Zone file backups


Microtech users can make backups of their zone files at any time via the dns zone editing page. Just expand the 'Previous Versions' section and click the Add backup add backup icon to create a new backup. Automatic backups of the entire zone are carried out every time you make changes to your zone file.

To view a zone file as it was when a backup was taken, expand the 'Previous versions (backups)' section, find the backup you wish to view and click the View previous version icon to view the backup. The historical copy will open in a new browser tab/window.

To restore a zone file to a previous version, click the Restore zone file icon. This will restore the zone as it was at the time the backup was taken. Backups are preserved for a certain period even after your zones are deleted, so accidental deletions and recoveries can be made using this feature.

Depending on your account, space for backups may be limited.
