A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that's kept on a different server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is rather efficient, because you can't know if a script update won't go wrong or if you won't eliminate something by accident - 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 shall not be any damage, or at least it'll be minimal, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, because you'd have to do it at least once a day and you may still lose information if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your hosting provider, so you have to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers create backups just once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that's being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for example.
Daily Data Back-up in Shared Hosting
If you acquire any of the shared hosting packages that we provide, you'll be able to benefit from the backup feature provided with our packages by default and at no extra cost. We will create a copy of your files and databases not once, but at least 4 times a day, so every time an issue shows up on your site for whatever reason, we'll easily restore everything, and in the worst type of scenario, your Internet site shall be restored the way it was only a few hours ago. There are two ways for a backup to be restored - you can contact us with a support ticket and we'll do what’s needed on our end within an hour, or you could directly copy the information from the backup to the live Internet site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, where you will find all the backups that have been created listed in chronological order.
