What info do the weekly VPS backups include? How does this backup service function?
Different from a shared website hosting account where the data is backed up by the service provider, if you employ a virtual or a dedicated server you'll have to keep manual backups because such a service isn't included by default. As fantastic as a hosting server may be, there is always a chance that something might go wrong. As an example, you can delete some content accidentally or a script-driven app could get corrupted after an update. If you have a backup, you will not need to be concerned about such problems as the content could be easily restored. As it may not be quite practical to do this constantly on your end, we provide an optional backup service for each of our server solutions and we shall store a copy of your content on an individual machine to make sure that it's undamaged no matter what. With the upgrade, you could work on your hosting server without needing to worry that you may lose any information due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you decide that you need a backup of your content, you could add this service with a few clicks and our system will start keeping copies on a weekly basis at once. You can purchase the upgrade together with the web server or at some point later via your billing CP in case that you don't need backups from the very beginning. The service will grant you 50 gigabytes of disk space on a separate server and this content may be restored on our end. Though we test out the equipment and the software before we hand over any new dedicated web server, you can never know if some update won't crash, so in case you have crucial data on the hosting server, you'd 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 we offer to our customers.
