A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that's kept on another web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is rather practical, since you can never know if a script update will not go wrong or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be minimal, depending on the particular case. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, because you'll have to do it at least once every day and you can still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers generate backups once per week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
We know how critical 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 single cloud hosting account. We have gone further than the majority of web hosting providers around, because we generate full backups at least 4 times per day. This way, in case an issue appears on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the website will look the way it did only a couple of hours earlier. The content can be restored by our tech support or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed in the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou can see the time and date they were produced. You can simply copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored website shall be live instantly. Alternatively, if you are not certain what to do, you can contact our qualified professionals and they'll restore the content from the date you want inside of no more than an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You won't ever have to worry about your website content if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, since our system generates regular backups of everything you upload or create inside the account. Furthermore, this happens no less than 4 times each day, so the worst which could happen will be for your site to look the way it did several hours earlier. That's much better in comparison with what other firms typically offer where you may practically lose days or even weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders inside the File Manager section of the web hosting Control Panel, so you could simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you'll be all set. You could also communicate with us through a support ticket and request a backup to be restored, even though you can do that yourself without any problem through the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel.
