A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is quite practical, given that you can't know if a script update shall not go wrong or if you won't erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be very little, based on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once every day and you could still lose info if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll have to rely on your hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups only once per week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with an Internet site that is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
As part of our semi-dedicated server packages, we generate everyday backups of all of the sites and databases created on our advanced hosting platform. What is more, this happens a minimum of four times daily, so you can forget about the old and often useless backups that the majority of hosting companies offer. You will be able to browse the backup folders within the File Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated accounts. It shall take only a few mouse clicks to copy the backed-up content to the domain folder in which you want it and the saved version of your Internet site shall be live promptly. Needless to say, if you aren't sure what to do, you may always open a trouble ticket and ask for a backup from a specific date and time to be restored by our support professionals. Through our services, you'll never need to worry about losing precious information, no matter what.
