A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another server and may be restored if something happens. This function is quite practical, given that you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you won't delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your Internet site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be small, based on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once per day and you can still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies create backups only once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens 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 Website Hosting

If you order any of the cloud website hosting solutions which we offer, you could benefit from the backup feature featured with our solutions by default and without extra cost. We will create a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least four times each day, so each time an issue appears on your site for some reason, we'll quickly restore everything, and in the worst type of scenario, your site will be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are 2 ways for a backup to be restored - you may contact us using a support ticket and we will do what’s needed on our end within an hour, or you could directly copy the info from the backup to the live website folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting CP, where you will find all the backups that have been created listed in chronological order.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our Linux semi-dedicated servers offer everyday content backups by default. This function will enable you to develop your websites without worrying if something may go wrong, because our system creates a new backup every few hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is easy and usually takes a few minutes - you may use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup you want to be restored, or you may simply copy the backed-up files, since they will be available in read-only folders within 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 will be able to quickly locate and copy the content that you need, even in case you don't have any previous experience with such matters.
