A backup is a copy of an Internet site that is kept on a separate server and can be restored if something goes wrong with the live website - an unsuccessful script update, an accidental deletion of a file or of the entire database, and so forth. Restoring the website the way it was will remove or minimize the damage the problem may have caused, that is by all means a much better alternative than having to reconstruct the whole site from scratch. Even though you can download a copy of your content on your laptop, keeping a backup is a feature that the majority of website hosting companies include as part of their packages. You have to check how frequently they do that, though, because some service providers generate a backup once every week, which can be far from enough for a booking site or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated daily. It's also advisable to see how quick and simple a backup can be restored, which could be vital if some problem appears on your site.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
When you order any of the cloud hosting packages which we provide, you'll be able to leverage the backup feature featured with our plans by default and without extra cost. We shall produce a copy of your files and databases not once, but no less than 4 times daily, so each time a problem shows up on your site for some reason, we can easily restore everything, and in the worst case scenario, your website will be restored the way it was only some hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you could 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 info from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, in which you will find all the backups which have been created listed in chronological order.
