    In short, I'm currently only backing up to my default /backup directory, and I need to start thinking about contingency as one of my projects gets a bit more serious. Currently it's only my own and family/friend websites; it's not a web hosting business, I do not have any billing software and everything is done/managed by myself.

    I noticed a thread about the best backup solution however that focuses on a solution for clients that they can attain via billing software; for me, I'm not looking for a fully fledged backup solution; I am content with what cPanel offers, but I am just looking for somewhere to send the files outside of my server... could be as simple as an FTP storage solution.

    I would love to hear anyone's recommendations for a service that is affordable, easy to setup/doesn't require any installations on the server and is simply usable as an Additional Destination in cPanel's integrated backup solution.

    You may want to look into Amazon S3 as a remote storage solution:

    Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) - Cloud Storage

    It's natively supported as a backup destination in the Backup Configuration interface.

    Thank you.
