Find out how the weekly backups made available with the Virtual Private Servers work and what data is protected.
Different from a shared hosting account in which the info is backed up by the provider, when you use a virtual or a dedicated hosting server you will have to keep manual backups because this sort of a service is not provided by default. As fantastic as a server could be, there's always a chance that something may go wrong. For example, you could delete some content by mistake or a script-driven app may get corrupted after an update. In the event that you have a backup, you won't need to worry about such issues since the content can be easily restored. As it may not be really practical to do this regularly on your end, we supply an optional backup service for all of our server plans and we will store a copy of your content on an individual server to be certain that it's intact no matter what. With the upgrade, you'll be able to work on your machine without worrying that you may lose any info due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you employ one of our Linux dedicated service, you'll be able to take advantage of the optional backup service with just 2 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 could add it later via your Control Panel in case you decide that you shall need it for the future. With this service, fifty Gigabytes of disk space on an individual server will be reserved for you all the time, so if anything fails with an Internet site or some other web application, we can promptly restore the data. You'll be able to get weekly backups not only as an independent service, but also as a part of our Managed Services pack, which incorporates a number of other tasks that our professionals can do for you such as installing third-party programs and updating the Operating System of your dedicated server. This would permit you to work on your web apps without worrying that something can go not as planned.
