A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This option is very efficient, because you can never know if a script update will not crash or if you won't eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. When your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, simply because you'll have to do it at least once a day and you could still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies create backups only once each week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
Because we recognize how vital your website data is, we keep day-to-day backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything fails, the site could be restored just the way it was. In addition, we generate at least 4 different backups every single day, so what will be restored shall be almost identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You can browse the backups right through the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and see on what day and at what hour they were made. Then you could just copy the content to the live site folder. Alternatively, you could contact us and we will restore the backup from the preferred date for you. We keep backups regardless of which hosting you've selected, so you will never need to worry about losing any part of your web content.
