This guide will teach you how to clone a website in the Templ.io Control Panel.

How it works

In order to clone a website, you need to have the website you want to clone, and a new fresh website that we will import the clone to. 


We will create a complete backup of the website you want to clone, and then import that backup to the new website, thus making them identical.


After you have created the website that you want to clone, and a fresh website that you want to import the clone to, you should have at least two websites in your control panel:

How to clone a website - Step by step


Step 1:
Click on the website that you want to clone, in this case I will use "Website to be cloned" as an example. 


Step 2
:
Click Create Backup as shown on the image below.

Step 3:
Give your backup file a name, and make sure you select "Store on a remote server" and then click Continue.

Step 4:
Wait for the backup to finish, and then click Continue.

Step 5:
Go back to the Website list and select the website you want to import the clone to, i named mine "Import clone here" as an example.

Then click the "Restore backup" button as shown in the image below.

Step 6
Select which website you want to import the backup from. In my example, that is "Website to be cloned".

Then select "Choose from backups stored on a remote server"

Under "Choose backup file to restore", select the backup file that you created in Step 3 and then click Continue.

That's it! You now have to wait a few minutes for the restore to complete, once the backup restore is complete, then you will have two identical websites and the cloning process is complete.
