A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This function is rather efficient, since you can never know if a script update shall not fail or if you will not eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it shall be small, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once every day and you can still lose info if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies generate backups only once every week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a website that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
We understand how critical it is to have an up-to-date copy of your website, so we keep a backup of all of the files and databases in every shared hosting account. We have gone beyond the vast majority of hosting companies on the market, simply because we generate full backups at least 4 times a day. That way, if an issue appears on your website and you want a backup to be restored, the site will look the way it did just several hours earlier. The content could be restored by our tech support or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed within the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel in whichyou can see the time and date they were produced. You can just copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored site shall be live right away. However, if you are not certain what to do, you can contact our experts and they'll restore the content from the date you want inside only an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our Linux semi-dedicated services offer regular content backups by default. This feature will permit you to develop your sites without having to worry if something can go wrong, due to the fact that our system creates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is a breeze and usually takes just a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you may just copy the backed-up files, considering that they will be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your website hosting CP. Every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was generated in its name, so you could swiftly locate and copy the content which you need, even in case you don't have any preceding experience with this sort of matters.
