How to back up your site using Uranium

Today I’ll explain a basic feature of Uranium Backup: FTP backup. Webmasters and site builders need to protect their work from unpleasent accidents. Hosting providers generally back up your site daily or weekly, but it’s important to have at least an updated copy in your PC to avoid unexpected problems.

Uranium let you back up your blog or website in a few clicks. Let’s see how you can get the job done!

First step is to create a new backup job. Click on the suggested link, then specify the name of the backup set (description is optional).

Then specify the backup folder, FTP domain (or the IP address) and access credentials. If you need strong security, I suggest you to enable FTPS or SFTP (not both at the same time), but note that transfer rate will decrease.
