A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is very practical, because you can't know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be small, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting company, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups just once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that's being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Website Hosting
When you buy any of the shared website hosting packages that we offer, you could take advantage of the backup feature that comes with our solutions by default and at no extra cost. We will create a copy of your files and databases not once, but no less than four times daily, so every time a problem shows up on your Internet site for some reason, we'll quickly restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your website shall be restored the way it was only some hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you can contact us via a support ticket and we shall do what’s needed on our end inside an hour, or you could directly copy the content from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, in which you shall find all the backups that have been set up listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system creates a full backup of the files and databases in every single semi-dedicated server account created on our cutting-edge hosting platform, so if you host your websites with us, you'll never have to deal with information loss, particularly having in mind that the backups are produced at least 4 times every single day and are kept for a minimum of 7 days. Restoring the content requires just a couple of minutes and may be carried out in two ways. The first one is to open a support ticket with this request, specifying from which date you would like the backup to be restored. The second way is to restore the content all by yourself, due to the fact that the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the Control Panel and you may look through them freely to see what each individual folder features. All it requires to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You shall be able to see the timestamp for each backup inside the account, so you can choose the one you need.
