A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, that's kept on another server and could be restored if something happens. This option is quite practical, because you can't know if a script update won't crash or if you will not eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be small, dependant upon the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, since you'd have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers generate backups just once each week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with an Internet site that is being used and updated at all times, such as an online store, for instance.

Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting

If you acquire any of the shared hosting plans which we provide, you may take full advantage of the backup feature provided with our plans by default and at no extra cost. We will produce a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least four times a day, so when a problem shows up on your website for whatever reason, we can easily restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your website will be restored the way it was just one or two hours ago. There are 2 ways for a backup to be restored - you could contact us with a support ticket and we will do what’s needed on our end within an hour, or you could directly copy the information from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting CP, where you shall find all of the backups that have been created listed in chronological order.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting offer daily content backups as a standard. This option will allow you to improve your websites and never having to worry if something could go wrong, since our system creates a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is very easy and usually takes a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup which you want to be restored, or you could just copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting Control Panel. Each individual backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you can quickly locate and copy the content you need, even when you do not have any prior experience with this kind of matters.
