Backup Service

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated servers have large storage capabilities. Users can configure local or FTP backups in DirectAdmin and WHM, or pay for remote backups to ensure their data is safe from hardware failure or malicious activity.

Woktron FTP Backup Storage is an optional service that that can be used to perform (daily) FTP backups of DirectAdmin or cPanel user accounts of your Virtual Private Server or Dedicated Server. Ofcourse, it can be used to backup any other data that you may have as well.

In addition to FTP and FTPS support there is support for webDAV, allowing desktop shares to be created and GIT (using the GITweb GUI) for version control.

It’s an affordable and complete backup solution that provides peace of mind.



How does it work?

The FTP backup storage server does not automatically copy your data, however you can automate the transfer via scripting, using standard DirectAdmin or C-Panel FTP backup functionality, or by using commands such as ncftpput. Data transfers can be made from your virtual private server or dedicated server or your home/office location.


Dedicated servers / VPS

We recommend using an FTP client such as NcFTP

Connect to the server:

In order to connect to your FTP backup service you will need to enter the following information:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Address - This is the address of the server. Use
  • Port - Use the default port 21
  • encryption - choose plain FTP or explicit FTP over TLS , also known as FTPs ( Preferred as this encrypts your data)

Some clients may ask for the host type (select "auto"), ASCII/Binary/Auto (select "auto), and the initial remote folder (you may leave this blank or change it to /domains/ to start off in the main web directory).
