A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is rather practical, given that you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you won't delete something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etc. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was until the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it'll be small, based on the particular situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once each day and you can still lose information in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your hosting provider, so you need to double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies generate backups once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site which is being used and updated at all times, like an online store, for example.

When you buy any of the shared web hosting plans we offer, you can take full advantage of the backup feature provided with our packages by default and without extra cost. We'll create a copy of your files and databases not once, but a minimum of four times daily, so whenever an issue appears on your website for whatever reason, we'll quickly restore everything, and in the toughest scenario, your Internet site will be restored the way it was just one or two hours ago. There are 2 ways for a backup to be restored - you could contact us through a support ticket and we shall do what’s required on our end within the hour, or you can directly copy the content from the backup to the live site folder from the File Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, in which you will find each of the backups that have been set up listed in chronological order.
