First you need to login to the Control Panel by visiting http://maggie.hosts.net.nz/sql/ 

Log in with your username and password as contained in the account setup email.

Click on Tools on the left menu, then Backup Wizard (Web Hosting).

Select the database you want to backup from the dropdown menu and click the Backup button.

Depending on the size of the database, this process may take a few minutes.

Once completed, you will be provided with a link to download a backup of the database. The backup will be provided as a .bak file.
