What info do the weekly VPS backups include? How does this backup service function?
Unlike a shared web hosting account where the info is backed up by the service provider, when you employ a virtual or a dedicated server you will have to keep manual backups since this type of a service is not supplied by default. As superior as a web server may be, there's always a possibility that something could go wrong. For instance, you can delete some content accidentally or a script-driven program could get corrupted after an update. In case you have a backup, you shall not need to worry about this type of issues because the content could be easily restored. Considering that it may not be quite practical to do this all the time on your end, we supply an optional backup service for each of our server solutions and we shall store a copy of your content on an independent machine to make sure that it is unharmed no matter what. With the upgrade, you can work on your server without having to worry that you could lose any info due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in VPS Servers
You will be able to add the backup service to your new VPS servers
with a number of mouse clicks and our system will start creating a copy of all your content on a weekly basis, so if you want any file or database to be restored, we will be able to do this for you very quickly. If you prefer to have backups right away, you ought to select this feature during the VPS signup process. Alternatively, you'll be able to choose the service anytime through your billing CP and we shall start producing backups right away. Because the upgrade is renewable, you'll be able to decide if you wish to use it during the entire time you employ the virtual machine or just during specific months - before and after an important upgrade of your websites, for example. In this way you will not need to be concerned that something could go wrong and you might lose your data. The backups are also a part of our Managed Services bundle, which you can include to your virtual private server and take advantage of various administration services that we offer.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Servers
When you use one of our dedicated web hosting plans
, you'll be able to take advantage of the optional backup service with just two clicks. You'll be able to add it during the initial signup and have backups made the minute your machine is up and running or you can add it later using your Control Panel just in case you decide that you will need it for the future. With this service, 50 GB of disk space on an individual server shall be reserved for you at all times, so if anything bad happens with an Internet site or some other web app, we shall immediately restore the info. You could get weekly backups not only as an individual service, but also as a part of our Managed Services pack, which features many other tasks that our administrators can do for you like installing third-party apps and updating the Operating System of your dedicated web server. This would enable you to work on your web applications without having to worry that something may go not as planned.
