A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This option is very practical, given that you can never know if a script update won't crash or if you won't delete something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be small, based on the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, because you'll have to do it at least once each day and you can still lose data if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers generate backups only once a week, that will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that's being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
We recognize how essential it is to have an up-to-date copy of your site, so we keep a backup of all the files and databases in every single hosting account. We have gone past the vast majority of hosting providers around, as we create full backups at least 4 times every day. This way, if a problem occurs on your Internet site and you want a backup to be restored, the website will look the way it did only a couple of hours earlier. The content can be restored by our tech support or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups will be listed in the File Manager section of your Hepsia CP in whichyou could see the time and date they were created. You can easily copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored website shall be live right away. Additionally, if you're not certain what to do, you can communicate with our technicians and they will restore the content from the date you want inside no more than an hour.
