A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and could be restored if something happens. This option is rather handy, given that you can never know if a script update will not crash or if you will not eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, depending on the particular case. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, as you'd have to do it at least once a day and you could still lose info in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups just once every week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that's being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
When you acquire any of the shared hosting
plans we provide, you could benefit from the backup function that comes with our plans by default and without extra cost. We will create a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of 4 times daily, so any time a problem appears on your site for some reason, we can quickly restore everything, and in the toughest 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 through a support ticket and we shall do what’s required on our end inside an hour, or you may directly copy the info from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, where you will find all of the backups that have been created listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You won't ever have to worry about your website content if you purchase a semi-dedicated server
from us, since our system creates regular backup copies of everything which you upload or create within the account. What is more, this happens not less than 4 times every day, so the worst that could happen shall be for your site to look the way it did some hours earlier. That's much better compared with what other providers can offer where you can practically lose days or even weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders inside the File Manager section of the website hosting Control Panel, so you could simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you shall be all set to go. You could also contact us via a support ticket and request a backup to be restored, although you could perform that yourself without any problem using the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia CP.
