A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that's kept on another web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather efficient, considering that you can never know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your website is backed up, it can 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 minimal, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, because you would have to do it at least once each day and you can still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers generate backups just once per week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Website Hosting
Because we recognize how important your website information is, we keep daily backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything bad happens, the Internet site may be restored just the way it was. What's more, we create a minimum of four individual backups every day, so what will be restored shall be pretty much 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 Control Panel and see on what day and at what hour they were made. Then you can simply copy the content to the live website folder. As an alternative, you can contact us and we will restore the backup from the desired date for you. We keep backups regardless of which website hosting you have opted for, so you will never need to concern yourself with losing any part of your web content.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system generates a full copy of the files and databases in each semi-dedicated server account created on our cutting-edge hosting platform, so in case you host your sites with us, you won't ever have to cope with info loss, especially having in mind that the backups are generated no less than 4 times each day and are kept for about 7 days. Restoring the content requires only a couple of minutes and could be carried out in 2 ways. The first one is to open a support ticket with that request, suggesting from which specific date you desire the backup to be restored. The other way is to restore the content by yourself, because the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the CP and you will be able to take a look at them freely to see what each folder contains. All it requires to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You'll be able to see the timestamp for every single backup in the account, so you can pick the one you need.
