Usually, the backups on cPanel Shared and Reseller Hosting are performed by inslyHost and are basically stored in a recovery point. In order to restore the data (backup), it is essential to access the recovery point and download the backed up data in a form of an archive.
Here in this tutorial, we are going to see how to restore the backups directly to your cPanel account home directory, on the hosting server where your website is hosted.

Step 1: Log in to your cPanel account.
Step 2: Search for the Feature named “R1Soft Restore Backups” and click on it to access the R1Soft CDP log in page.
