
Why use JetBackup?
JetBackup is a leading backup solution that allows you to easily perform a range of backup-and-restore operations right from your cPanel interface. Including full account backups, specific directories or files, emails, cronjobs, FTP accounts, databases, database users and SSL certificates. This flexibility allows you to completely customize your backup jobs to suit your needs. For example, you could run an hourly database backup alongside a daily full account backup.
What’s new with JetBackup 5?
Let’s take a look at the brand new changes introduced with the JetBackup 5 update…
Expanded control panel support
Support has been expanded for many of the industry-leading control panels, currently: cPanel, DirectAdmin & Standalone Linux. Native support for Plesk is coming later in 2022. A developer API is also available to integrate JetBackup into any control panel.
Incremental backup engine
All destinations have incremental support by default. Incremental backups will copy only files that have changed or have been created since the last full backup. Making the backup process much faster!
Backup & restore multiple accounts simultaneously
You may now simultaneously backup & restore up to 10 accounts. JetBackup is now configured to run as a service to trigger tasks instantly and significantly increase backup and restore speed.
Advanced restore options
Several new options have been introduced to improve the restoration process. You can now specify which part of an account you’d like to restore (such as databases, email, specific files, etc); set a priority order for accounts that should be restored first; and merge email restorations with live data so you don't lose any new emails.
Develop & integrate plugins
If you have a Cloud or Dedicated Server service, you’re now able to install addon plugins, or even develop and install your own plugins. You can link to your own repository to update your plugins.
You can view a more detailed comparison between the latest versions on the JetBackup website.
Regular data backups are absolutely necessary to protect your data. If you have a Web Hosting, Managed WordPress or Reseller Hosting service, you can take advantage of all that JetBackup 5 has to offer today! If you are using other services, you can contact our support team for additional information.
