A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, that is kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is quite handy, because you cannot know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you will not erase something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once each 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 hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers create backups once per week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
Because we recognize how important your website data is, we keep day-to-day backups of all your files and databases, so if anything bad happens, the site may be restored just the way it was. Furthermore, we generate no less than four different backups on a daily basis, so what will be restored shall be almost identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You could browse the backups right through the File Manager section of your Hepsia Cp and see on what day and at what hour they were set up. Then you can just copy the content to the live site folder. As an alternative, you may contact us and we'll restore the backup from the preferred date for you. We keep backups regardless of which shared web hosting you have chosen, so you'll never need to concern yourself with losing any part of your web content.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated hosting plans include daily content backups by default. This function will enable you to develop your websites without having to worry if something can go wrong, since our system produces a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is easy and will take only a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup that you want to be restored, or you may simply 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 hosting Control Panel. Each backup folder contains the exact time and date it was made in its name, so you can swiftly locate and copy the content you need, even when you do not have any prior experience with such matters.
