What data do the weekly VPS backups include? How exactly does this backup service work?
Different from a shared Internet hosting account where the information is backed up by the provider, when you employ a virtual or a dedicated server you will need to keep manual backups because this kind of a service isn't provided by default. As excellent as a hosting server may be, there's always the possibility that something may go wrong. For example, you may delete some content by accident or a script-driven app might get corrupted after an update. If you have a backup, you won't have to concern yourself with such issues because the content can be easily restored. Considering that it may not be really convenient to do this all of the time on your end, we provide an optional backup service for all of our server packages and we'll store a copy of your content on an independent machine to be certain that it's undamaged no matter what. With the upgrade, you'll be able to work on your web server without worrying that you could lose any information due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in VPS Web Hosting
You will be able to include the backup service to your new virtual private servers
with only a few clicks and our system will start creating a copy of your content on a weekly basis, so if you require any file or database to be restored, we'll be able to do this for you in no time. If you wish to have backups straight away, you'll be able to opt for this feature during the virtual private server signup procedure. Otherwise, you can choose the service at any time from your billing CP and we'll begin creating backups right away. Because the upgrade is renewable, you shall be able to choose if you'd like to use it during the entire time you employ the virtual machine or just during specific months - after and before an important upgrade of your Internet sites, for example. This way you'll not need to worry that something may go wrong and you could lose your data. The backups are also part of our Managed Services bundle, that you can include to your VPS and make use of numerous admin services we offer.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you choose one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
, it'll take you only a couple of mouse clicks to add the backup service we offer, so you will not need to worry about any valuable info you have on the web server. The upgrade comes with 50 gb of disk space on an independent server and goes through on a weekly basis. You could get it along with the dedicated server and have backups from the beginning or you can include it in an existing account through the billing CP. The regular backups are also included in our Managed Services bundle, that will make the administration of your dedicated web server simpler as it includes other useful functions too - OS updates, custom work from our admins, etcetera. With a copy of your information kept securely, you could improve your sites and keep them up-to-date all of the time as you will always have a backup that can be restored in a couple of minutes if anything fails.
