A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on another hosting server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is quite useful, since you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. If your site is backed up, it can 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 computer is not very feasible, due to the fact that you would have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose data in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your web hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers generate backups once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a site which is being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Hosting
Because we recognize how critical your Internet site data is, we keep day-to-day backups of all your files and databases, so in the event that anything goes wrong, the website may be restored just the way it was. What is more, we create at least four individual backups every single day, so what will be restored shall be nearly identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You could see the backups right through the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and see on what day and at what hour they were set up. Then you may simply copy the content to the live site folder. Additionally, you may contact us and we shall restore the backup from the preferred date for you. We keep backups regardless of which hosting you've selected, so you will never need to concern yourself with losing any part of your web content.
