A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on another hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This option is very effective, because you can't know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't erase something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, dependant upon the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once a day and you can still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies generate backups only once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Website Hosting
Because we know how critical your site information is, we keep daily backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything breaks down, the Internet site can be restored just the way it was. Also, we generate at least four different backups every day, so what will be restored shall be nearly identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You can look at the backups right through the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and see on what day and at what hour they were made. Then you can just copy the content to the live site folder. As an alternative, you can contact us and we will restore the backup from the needed date for you. We keep backups regardless of which shared website hosting you have opted for, so you will never need to concern yourself with losing any part of your web content.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated services provide regular content backups by default. This feature will allow you to work on your websites without worrying if something could go wrong, due to the fact that our system creates a new backup every few hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is quite simple and requires only a few minutes - you can use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup which you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, considering that they will be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Each and every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was generated in its name, so you can instantly locate and copy the content you require, even if you do not have any prior experience with this sort of matters.
