That would be possible only if you have root WHM access. If you're a reseller, you probably won't have root access.

An automated backup feature for individual cPanel accounts, if not the entire reseller account including all resold accounts as that would be quite a cumbersome backup indeed, would really be a handy feature. cPanel should consider adding it in future versions.

Both cPanel and WHM have automated ftp (and similar protocols). It's just as easy as, first, having an external ftp account capable of holding your data, then, just setting up and scheduling.

It can be done many ways from php scripts, to big companys, to cPanel, an extra HDD, ftp backup, and more.

Most big companies however use either an off-site backup provider due to if there was outages or corruption problem or a backup somewhere in-house. However the bigger hosters usually have a combo of both of these.

Yep the siteautobackup is a nice little site operated by HostGator. For their free one, it costs $25 to restore a site and they only permit weekly backups.

The Base 1GB for $2/month is a fair price and $1 per 1GB additional space needed. The 5GB runs on the same deal for $5/month and $1 for each gig.

Nice to have an extra backup system hanging around - still, I recommend making internal backups too.

The cPanel Backup feature where you get to create Full cpanel backups is quite a handy utility as it allows you create a backup of your entire account including email, forwarders, DBs, files, etc which you can always use to move your site to another server. Apart from that and as mentioned above, most hosts do maintain regular backups on their servers, however, it's best to not rely on your host's backups alone as you could run into problems where a backup you need doesn't exist. It would be a good idea to backup your site regularly, say once every week at the very least.

As someone said before WHM Panel can make automatic remote backup and upload it to your preffered location which i tested for months and which is very effective and helpful.

rsync is an option too

Personally, if I was on a budget, I'd create a cronjob to dump the database to a file, then rsync that file to a remote location. MOST TIMES the file structure on the site wouldnt' be changing, it's just the database which is the important part.
This is most desirable. Rather than "hoping" the host you use to resell from will actually back up your sites as they say they will.

I agree, I think you should backup and keep local if at all possible at least twice a week or month.

I have a php script that works with crons that will back up your accounts for you. You set it to where want the backup , either on your local or ftp to another server. If you are interest send me a PM and I will give you a copy of the script script.

cPanel's backup tool actually works not bad in most cases

Is there a way to automate daily backups for a reseller account? I've looked around and a lot of hosting companies list this as a benefit of their hosting. I'm just wondering how this is accomplished, through software i.e. Cpanel/WHM or is this done by the server manager the top level company running the server.

Thanks

Mark
Some hosting companies use R1Soft to perform such backups. The benefit behind this, is that users can restore their backed up files from their own cPanel without the need to contact the host for assistance.

For example WHM has got such a automated backups option or rsync has got similar feature. Buying external module for that purpose is not best idea if Your income is not very high. Many tools will do quite well for much less price.
