A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different hosting server and could be restored if something happens. This option is quite effective, considering that you can't know if a script update will not go wrong or if you won't erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be minimal, depending on the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, as you'd have to do it at least once per day and you may still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups only once per week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that is being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
When you acquire any of the cloud hosting packages that we provide, you could leverage the backup feature that comes with our solutions by default and at no extra cost. We shall produce a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of four times per day, so when a problem appears on your site for some reason, we will quickly 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 can contact us with a support ticket and we will do what’s needed on our end inside an hour, or you may directly copy the information from the backup to the live site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting CP, in which you shall find each of the backups that have been created listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers offer regular content backups by default. This option will enable you to develop your Internet sites without having to worry if something can go wrong, as our system creates 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 very simple and usually takes 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 just copy the backed-up files, as they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your website hosting Control Panel. Each backup folder contains the exact time and date it was produced in its name, so you could easily locate and copy the content you require, even in case you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
