I want to restore from HostGator's backups, but what if the backup file gets overwritten?

You probably realize that HostGator only keeps one backup of your account, and we replace that backup with a new backup once a week.

So, you are afraid when you request the backup file, it will be too late to get the old file. Never fear!

Simply contact us via phone or Live Chat. We will copy the backup file to a safe location where it will not be erased, at that time you can request a restore and specify to use the week-old backup we saved.
