Find out how the weekly backups available with the Virtual Private Servers operate and what data is protected.
Unlike a shared website hosting account in which the information is backed up by the service provider, if you use a virtual or a dedicated hosting server you will need to keep manual backups because such a service is not provided by default. As good as a server may be, there is always the possibility that something might go wrong. For example, you may delete some content accidentally or a script-driven application might get corrupted after an update. In case you have a backup, you shall not need to worry about this kind of problems as the content can be easily restored. Considering that it may not be very practical to do this constantly on your end, we offer an optional backup service for every one of our server plans and we will store a copy of your content on an independent hosting server to be certain that it is undamaged no matter what. With the upgrade, you can work on your web server without worrying that you may lose any data due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you use one of our dedicated web hosting plans
, you'll be able to reap the benefits of the optional backup service with just two mouse clicks. You can add it during the initial signup and have backups generated the moment your machine is installed and operating or you could add it later via your CP if you decide that you shall need it for the future. With this service, 50 GB of disk space on an individual web server will be reserved for you all the time, so if anything bad happens with a website or some other web app, we shall speedily restore the information. You'll be able to get weekly backups not just as an independent service, but also as part of our Managed Services pack, which features various other tasks that our professionals can perform for you like installing third-party apps and updating the Operating System of your dedicated server. This will permit you to work on your web applications without needing to worry that something might go not as planned.
