How to restore Snapshots of your Website

A web snapshot is a snapshot of the content of your web page on a specific day and time.

At SW Hosting you can restore snapshots of all your websites, through your SWPanel service management tool.

Important: Before initiating the indicated Snapshot recovery action, make sure that you really want to revert the state of the web with all your data from the time the snapshot was taken. You must keep in mind that this process is not reversible. The Web will remain the same as it was at the time the Snapshot was created. So ALL of your current data will be lost.

The steps to restore a snapshot are:

1. From the search box of your SWPanel, you will have to locate the service you want to restore a Snapshot.
