A backup is a copy of a site that's kept on another hosting server and could be restored if something wrong happens with the live site - an unsuccessful script update, an accidental deletion of a file or of your entire database, etcetera. Restoring the website the way it was shall take away or minimize the damage the issue may have caused, that is by all means a certainly better option than having to rebuild your whole Internet site from scratch. Though you could download a copy of your content on your laptop, keeping a backup is a function that the majority of web hosting companies include as part of their packages. You'll have to take a look at how often they do that, though, because some providers generate a backup just once every few days, that could be far from enough for a booking website or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated every day. It's adviseable to see how fast and easy a backup can be restored, which could be vital if some issue appears on your site.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
When you acquire any of the shared web hosting packages that we offer, you can leverage the backup function featured with our packages by default and at no extra cost. We shall set up a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least four times a day, so any time a problem appears on your site for whatever reason, we can speedily restore everything, and in the worst case scenario, your website shall be restored the way it was only some hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you may contact us using a support ticket and we shall do what’s needed on our end inside the hour, or you may directly copy the information from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, in which you will find all the backups which have been set up listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans provide daily content backups as a standard. This option will allow you to improve your websites without worrying if something may go wrong, due to the fact that 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 easy and will take a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup which you want to be restored, or you can just copy the backed-up files, as they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your hosting CP. Each and every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you will be able to quickly locate and copy the content which you need, even if you do not have any preceding experience with this kind of matters.
