A time machine?

Yes, for your site.

Let’s say you accidentally break your website (whoopsies). Or maybe you get hacked, or attacked by a virus. If any one of these scenarios happen, you’ll wish you had a backup of your website to rely on. A copy of your site that allows you to go back in time and pretend this whole disaster never happened.

Insert CodeGuard. CodeGuard protects your website with daily, automatic backups you can access at any time. That way you can worry less about crashes and more about customers.

  • What’s the CodeGuard restore process like?

    For starters, you get to decide what kind of restoration you’d like to do for your site, whether it’s a single file, database, or the entirety of your website. Once the restoration is finished, a backup of the change is created, and you’ll get an email indicating that the process is complete. Learn more about how CodeGuard restores work
