How To: Back up and download all data in your Davidson Domains account

Making periodic backups of your site is a recommended security measure, and may be required if you want to move your hosting to a third party service when leaving the College.

  1. Log in to
  2. Hover your cursor over "Manage Your Account" from the top menu in the black navigation bar and click "Migration Information".
  3. Under Backups, click "Add Backup" to make a full backup of your cPanel environment. This means everything -- domains, subdomains, applications, databases, email, etc. -- you are using in the dashboard for Davidson Domains.
  4. You'll be notified that the backup is in progress.
  5. Download that backup file (link will be below that button when completed). If you are leaving the College and changing to third-party hosting, you can take this to any other hosting service that supports cPanel.
