A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and could be restored if something happens. This function is very practical, considering that you cannot know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be minimal, depending upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, due to the fact that you would have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose data if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, as some companies create backups just once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Website Hosting
We realize how vital it is to have an up-to-date copy of your site, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in each and every shared website hosting account. We've gone beyond the vast majority of web hosting providers on the market, due to the fact that we create full backups at least four times every day. This way, in the event that an issue occurs on your Internet site and you want a backup to be restored, the website shall look the way it did only a couple of hours earlier. The content could be restored by our technical support or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed in the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP whereyou could see the time and date they were created. You can easily copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored website shall be live immediately. However, if you are not absolutely sure what to do, you can contact our experts and they will restore the content from the date you want within only an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include regular content backups by default. This option will permit you to work on your Internet sites and never having to worry if something may go wrong, due to the fact that our system generates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is quite simple and usually takes just a few minutes - you could use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup you want to be restored, or you may just copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they shall be available in read-only folders within the File Manager section of your website hosting Control Panel. Each and every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was created in its name, so you could quickly locate and copy the content which you need, even when you do not have any prior experience with this type of matters.
