As Ghost(Pro) is a managed service, you don’t need to worry about data backups—we've got you covered!

If you need to export your data for any reason, you can grab a quick export of your content, members, themes, and post analytics from Ghost admin — read more about generating exports of your data.

Outside of using the on-demand export options, developers can utilize the Admin API and Content API to write scripts and pull down data to be stored locally or on your own server.

Full site archives

You can also request a complete site archive, including images. Ghost(Pro) archives are not provided for service continuity and are not provided as backups. These archives are provided for the following purposes:

  • closing a site — if it's time to take the site down, but you'd like to retain the data, we will provide an archive
  • migrating a site — we can provide a complete archive to help you move your site away from Ghost(Pro)
  • creating a second Ghost instance for staging — when you're planning a big redesign of a site, it can be helpful to run a local Ghost site with some placeholder content

If you need an archive for these purposes please contact

Full site archives cannot be provided for Ghost(Pro) accounts that have already been cancelled.
