What data do the weekly VPS backups include? Precisely how does this backup service work?
Different from a shared website hosting account in which the info is backed up by the hosting company, if you use a virtual or a dedicated server you'll need to keep manual backups since this kind of a service is not supplied by default. As superior as a server could be, there is always a chance that something may go wrong. For example, you could delete some content accidentally or a script-driven program might get damaged after an update. In case you have a backup, you shall not have to concern yourself with this type of issues since the content can be easily restored. As it may not be really handy to do this all the time on your end, we offer an optional backup service for each of our web server plans and we'll store a copy of your content on an independent server to make certain that it is intact no matter what. With the upgrade, you'll be able to work on your web server without needing to worry that you might lose any info due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in VPS Servers
You will be able to include the backup service to your new VPS servers
with just several clicks and our system shall start creating a copy of your content once a week, so whenever you require any file or database to be restored, we will be able to do this for you in no time. When you would like to have backups right away, you'll be able to select this feature during the VPS signup process. In any other case, you can opt for the service whenever you want through your billing CP and we will start generating backups right away. Since the upgrade is renewable, you'll be able to decide if you would like to use it during the whole time you employ the virtual machine or just during specific months - before and after a significant upgrade of your websites, for example. In this way you will not need to worry that something could go wrong and you may lose your data. The backups are also part of our Managed Services bundle, which you can include to your VPS and make use of various administration services that we provide.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans
and you determine that you would like a backup of your content, you may include this service with a number of mouse clicks and our system will start keeping copies on a weekly basis at once. You could obtain the upgrade together with the server or at some point later on through your billing Control Panel in the event that you don't need backups from the very start. The service shall give you 50 gb of disk space on an individual web server and this content can be restored on our end. Though we examine the equipment and the software before we hand over any new dedicated server, you may never know if some update will not crash, so in the event you have critical info on the server, you would be better off with this upgrade. Backups can also be found with the Managed Services upgrade, which incorporates a lot of other useful admin tasks we offer to our customers.
