A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on some other web server and can be restored if something happens. This option is rather efficient, given that you cannot know if a script update shall not crash or if you won't erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your Internet site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, depending upon the particular situation. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, since you'll have to do it at least once per day and you may still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies create backups once a week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that's being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our Linux semi-dedicated servers offer everyday content backups by default. This function will allow you to develop your sites without having to worry if something may go wrong, as our system generates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is easy and usually takes a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could just copy the backed-up files, as they will be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Every single backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you could instantly locate and copy the content you require, even in case you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
