A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This option is very practical, given that you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, simply because you'll have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose data if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers generate backups only once every week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a site that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
We understand how essential it is to have an up-to-date copy of your website, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in every single shared hosting account. We have gone past the vast majority of hosting providers on the market, as we generate full backups at least four times per day. That way, in case an issue appears on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the site shall look the way it did just a couple of hours earlier. The content could be restored by our tech support or, if you'd like, you can do it yourself. The available backups will be listed in the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP whereyou'll be able to see the date and time they were created. You can simply copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored site shall be live immediately. Alternatively, if you are not absolutely sure what to do, you can communicate with our experts and they'll restore the content from the date you want inside just an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our system creates a full copy of the files and databases in each semi-dedicated server account created on our cutting-edge web hosting platform, so if you host your Internet sites with us, you won't ever need to deal with information loss, particularly having in mind that the backups are produced no less than four times every single day and are kept a minimum of one week. Restoring the content takes only a couple of minutes and may be done in two ways. The first is to open a support ticket with that request, revealing from which specific date you wish the data backup to be restored. The other way is to restore the content all by yourself, since the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the Control Panel and you can easily look through them freely to see what every folder features. All it takes to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You shall be able to see the timestamp for each backup in the account, so you can use the one you need.
