A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is quite useful, given that you can never know if a script update shall not fail or if you will not delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it'll be very little, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your laptop or computer is not very feasible, due to the fact that you'd have to do it at least once every day and you may still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers create backups only once every week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
When you obtain any of the cloud hosting packages that we provide, you could take advantage of the backup feature that comes with our packages by default and without extra cost. We shall produce a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of four times each day, so each time an issue shows up on your site for whatever reason, we can quickly restore everything, and in the worst type of scenario, your Internet site will be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you may contact us via a support ticket and we'll do what’s needed on our end inside an hour, or you may directly copy the info from the backup to the live site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia hosting CP, in which you shall find all the backups which have been produced listed in chronological order.
