A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is quite efficient, because you can never know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your Internet site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, dependant upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, as you would have to do it at least once a day and you may still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers create backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
When you acquire any of the shared hosting solutions which we provide, you'll be able to leverage the backup feature featured with our solutions by default and at no extra cost. We will create a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of four times per day, so whenever an issue shows up on your site for whatever reason, we can speedily restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your Internet site will be restored the way it was just a few hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you could contact us with a support ticket and we will do what’s necessary on our end within the hour, or you could directly copy the information from the backup to the live website folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting CP, where you will find all of the backups that have been produced listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans offer regular content backups as a standard. This feature will permit you to develop your sites without worrying if something could go wrong, simply because our system creates a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is super easy and normally takes only a few minutes - you can either use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, since they will be available in read-only folders within the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Every single backup folder contains the exact time and date it was produced in its name, so you can swiftly locate and copy the content you need, even if you don't have any prior experience with such matters.
