A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and can be restored if something happens. This function is rather handy, because you can't know if a script update won't crash or if you will not eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, because you would have to do it at least once per day and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies generate backups only once per week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that's being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Web Hosting
We recognize how important it is to have an up-to-date copy of your site, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in every web hosting account. We've gone past the majority of website hosting companies around, because we generate full backups no less than 4 times a day. This way, if an issue appears on your Internet site and you want a backup to be restored, the site will look the way it did only several hours earlier. The content can be restored by our tech support team or, if you'd like, you can do it yourself. The available backups will be listed inside the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou can see the time and date they were generated. You can easily copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored Internet site will be live instantly. However, if you are not certain how to proceed, you can get in touch with our experts and they shall restore the content from the date you want inside no more than an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will never worry about your site content if you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, simply because our system generates regular backups of everything that you upload or set up in the account. What is more, this happens not less than 4 times every single day, so the worst that could happen will be for your website to look the way it did several hours earlier. This is significantly better compared to what other providers typically offer where you may practically lose days or weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders inside the File Manager section of the website hosting CP, so you can simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you shall be all set. You may also get in touch with us through a support ticket and request a backup to be restored, even though you could perform that yourself without any problem through the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel.
