A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is very handy, because you can't know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it shall be minimal, depending on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, since you would have to do it at least once each day and you could still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting company, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups once every week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that's being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
We fully understand how essential it is to have an up-to-date copy of your Internet site, so we keep a backup of all of the files and databases in every hosting account. We have gone past the vast majority of hosting providers on the market, due to the fact that we set up full backups a minimum of 4 times every day. In this way, in the event that an issue appears on your Internet site and you want a backup to be restored, the Internet site will look the way it did no more than a couple of hours earlier. The content could be restored by our tech support or, if you want, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed within the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP whereyou'll be able to see the time and date they were created. You can simply copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored website will be live instantly. Additionally, if you're not absolutely sure how to proceed, you can communicate with our qualified professionals and they shall restore the content from the date you want inside only an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages provide daily content backups by default. This feature will permit you to develop your websites without having to worry if something could go wrong, because our system creates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is very simple and normally takes just a few minutes - you can use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup you want to be restored, or you may just copy the backed-up files, considering that they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your hosting CP. Each and every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was made in its name, so you will be able to swiftly locate and copy the content which you need, even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
