Hi Miguel, 

Confluence doesn't make it really easy to backup and restore a space within their Cloud environment. You can use these steps to export and import a space in Confluence Cloud: 

Export: Follow these steps HERE
Import: Follow these steps HERE

The big part is renaming the old space with the new space name in the xml file of the export file. 

Hopefully this gives you what you were looking for.
