A backup of an Internet site is a copy of its content, that's kept on some other server and may be restored if something happens. This option is rather useful, because you can't know if a script update will not crash or if you won't delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be very little, depending on the particular scenario. Keeping backups on your PC isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you would need to do it at least once a day and you can still lose info if your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your website hosting company, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some providers generate backups just once per week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that is being used and updated constantly, like an online store, for instance.

All files and databases hosted inside a web hosting account on our cloud platform are duplicated regularly, so regardless of what happens with your website, we'll have a duplicate of your content and we will be able to restore it before you know it. We've surpassed what other suppliers can offer in this regard, simply because our system produces a copy at least four times each day. If you need any content to be restored, you should contact our tech support team via a trouble ticket and they'll do what is needed within the hour, restoring the content from the time period you want. Alternatively, you may also check out the backups via your Hepsia CP. They shall be listed inside the File Manager section and sorted by date and time.
