A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This option is rather efficient, since you cannot know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be small, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, as you would have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose info if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups once per week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a website which is being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Website Hosting
We recognize how important 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 website hosting account. We've gone past the vast majority of web hosting providers around, because we create full backups at least 4 times per day. Thus, if an issue occurs on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the website will look the way it did no more than a few hours earlier. The content could be restored by our tech support team or, if you want, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed within the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou can see the date and time they were created. You can just copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored site will be live immediately. However, if you are not sure how to proceed, you can make contact with our professionals and they will restore the content from the date you want inside of only an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages provide daily content backups as a standard. This function will permit you to work on your sites without having to worry if something can 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 an earlier one. Restoring the content is easy and normally takes just a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, because they'll be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your website hosting CP. Each backup folder contains the exact time and date it was generated in its name, so you can easily locate and copy the content that you need, even in case you do not have any previous experience with such matters.
