A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This feature is rather efficient, given that you cannot know if a script update will not go wrong or if you will not erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so forth. If your site is backed up, it can be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be little, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, since you'd have to do it at least once each day and you may still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers generate backups once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that's being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Website Hosting
Because we acknowledge how vital your website data is, we keep daily backups of all your files and databases, so in case anything goes wrong, the website can be restored just the way it was. Also, we create no less than four individual backups every day, so what will be restored shall be almost identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You can 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 performed. Then you could just copy the content to the live website folder. On the other hand, you could contact us and we'll restore the backup from the desired date for you. We keep backups regardless of which shared website hosting you have opted for, so you'll never need to worry about losing any part of your web content.
