A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and could be restored if something happens. This function is rather handy, since you can never know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be little, based on the specific case. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, since you'll have to do it at least once a day and you may still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers generate backups once each week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order any of the cloud web hosting
plans we offer, you can leverage the backup function that comes with our solutions by default and at no extra cost. We'll set up a copy of your files and databases not once, but no less than four times each day, so any time a problem shows up on your site for whatever reason, we can easily restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your website shall be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you may contact us through a support ticket and we'll do what’s needed on our end within the hour, or you can directly copy the information from the backup to the live website folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting CP, in which you shall find all the backups which have been created listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll never worry about your site content if you order a semi-dedicated server
from our company, because our system generates regular copies of everything you upload or create within the account. Moreover, this happens a minimum of four times every day, so the worst which could happen will be for your Internet site to look the way it did several hours earlier. This is far better compared to what other providers can offer where you can practically lose days or even weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders within the File Manager section of the website hosting CP, so you could simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you shall be all set to go. You can also communicate with us through a support ticket and ask for a backup to be restored, though you could perform that yourself with no problem through the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel.
