What information do the weekly VPS backups include? How exactly does this backup service function?
Even if you take advantage of the best hardware and software around, there is always a chance that something could go wrong after an update, for example. In such situations, it would be very useful if you have a backup of your content because you will prevent or reduce the loss of files and you could restore the proper functioning of your websites instantly. If you use a shared Internet hosting account, standard backups are created by your service provider, but this is not the case if you've got a virtual or a dedicated server and an issue may lead to the loss of valuable files. To avoid this sort of situations, we provide a backup upgrade for our hosting server solutions, so that we can keep a copy of your information safely on an independent web server and restore the content if required. That way you will not need to be worried about losing anything even if you have important information on the machine.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting
and you decide that you would like a backup of your content, you'll be able to include this service with a few clicks and our system will start keeping copies each week right away. You'll be able to obtain the upgrade alongside the hosting server or at some point later via your billing Control Panel if you do not need backups from the start. The service will give you 50 gigabytes of disk space on a separate machine and this content can be restored on our end. Although we check the equipment and the software before we hand over any new dedicated server, you may never know if some update won't crash, so if you have critical data on the server, you'll be better off with this upgrade. Backups can also be found with the Managed Services upgrade, which includes a lot of other useful administration tasks that we supply to our clients.
