A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is very useful, because you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be little, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once each day and you may still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups only once per week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that's being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
Because we acknowledge how important your website information is, we keep day-to-day backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything breaks down, the site may be restored just the way it was. What's more, we generate at least four individual backups every single day, so what will be restored will 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 created. Then you can simply copy the content to the live website folder. Alternatively, you can contact us and we'll restore the backup from the needed date for you. We keep backups irrespective of which shared web hosting you've selected, so you will never have to worry about losing any part of your web content.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't ever have to worry about your site content if you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, because our system creates regular backup copies of everything which you upload or set up inside the account. What's more, this happens at least four times each day, so the worst which could happen will be for your Internet site to look the way it did some hours earlier. That's much better compared to what other firms can offer where you can practically lose days or perhaps weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders within the File Manager section of the hosting Control Panel, so you can simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you'll be good to go. You could also contact us through a support ticket and request a backup to be restored, although you can perform that yourself with no problem using the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel.
