A backup is a copy of a site that is kept on a separate server and could 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, etc. Restoring the site the way it was shall remove or minimize the damage the issue may have caused, that's by all means an obviously better option than having to reconstruct the whole site from scratch. While you may download a copy of your content on your laptop, keeping a backup is a function that most website hosting providers include as part of their packages. You'll have to take a look at how frequently they do that, though, because some providers generate a backup only once every couple of days, which can be far from enough for a booking site or an e-commerce portal in which the data is updated daily. It's adviseable to see how fast and easy a backup could be restored, which could be vital if some issue appears on your Internet site.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Website Hosting
Because we understand how vital your site information is, we keep daily backups of all your files and databases, so if anything bad happens, the website may be restored just the way it was. What is more, we generate at least four individual backups each day, so what will be restored will be pretty much identical with, if not exactly the same as, what you had before. You may browse the backups right through the File Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and see on what day and at what hour they were performed. Then you can simply copy the content to the live site folder. As an alternative, you could contact us and we will restore the backup from the desired date for you. We keep backups regardless of which shared website hosting you have selected, so you will never have to worry about losing any part of your web content.
