A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another server and could be restored if something happens. This function is very efficient, since you cannot know if a script update won't fail or if you will not eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your Internet site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, simply because you would have to do it at least once a day and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups once each week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a site that's being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
All files and databases hosted within a hosting account on our cloud platform are backed up regularly, so no matter what happens with your Internet site, we shall have a copy of your content and we'll be able to restore it very fast. We've surpassed what other companies typically offer in this regard, since our system produces a backup no less than 4 times a day. If you would like any content to be restored, you can contact our tech support team via a trouble ticket and they'll do what is needed inside the hour, restoring the content from the time you want. Additionally, you can also check out the backups via your Hepsia CP. They will be listed within the File Manager section and sorted by time and date. Restoring an Internet site is as simple as duplicating the files from the backup folder to the live domain folder, so even in case you have virtually no experience, you won't have any problems.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated plans offer daily content backups as a standard. This feature will allow you to develop your sites and never having to worry if something can go wrong, due to the fact that our system generates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is quite simple and will take a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you could just copy the backed-up files, considering that they will be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Each and every backup folder contains the exact time and date it was generated in its name, so you can easily locate and copy the content which you need, even when you do not have any previous experience with this sort of matters.
