A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on some other hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is quite efficient, considering that you can't know if a script update won't fail or if you will not erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, depending on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, because you would have to do it at least once each day and you could still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups just once each week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
We understand how vital it is to have an up-to-date copy of your website, so we keep a backup of all of the files and databases in every single shared web hosting account. We've gone further than the majority of hosting companies around, because we set up full backups no less than four times every day. This way, in case an issue occurs on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the site shall look the way it did only several hours earlier. The content could be restored by our technical support or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups will be listed within the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou could see the time and date they were created. You can just copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored site will be live immediately. Alternatively, if you're not absolutely sure what to do, you can contact our professionals and they shall restore the content from the date you want inside of only an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our Linux semi-dedicated servers provide regular content backups by default. This option will allow you to work on your sites without having to worry if something may go wrong, due to the fact that our system produces 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 very easy and normally takes a few minutes - you can use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, considering that they will be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your hosting Control Panel. Each individual backup folder contains the exact date and time it was made in its name, so you will be able to instantly locate and copy the content which you need, even if you do not have any preceding experience with this sort of matters.
