A backup is a copy of a website that's kept on another server and can be restored if something wrong happens with the live website - an unsuccessful script update, an unintended deletion of some file or of the entire database, and so forth. Restoring the website the way it was will eliminate or decrease the damage the problem may have caused, that's by all means a certainly better option than having to reconstruct the entire site from scratch. While you may download a copy of your content on your laptop, keeping a backup is a feature that nearly all hosting providers offer as part of their packages. You'll have to check out how frequently they do that, though, because some providers create a backup once every couple of days, that could be far from enough for a booking website or an e-commerce portal where the information is updated daily. Make sure that you see how quick and simple a backup can be restored, which could be vital if some issue appears on your website.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll never worry about your website content if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, due to the fact that our system generates regular copies of everything you upload or create inside the account. What's more, this happens at least 4 times daily, so the worst that can happen shall be for your Internet site to look the way it did a few hours earlier. This is far better in comparison with what other providers typically offer where you can practically lose days or even weeks of work. The backups are available as browsable folders inside the File Manager section of the hosting Control Panel, so you could just copy the content to the actual domain folder and you'll be all set to go. You may also communicate with us via a support ticket and request a backup to be restored, although you can perform that yourself with no problem using the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel.
