We use browser cookies for a number of reasons, such as keeping the YourSites website reliable and secure, personalising content, and to analyse how our site is used.

Here you can download a copy of YourSites if you have a valid subscription.

We always recommend that you make sure your client sites are backed up before relying on YourSites - just as you should when applying upgrades using Joomla directly on your client sites.  Yoursites provides an interface to Akeeba Backup on your client sites so you can initiate the creation of these backups from your YourSites server.
