What is CodeGuard Protocol?
CodeGuard is a service that provides an automatic website/database backup solution. It monitors your website/database regularly. If any changes are detected, it will notify you about the changes and backup your website/database. It also allows you to restore your website/database to a previous version.

Most 8-bit devices have Code Protect. CodeGuard is similar in that it offers code protection but it’s more sophisticated in that it lets users control permissions of one portion of code on another. Generally speaking, CodeGuard offers lowest security General Segment, a Secure Segment, and a Boot Segment. Say you had a bootloader in the boot segment, and you didn’t want code from the general segment to be able to corrupt the bootloader. This might be an example where you can use Code Guard.
How CodeGuard Protocol works?
CodeGuard provides an API for business partners and applications to interact with CodeGuard users and backups. The API uses REST conventions and returns all data in JSON format. Requests may be made using the HTTPS protocol and must be authenticated using a Partner API key or an individual users credentials. An individual or organization with a registered CodeGuard Partner API key or partners may build applications, plugins or extensions which can create CodeGuard users. However, once the user has been created, the partner cannot perform any actions on their behalf but may be able to delete the account.
After you add a website, any new files or directories that you add to your site will automatically backup. CodeGuard will only exclude files and directories that you don’t select when adding your website. If you need to change how your website is backed up, you need to delete and re-add your website. However, this should be handled with care as you will lose your backups. This option is only recommended if you have just added your website. CodeGuard only supports backing up of MySQL databases.
