A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other web server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is quite efficient, since you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be small, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, because you would need to do it at least once per day and you can still lose information if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies create backups only once per week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
We realize how important it is to have an up-to-date copy of your website, so we keep a backup of all of the files and databases in every hosting account. We have gone further than the vast majority of web hosting providers out there, because we generate full backups at least four times a day. That way, if a problem appears on your website and you want a backup to be restored, the site shall look the way it did no more than several hours earlier. The content can be restored by our tech support team or, if you prefer, you can do it yourself. The available backups will be listed inside the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel in whichyou can see the time and date they were generated. You can simply copy the content from there to your domain folder and the restored site shall be live instantly. Additionally, if you're not absolutely sure what to do, you can communicate with our technicians and they will restore the content from the date you want within only an hour.
