It remains your responsibility to make your own backups of your website's files reguarly.

Making regular backups of your website's files is very important, but easy to do simply by following the 5 steps below.

  1. Connect to your FTP account
  2. In the left hand file list, find a location where you will be storing your backups
  3. In the right hand file list, find the folders/files you wish to backup
  4. Drag and drop from the right hand file list to the left hand file list
  5. Disconnect from FTP.
It is recommened that you make a copy of your website's files at least once every week.

GetFreeHosting.co.uk takes no responsibility for the loss of your files should our servers experience some unexpected hardware failure. In case of emergency, we make regular monthly back-ups of all free hosting accounts hosted on our servers. 

Please note: In the unlikely event that our servers fail, we may need to re-instate your account with the most recent backup we made of your website. You may loose any changes you made to your website between the time our most recent backup was made and the time that our severs failed. It is important that you make your own website backups to prevent any unecessary loss of data.
