When you manage a website, having a backup is something really necessary, particularly if you have important information or you have invested time and cash in creating the Internet site. There are various scenarios why you may require a backup - if you update a script and something breaks down, if you eliminate a file or a whole folder unintentionally, and so on. 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 could download a copy of your content on your computer system every now and then, but because you can't do that after each and every change, you need to rely on the backups your hosting provider generates. As that is something rather vital, you need to ensure that they keep up-to-date backups, given that a backup executed once every one or two weeks will not do any good in case you run a site such as an online store or an accommodation reservations portal.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting include daily content backups as a standard. This option will allow you to develop your websites without worrying if something may go wrong, since our system generates a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is quite simple and requires only a few minutes - you may either use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you can simply copy the backed-up files, since they shall be available in read-only folders inside the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Every single backup folder contains the exact time and date it was created in its name, so you will be able to swiftly locate and copy the content which you need, even when you don't have any preceding experience with such matters.
