A backup is a copy of a site that is kept on a separate hosting server and can be restored if a problem occurs with the live website - a defeated script update, an accidental deletion of a file or of the whole database, and so forth. Restoring the site the way it was will take away or lessen the damage the issue may have caused, that's by all means an obviously better alternative than having to reconstruct the entire site from scratch. Although you can download a copy of your content on your personal computer, keeping a backup is a functionality that most web hosting companies include as part of their packages. It is important to check how often they do that, though, because some companies create a backup just once every couple of days, that could be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal in which the information is updated every day. It's also advisable to see how fast and easy a backup could be restored, which could be critical if some problem appears on your website.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will never worry about your site content if you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, because our system creates regular copies of everything which you upload or create in the account. Furthermore, this happens at least four times every day, so the worst which can happen will be for your site to look the way it did a few hours earlier. This is much better in comparison with what other companies can offer where you may practically lose days or even weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders inside the File Manager section of the website hosting CP, so you can simply copy the content to the actual domain folder and you'll be ready. You may also get in touch with us through a support ticket and ask for a backup to be restored, though you could perform that yourself without any problem through the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia CP.
