A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather practical, given that you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you will not erase something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. When your website is backed up, it can be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be very little, dependant upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once every day and you may still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some companies create backups only once a week, which will do no good if something goes wrong with a site that's being used and updated all the time, like an online store, for instance.

All files and databases hosted inside a shared hosting account on our cloud platform are backed up regularly, so regardless what happens with your website, we'll have a duplicate of your content and we will be able to restore it very fast. We've surpassed what other companies may offer in this regard, simply because our system creates a backup not less than four times per day. If you'd like any content to be restored, you ought to contact our technical support via a trouble ticket and they'll do what is vital inside the hour, restoring the content from the time period you want. However, you can also look at the backups through your Hepsia Control Panel. They will be listed inside the File Manager section and sorted by time and date. Restoring a site is as basic as duplicating the files from the backup folder to the live domain folder, so even if you have no practical experience, you won't have any problems.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include daily content backups by default. This feature will permit you to improve your websites without having to worry if something can go wrong, due to the fact that our system generates a new backup every few hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is very simple and will take a few minutes - you could use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, as they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting Control Panel. Each individual backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you can instantly locate and copy the content you require, even if you do not have any prior experience with this sort of matters.
