A backup is a copy of an Internet site that is kept on an independent server and could be restored if something goes wrong with the live site - a defeated script update, an accidental deletion of a file or of the entire database, etcetera. Restoring the site the way it was shall remove or minimize the damage the problem may have caused, which is by all means a much better alternative than having to reconstruct your whole site from scratch. Although you could download a copy of your content on your laptop or computer, keeping a backup is a function that nearly all web hosting companies include as part of their plans. You'll have to take a look at how frequently they do that, though, because some companies generate a backup just once every week, which may be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal where the info is updated every single day. It's adviseable to see how easily a backup may be restored, which can be essential if some issue appears on your site.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
If you buy any of the cloud hosting packages we offer, you'll be able to take advantage of the backup function featured with our plans by default and at no extra cost. We will set up a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least 4 times each day, so each time an issue appears on your site for whatever reason, we can easily restore everything, and in the worst scenario, your site will be restored the way it was just a few hours ago. There are 2 ways for a backup to be restored - you can contact us with a support ticket and we shall do what’s necessary on our end within an hour, or you could directly copy the information from the backup to the live website folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, 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 of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offer daily content backups by default. This option will enable you to work on your Internet sites without worrying if something can go wrong, as our system creates 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 easy and takes only a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup that you want to be restored, or you may simply copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they shall be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your hosting Control Panel. Each backup folder contains the exact time and date it was created in its name, so you can easily locate and copy the content which you need, even in case you do not have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
