A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other web server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is rather efficient, since you can never know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, dependant upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, as you would need to do it at least once a day and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers create backups once each week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that's being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Web Hosting
Because we know how vital your Internet site information is, we keep everyday backups of all your files and databases, so if anything fails, the site could be restored just the way it was. What is more, we generate a minimum of 4 independent backups each day, so what will be restored shall be pretty much identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You could browse 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 could simply copy the content to the live site folder. On the other hand, you may contact us and we shall restore the backup from the preferred date for you. We keep backups regardless of which cloud web hosting you've chosen, so you will never need to bother about losing any part of your web content.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated servers include regular content backups by default. This feature will permit you to work on your sites and never having to worry if something can go wrong, because our system produces a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is very simple and requires just a few minutes - you may use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you can simply copy the backed-up files, considering that they'll be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your web hosting Control Panel. Each individual backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you could swiftly locate and copy the content which you need, even in case you do not have any preceding experience with this sort of matters.
