A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and may be restored if something happens. This feature is rather practical, given that you cannot know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it shall be little, depending upon the specific case. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'll have to do it at least once a day and you can still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your website hosting company, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, because some companies generate backups only once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a site which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Cloud Hosting
All files and databases hosted inside a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform are copied regularly, so regardless what happens with your site, we shall have a copy of your content and we shall be able to restore it very fast. We've surpassed what other companies can offer in this regard, since our system creates a backup not less than four times per day. If you want any content to be restored, you can make contact with our tech support team via a trouble ticket and they shall do what is important within the hour, restoring the content from the time you want. Additionally, you can also check out the backups using your Hepsia Control Panel. They shall be listed in the File Manager section and sorted by date and time. Restoring a site is as basic as copying the files from the backup folder to the live domain folder, so even in case you have no practical experience, you will not have any problems.
