A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This option is rather practical, because you cannot know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you will not eliminate something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your Internet site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, depending upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once a day and you can still lose information 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 providers create backups just once a week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
Because we recognize how vital your Internet site data is, we keep everyday backups of all your files and databases, so if anything goes wrong, the Internet site may be restored just the way it was. Furthermore, we create a minimum of four different backups each day, so what will be restored will be nearly 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 set up. Then you may just copy the content to the live site folder. On the other hand, you can contact us and we shall restore the backup from the needed date for you. We keep backups no matter which shared web hosting you have opted for, so you will never have to bother about losing any part of your web content.
