When you request cloud backup through HostGator, the HostGator technology automatically transfers information to CodeGuard that allows us to backup your files and your databases. This happens without you needing to do anything. That's right. No looking up credentials, passwords, and dealing with the hassle of whitelisting IPs or configuring SSH.
Just one click. And everything is configured magically. Everything.
And if you add databases in the future, HostGator will let us know - and we will start backing those up too. Magic!
