Website backup and recovery

This article is about the original Webnode editor. If your site was created in the new editor, you can go to the new article How to Create a Backup of Your Website.

This feature allows you to backup the content of your website. You will love this feature, especially if you accidentally delete a page or some important content from your site because you will be able to recover it easily. The size of backup is added to your used storage space.

You can backup your data to your storage space and recover it any time you want, or you can download the offline version to your computer. The backup contains all the content of the website, while the offline version is created from the published version of the website.
