If you run a site, having a backup is something rather important, especially if you have important data or you have invested money and time in creating the Internet site. There are different scenarios why you may need a backup - if you update a script and something goes wrong, if you eliminate a file or a whole folder accidentally, etc. Having regular backups will help you avoid any loss of information or at least minimize the damage, which is still better than losing the entire site. You may download a copy of your content on your desktop or notebook occasionally, but since you can't do that after every change, you'll have to rely on the backups which your host company generates. As that is something quite vital, you need to make certain that they keep up-to-date backups, given that a backup performed once every one or two weeks may not do any good when you run a website such as an online store or a holiday accommodation booking portal.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system creates a full copy of the files and databases in every semi-dedicated server account set up on our cutting-edge web hosting platform, so in case you host your sites with us, you'll never need to worry about information loss, especially having in mind that the backups are generated not less than 4 times every day and are kept a minimum of seven days. Restoring the content requires no more than a few minutes and could be carried out in 2 ways. The first one is to open a support ticket with this request, specifying from which particular date you want the backup to be restored. The other way is to restore the content by yourself, because the backups are available within the File Manager section of the CP and you will be able to take a look at them freely to see what each individual folder features. All it takes to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You will be able to see the timestamp for every single backup within the account, so you can select the one you need.
