What data do the weekly VPS backups include? Precisely how does this backup service work?
Different from a shared hosting account in which the information is backed up by the provider, if you use a virtual or a dedicated server you'll need to keep manual backups as this type of a service is not provided by default. As great as a hosting server may be, there's always a chance that something might go wrong. For instance, you may delete some content by accident or a script-driven application could get damaged after an update. If you have a backup, you will not need to bother about this type of issues as the content could be easily restored. Since it may not be quite handy to do this regularly on your end, we supply an optional backup service for all of our web server plans and we will store a copy of your content on an independent server to be certain that it is intact no matter what. With the upgrade, you'll be able to work on your web server without having to worry that you could lose any data due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you employ one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting, you can use the optional backup service with only a few clicks. You'll be able to add it during the initial signup and have backups generated the minute your hosting server is up and running or you'll be able to add it later on through your CP in case you decide that you'll need it for the future. With this service, fifty Gigabytes of disk space on a separate hosting server shall be reserved for you all the time, so if anything bad happens with a site or some other web app, we can promptly restore the information. You could get weekly backups not only as an independent service, but also as part of our Managed Services pack, which incorporates many other tasks which our admins can perform for you such as installing third-party apps and updating the OS of your dedicated hosting server. This shall allow you to work on your web apps without having to worry that something might go not as planned.
