Understand how the weekly backups offered with the Virtual Private Servers function and just what data is backed up.
Different from a shared Internet hosting account in which the info is backed up by the service provider, if 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 good as a server may be, there's always the possibility that something may go wrong. As an example, you might delete some content by accident or a script-driven program may get damaged after an update. If you have a backup, you won't have to worry about this sort of issues as the content can be easily restored. Considering that it may not be really handy to do this constantly on your end, we offer an optional backup service for all our web server packages and we'll store a copy of your content on a separate machine to ensure that it's unharmed no matter what. With the upgrade, you can work on your hosting server without worrying that you might lose any information due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in VPS Servers
The backup service could be ordered anytime and with any VPS server
package regardless of the Operating System or the CP that you have selected. It takes just a few mouse clicks to perform that and the additional service shall be available both on the order page and within your billing Control Panel, so you'll be able to determine if you'd like weekly copies of your content to be kept from the moment you get the virtual private server or just during particular months. The upgrade may also be renewed whenever you want, so when you determine that you no longer require it eventually, it shall not be attached permanently to your package. Of course, it is always better to know that your site content is safely backed up and can be restored no matter what. You could get weekly backups not only as a standalone element, but also as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, which features a variety of web server management services.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
When you select one of our Linux dedicated servers
, it'll take you just a several clicks to include the backup service that we offer, so you won't have to worry about any critical information that you have on the machine. The upgrade comes with 50 gigabytes of disk space on a separate machine and goes through on a weekly basis. You can get it alongside the dedicated web server and have backups from the very start or you can include it in an existing account from the billing CP. The conventional backups are also included inside our Managed Services bundle, which will make the administration of your dedicated server simpler since it includes other useful features also - OS updates, custom work from our staff, etcetera. With a copy of your content kept safely and securely, you could improve your websites and keep them up-to-date all of the time since you will always have a backup that could be restored in a couple of minutes if anything goes wrong.
