A backup is a copy of a site that is kept on a different web server and could be restored if something goes wrong with the live website - an unsuccessful script update, an accidental deletion of some file or of your whole database, and so on. Restoring the site the way it was shall eradicate or reduce the damage the problem may have caused, that is by all means a much better option than having to reconstruct the whole Internet site from scratch. While you may download a copy of your content on your PC, keeping a backup is a function that nearly all website hosting providers incorporate as part of their plans. You'll have to take a look at how often they do that, though, because some companies create a backup just once every couple of days, which might be far from enough for a booking site or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated daily. It's adviseable to see how easily a backup may be restored, which could be critical if some issue appears on your website.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
When you obtain any of the shared hosting packages that we provide, you may benefit from the backup feature featured with our packages by default and without extra cost. We shall produce a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least 4 times per day, so each time a problem appears on your website for whatever reason, we can easily restore everything, and in the toughest scenario, your website shall be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are 2 ways for a backup to be restored - you may contact us through a support ticket and we shall do what’s necessary on our end inside an hour, or you could directly copy the information from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting CP, in which you will find all of the backups which have been created listed in chronological order.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers include everyday content backups as a standard. This option will permit you to improve your Internet sites without worrying if something could go wrong, because our system creates a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is easy and takes a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, since they will be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Each individual backup folder contains the exact time and date it was created in its name, so you could easily locate and copy the content which you need, even when you don't have any preceding experience with such matters.
