Understand how the weekly backups provided with the Virtual Private Servers work as well as what data is backed up.
Even when you take advantage of the very best software and hardware around, there is always a possibility that something may go wrong after an update, for example. In these situations, it would be handy if you have a backup of your content since you will steer clear of or reduce the loss of data and you could restore the correct functionality of your websites promptly. If you use a shared hosting account, regular backups are created by the service provider, but this isn't the case when you have got a virtual or a dedicated server and a problem could lead to the loss of valuable information. To avoid this kind of scenarios, we offer a backup upgrade for our server plans, so that we can keep a copy of your data safely and securely on an independent hosting server and restore the content when required. In this way you will not need to worry about losing anything even when you have critical data on the hosting server.
Weekly Backup in VPS Servers
You can get the backup upgrade anytime and with only several mouse clicks no matter the VPS server
plan that you select. Depending on when you want to take advantage of this service, you'll be able to order it during the VPS order process and we'll start generating backups straight from the creation of the server or you can add it through your billing Control Panel later and we will keep a copy of your files from that point on. You could renew the upgrade for so long as you need it and we will create and keep a few weekly backups, so that we can restore any info in the server immediately if needed. The entire content on the virtual hosting server shall be backed up, hence no matter if you need an older version of some files or a database, we shall have it. With this upgrade you'll not have to worry about losing precious data in the case of an unforeseen problem.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers
and you decide that you require a backup of your content, you could add this service with a couple of mouse clicks and our system shall start keeping copies each week straight away. You'll be able to get the upgrade alongside the web server or at some point later via your billing CP in case that you do not need backups from the start. The service shall grant you fifty gb of disk space on a separate hosting server and this content can be restored on our end. Even though we test out the equipment and the software before we hand over any new dedicated web server, you may never know if some update won't crash, so in the event you have critical info on the hosting server, you'd be better off with this upgrade. Backups are also offered with the Managed Services upgrade, which includes a lot of other useful admin tasks we offer to our clients.
