What data do the weekly VPS backups include? Precisely how does this backup service work?
Unlike a shared website hosting account where the data is backed up by the service provider, if you use a virtual or a dedicated server you will need to keep manual backups as this sort of a service is not included by default. As excellent as a server might be, there's always a possibility that something may go wrong. For instance, 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 will not have to concern yourself with this type of issues because the content could be easily restored. As it may not be really practical to do this regularly on your end, we provide an optional backup service for all our hosting server plans and we will store a copy of your content on an individual machine to be certain that it's unharmed no matter what. With the upgrade, you can work on your web server without worrying that you could lose any info due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in VPS Servers
The backup service can be ordered whenever you want and with any VPS server
package deal no matter the OS or the CP that you have chosen. It takes only a few clicks to perform that and the additional service shall be available both on the order page and within your billing CP, so you could decide if you would like weekly copies of your data to be kept from the time you get the virtual private server or only during particular months. The upgrade could also be renewed whenever you want, so when you decide that you no longer need it at some point, it shall not be attached permanently to your plan. Needless to say, it's always better to know that your content is safely backed up and could be restored no matter what. You'll be able to get weekly backups not only as a standalone function, but also as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes a number of web server administration services.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans
and you determine that you need a backup of your content, you can add this service with a couple of clicks and our system shall start keeping copies each week straight away. You could get the upgrade along with the web server or at some point later via your billing CP in the event that you do not need backups from the very beginning. The service shall grant you fifty gigabytes of disk space on an individual machine and this content may be restored on our end. Though we check the components and the software before we hand over any new dedicated hosting server, you could never know if some update won't crash, so if you have important information on the server, you will be better off with this upgrade. Backups can also be found with the Managed Services upgrade, which features a lot of other useful management tasks we provide to our customers.
