    Hi guys I am hosted with a company which provides cPanel but has removed from cPanel the ability to do backup and restore, claiming that it uses so much cpu time that others on the server are affected. OK but for a long time I have backed up all my 65 webs sites with a utility (BackupSmart) which automates the backup of each site on a regular basis and gives me a local backup on my computer, so this is a problem for me. Turns out that the creation of backups still works but now I need to restore a hacked site for which I have a backup.

    I want to use the cPanel Restore plugin and wonder if the monthly fee for its use is for each website or if I can install it on all my sites at the inexpensive monthly fee.

    Any help is appreciated.

    cPanel doesn't have a restore plugin. You might do better to ask about it where you found it, or on a forum like webhostingtalk.
