When you manage an Internet site, having a backup is something really vital, particularly if you have important data or you have invested time and money in building the website. There are various scenarios why you may need a backup - if you update a script and something goes completely wrong, if you eliminate a file or a whole folder by mistake, and so forth. 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 computer occasionally, but because you can't do that after each change, you must rely on the backups which your web hosting provider generates. Because that's something quite necessary, you need to ensure that they keep up-to-date backups, since a backup executed once every one or two weeks will not do any good when you run a website such as an online store or a holiday accommodation reservations site.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated services include everyday content backups as a standard. This feature will enable you to improve your websites without worrying if something can go wrong, as our system creates a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup doesn't overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is super easy and takes just a few minutes - you may use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup you want to be restored, or you could just copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they'll be available in read-only folders within the File Manager section of your hosting Control Panel. Each and every 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 in case you don't have any prior experience with this kind of matters.
