Saving and Loading Copies of a Website¶
While working on the content and design of a website, you can save several copies of each site to the server and restore sites from the saved copies (also referred to as snapshots). Saving site copies can be useful in the following cases:
- You want to prepare several versions of the same website, so that you can later load them for review, choose the best designed or the most appropriate version, and publish it to the Internet.
- You want to make significant changes or experiment on the site design or content, but be sure that you can safely undo the changes should anything go wrong.
Pictures from the Image Gallery modules are not saved in snapshots. Images are stored on your customer account.

In the list that opens, select a free saving slot, type a name for the backup copy, and click Save.
