When you run a site, having a backup is something extremely necessary, specifically if you have important data or you have invested cash and time in creating the site. There are numerous situations why you may require a backup - if you update a script and something breaks down, if you eliminate a file or an entire 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'll be able to download a copy of your content on your desktop or notebook once in a while, but as you cannot do that after each and every change, you must rely on the backups that your hosting provider generates. Since that is something rather vital, you have to ensure that they keep up-to-date backups, because a backup executed once every one or two weeks won't do any good when you run an Internet site like an online store or an accommodation reservation portal.
Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system creates a full copy of the files and databases in every single semi-dedicated server account set up on our cutting-edge website hosting platform, so if you host your websites with us, you will never need to worry about data loss, particularly having in mind that the copies are produced at least 4 times every day and are kept for at least one week. Restoring the content usually takes no more than a couple of minutes and may be completed in 2 ways. The first one is to open a support ticket with that request, suggesting from which specific date you want the data backup to be restored. Another way is to restore the content all by yourself, as the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the CP and you can easily take a look at them freely to see what each folder contains. All it will take 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 each backup within the account, so you can use the one you need.
