A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different server and can be restored if something happens. This option is quite effective, since you can never know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer isn't very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once per day and you could still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your website hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups once per week, that will do no good if a problem occurs 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 Cloud Hosting
We know how critical it is to have an up-to-date copy of your website, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in every cloud hosting account. We've gone further than the vast majority of web hosting providers on the market, due to the fact that we generate full backups at least four times a day. This way, if an issue occurs on your site and you want a backup to be restored, the site shall look the way it did just a few hours earlier. The content can be restored by our technical support or, if you want, you can do it yourself. The available backups shall be listed inside the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou can see the date and time they were produced. You can just copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored website will be live straightaway. However, if you are not certain what to do, you can contact our experts and they shall restore the content from the date you want within no more than an hour.
