Different from a shared hosting account where the data is backed up by the hosting company, if you employ a virtual or a dedicated web server you will have to keep manual backups since such a service is not provided by default. As excellent as a server could be, there is always the possibility that something may go wrong. For instance, you could delete some content by accident or a script-driven app may get corrupted after an update. If you have a backup, you won't need to worry about this sort of issues because the content could be easily restored. As it may not be very convenient to do this all of the time on your end, we offer an optional backup service for all our web server plans and we shall store a copy of your content on an independent server to make certain that it is unharmed no matter what. With the upgrade, you could work on your server without worrying that you could lose any data due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans
and you determine that you require a backup of your content, you'll be able to add this service with a couple of mouse clicks and our system shall start keeping copies on a weekly basis at once. You can order the upgrade alongside the machine or at some point after through your billing Control Panel in the event that you do not need backups from the very beginning. The service shall grant you 50 gb of disk space on a separate web server and this content could be restored on our end. Even though we check the hardware and the software before we hand over any new dedicated server, you can never know if some update will not fail, so in case you have crucial information on the web server, you'd be better off with this upgrade. Backups are also available with the Managed Services upgrade, which includes many other useful administration tasks we supply to our customers.
