Automated Remote Backup Service

InMotion Hosting Shared and Reseller hosting plans feature an Automated Remote Backup Service. When enabled, two (2) instances of your Home Directory and MySQL/pgSQL databases are stored remotely. You can manage and restore the backups using the Backup Manager interface in cPanel.

InMotion Hosting's Backup Manager

InMotion makes backups and restorations simple to manage! Our exclusive Backup Manager plugin for cPanel enhances this service and provides the ability to:

  • Generate and restore full, partial, or individual file backups - no more need to contact support!

  • Queue multiple restoration requests and view their progress live.

  • Set custom retention and backup generation schedules - meaning no more 24-36 hour time-frame restrictions!

  • Be alerted if your account(s) are nearing or over their backup quota via AMP and email notifications.

  • Purchase additional backup space directly from AMP Marketplace.

  • Manage backups using cPanel and/or the Command Line Interface (CLI).
