Jetbackup is one of the leading backup software that allows several backups such as full cPanel backup, a partial backup, incremental backup, and many other cPanel backups such as Email, Files, DNS, SSL, Cronjobs, Database, and several other backups. Other than this, Jetbackup is the fastest and most effortless way to back up the contents and databases.

Before starting ahead, let’s take a brief look at some of the backups that JetBackup offers.

Full cPanel Backup

The full cPanel backup is used by both the users and the providers to secure their databases from any disaster on the remote server. With this backup, the user/provider creates a complete cPanel backup that includes contents, databases, emails, DNS, and all the other content present inside the cPanel.

Partial Backup

Partial backup is used to create a separate backup. For instance, if you’ve already created a full backup and now you want to create an additional backup of only MySQL Database, then you can use the partial backup option in JetBackup. Additionally, you can backup Emails, Databases, Contents, Etc partially using the partial backup option in Jetbackup.

Incremental Backup 

What is an Incremental backup? Well, the Incremental backup is quite a unique backup option to copy new files or only those files that have been changed since the last backup. For example, suppose you had already created a full backup of cPanels, and now you don’t want those files which you already downloaded before. In this case, you can use the incremental backup to copy those files that are new or changed since the last backup.

So, let’s now jump to the installation process.
