Firstly, we wish to give an almighty thanks to everyone who has checked us out over the last year.  Another thanks goes out to those who have messaged us any questions or enquires on our support channel. We've enjoyed responding to every single one of you who have reached out to us. If you're reading this as a new user, head over to our signup page and introduce yourself for a free trial.

I'm here to tell you that we've built a core new feature into Bitlaunch which has been requested from many over the last few months. Backups!

Backups are here, so how do I use them?

Backups allows you to have weekly/daily backups (depending on your server host) for your servers. You can restore a backup to a server at any time.

Note: Backups are tied to servers and are removed when the server is removed.

A new icon on your control panel will let you know if a server has backups currently enabled at a quick glance:

Servers with backups enabled will have the cloud icon highlighted

Once backups are enabled, they will appear in a list in the backup overview screen.

Backups have a date of creation, as well as a size 

Clicking the green restore button will begin the process of reverting your server back to the date specified in the backup. Backups usually take a few minutes to restore.

We hope you enjoy this new feature. As usual, if you have any questions please reach out to us on support or our twitter.

Thanks,
Staro from Bitlaunch
