What data do the weekly VPS backups feature? How exactly does this backup service work?
Even when you use the finest software and hardware available, there is always a possibility that something might go wrong after an update, for instance. In such conditions, it would be very useful if you have a backup of your content because you will prevent or minimize the loss of info and you'll be able to restore the proper operation of your websites right away. If you use a shared website hosting account, standard backups are created by your service provider, but this isn't the situation if you have a virtual or a dedicated server and a problem may lead to the loss of valuable information. To avoid this type of cases, we offer a backup upgrade for our server plans, so that we can keep a copy of your information safely on a separate web server and restore the content if needed. This way you will not have to concern yourself with losing anything even in the event that you have very important data on the server.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you employ one of our Linux dedicated web hosting, you could use the optional backup service with just a few clicks. You can add it during the initial signup and have backups generated the minute your server is operational or you could add it later on from your Control Panel if you decide that you'll need it for the future. With this service, 50 Gigabytes of disk space on an individual server will be reserved for you all of the time, so in the event that anything bad happens with a website or some other web app, we could promptly restore the content. You can get weekly backups not only as an independent service, but also as an element of our Managed Services pack, which includes a number of other tasks our administrators can do for you such as installing third-party programs and updating the Operating System of your dedicated web server. This shall permit you to work on your web applications without worrying that something might go not as planned.
