Restore deleted WordPress site

By Feature Updates, Frontpage

If you should accidentally delete your site, fear not, there is now a way to restore it!

After a site has been deleted from the server we will keep the backups for an additional week. During this grace period you can at any time restore the site to a server of your choosing.

How to restore a site

Here we have a listing of your sites on all of your server. In this example there is only one site.

Lets delete the site to test the new un-delete feature

Before the site gets deleted we take a final backup of it in case you want to restore it during the grace period. The site in the listing will move from the Active tab to the Trashed tab.
