What is the difference between FTP Backup and Plesk backup?
An FTP Backup is a secondary server you can connect to to back up your server's contents.
Parallels Plesk Panel backup is a built-in utility that helps you back up your websites to a remote FTP server. You can use the Parallels Plesk Panel backup feature with our FTP backups. For more information, see:
- Adding FTP Backup Space to Your Server
- Using Parallels Plesk Panel to Automatically Back Up Your Domains
Without an FTP Backup server, Plesk stores the backups it creates on the local server.
The Plesk backup tools make it is easy to schedule regular backups and restore backups in case you have problems with your server.
