A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different hosting server and could be restored if something happens. This function is quite effective, given that you cannot know if a script update won't fail or if you won't eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. If your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the issue appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be little, dependant upon the specific situation. Keeping backups on your computer system is not very feasible, simply because you'd have to do it at least once daily and you could still lose data in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, as some providers create backups only once a week, which will do no good if a problem occurs with a website that is being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.

All files and databases hosted within a cloud hosting
account on our cloud platform are backed up regularly, so regardless what happens with your website, we will have a duplicate of your content and we'll be able to restore it very quickly.

Furthermore, you might also check out the backups through your Hepsia Control Panel. They'll be listed within the File Manager section and sorted by date and time.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our Linux semi-dedicated plans
offer regular content backups by default. This option will enable you to improve your websites without worrying if something can go wrong, because our system creates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is very simple and will take a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the particular date of the backup which 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 in 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 could instantly locate and copy the content you need, even if you don't have any previous experience with this sort of matters.
