A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This function is very practical, considering that you can never know if a script update won't fail or if you will not eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it will be very little, dependant upon the particular case. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'd have to do it at least once every day and you may still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, since 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 constantly, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
When you order any of the shared hosting plans which we offer, you'll be able to take advantage of the backup feature provided with our packages by default and at no extra cost. We shall set up a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of four times a day, so each time an issue appears on your website for whatever reason, we will speedily restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your Internet site will be restored the way it was only some hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you can contact us with a support ticket and we shall do what’s needed on our end inside the hour, or you can directly copy the information from the backup to the live website folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting CP, in which you shall find each of the backups that have been produced listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated packages include everyday content backups as a standard. This option will permit you to develop your websites without worrying if something may go wrong, because our system generates 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 very simple and normally takes only a few minutes - you may use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could just copy the backed-up files, since they'll be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your website hosting CP. Each backup folder contains the exact date and time it was created in its name, so you can easily locate and copy the content you need, even if you don't have any previous experience with this sort of matters.
