cPanel Google Drive – Send cPanel Backups to Google Drive
Since cPanel version 65.9999.70 you can now send any backups your cPanel Server takes to cPanel Google Drive.

Configure Your API Settings
1- Navigate to the Google API Manager website. 2- Click Library in the left navigation menu. 3- Under Google Apps APIs, click Drive API. 4- Click Create Project, and then click Create. A new menu will appear.
