    A complete cPanel backup creates a copy of all of your emails, databases files etc. Once initialized, you must allow the backup to complete its backup process. It can send you an email at the specified adderess(eg-https://waxspace.com) once backup is ready to be downloaded.

    The server can send you an email to an address specified once the backup is ready to download. The steps for generating, downloading and restoring a full backup are explained in detail below.
