A backup of a website is a copy of its content, which is kept on another server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is rather efficient, since you cannot know if a script update won't crash or if you will not erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, depending upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, simply because you would have to do it at least once daily and you can still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies create backups only once per week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
We realize how important it is to have an up-to-date copy of your Internet site, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in every hosting account. We've gone beyond the majority of website hosting providers out there, because we create full backups a minimum of four times every day. Thus, in the event that a problem appears on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the site shall look the way it did only a couple of hours earlier. The content could be restored by our tech support team or, if you would like, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed within the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP whereyou could see the time and date they were generated. You can just copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored Internet site shall be live immediately. Otherwise, if you are not absolutely sure what to do, you can communicate with our professionals and they'll restore the content from the date you want inside just an hour.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated hosting plans provide daily content backups as a standard. This feature will enable you to develop your sites without worrying if something can go wrong, since our system generates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is super easy and will take a few minutes - you can use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup you want to be restored, or you can just copy the backed-up files, considering that they'll be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your hosting Control Panel. Every backup folder contains the exact time and date it was generated in its name, so you will be able to swiftly locate and copy the content you require, even in case you do not have any prior experience with such matters.
