A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and can be restored if something happens. This option is rather effective, given that you can't know if a script update won't crash or if you will not erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be small, based on the particular case. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you would have to do it at least once per day and you could still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, since some companies generate backups only once per week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that is being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for example.

Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy any of the cloud web hosting plans we provide, you may benefit from the backup function provided with our packages by default and at no extra cost. We will set up a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least four times per day, so when a problem shows up on your Internet site for some reason, we will quickly restore everything, and in the worst type of scenario, your Internet site will be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you can contact us using a support ticket and we'll do what’s needed on our end within the hour, or you could directly copy the content from the backup to the live site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, where you will find each of the backups which have been created listed in chronological order.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services include everyday content backups by default. This option will allow you to work on your websites and never having to worry if something may go wrong, since our system creates a new backup every few hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is super easy and normally takes a few minutes - you could use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, as they'll be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your website hosting Control Panel. Every single backup folder contains the exact date and time it was made in its name, so you could easily locate and copy the content you require, even when you do not have any prior experience with this kind of matters.
