A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on another web server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is quite effective, given that you can never know if a script update won't crash or if you will not eliminate something by mistake - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your website is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be very little, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your PC is not very feasible, due to the fact that you would need to do it at least once per day and you could still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting company, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers create backups just once every week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a website that's being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Web Hosting
Because we understand how crucial your Internet site information is, we keep daily backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything goes wrong, the website may be restored just the way it was. What's more, we generate no less than 4 different backups every single day, so what will be restored will be pretty much identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You may 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 can just copy the content to the live site folder. Alternatively, you can contact us and we'll restore the backup from the desired date for you. We keep backups irrespective of which shared web hosting you've chosen, so you will never need to worry about losing any part of your web content.
