Restoring Deleted/Overwritten Files for Linux Web Hosting Packages

For Linux Web Hosting packages

To minimize the risk of data loss, we automatically create a daily backup of your data for you. If you accidentally delete or overwrite files in your webspace, you can restore them in up to 6 days.

Please Note

Please check the available storage space of your webspace before starting. This is necessary since the recovered files occupy their own additional space while they are stored in a separate directory.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Log in to 1&1 IONOS.
  • Click on the Hosting tile and select the desired package if necessary.
  • In the top-right corner of the Webspace tile, click the Gear icon and select File Recovery.
  • You will see an overview of your available backups. Choose the desired restore point and click Select.
  • Select the desired file(s)/folder(s) and click Add. Once you are ready to continue, click Recover All.
  • You will see a prompt about the recovery process. Confirm with OK.
