Understand how the weekly backups provided with the Virtual Private Servers operate and what data is protected.
Even if you use the most efficient hardware and software out there, there's always a possibility that something could go wrong after some update, for instance. In these cases, it would be very useful if you have a backup of your content as you will avoid or limit the loss of information and you can restore the correct operation of your sites quickly. When you use a shared website hosting account, standard backups are made by the provider, but this is not the case in case you have got a virtual or a dedicated server and a predicament may result in the loss of important information. To avoid such scenarios, we provide a backup upgrade for our hosting server solutions, so that we can keep a copy of your info safely on an independent server and restore the content when required. That way you will not have to concern yourself with losing anything even when you have important information on the server.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you employ one of our dedicated web hosting plans
, you'll be able to take advantage of the optional backup service with only a few clicks. You'll be able to include it during the initial signup and have backups made the instant your server is installed and operating or you'll be able to add it afterwards using your CP in case you decide that you shall need it for the future. With this service, 50 GB of disk space on an individual server shall be reserved for you at all times, so in case anything fails with a site or some other web application, we could promptly restore the content. You could get weekly backups not just as an independent service, but also as a part of our Managed Services pack, which incorporates various other tasks which our admins can perform for you like installing third-party applications and updating the OS of your dedicated server. This will enable you to work on your web apps without needing to worry that something could go not as planned.
