A backup of a site is a copy of its content, which is kept on a different server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is very handy, considering that you can't know if a script update will not go wrong or if you will not erase something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it may be restored the way it was prior to when the issue appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, based on the specific case. Keeping backups on your personal computer isn't very feasible, as you would need to do it at least once each day and you can still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will need to rely on your hosting company, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, due to the fact that some providers create backups just once every week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with an Internet site that's being used and updated all of the time, such as an online store, for example.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated servers provide regular content backups as a standard. This option will permit you to develop your websites and never having to worry if something can go wrong, since our system generates a new backup every several hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite an earlier one. Restoring the content is easy and usually takes a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you may just copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they will be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your web hosting CP. Each backup folder contains the exact date and time it was created in its name, so you could easily locate and copy the content which you need, even when you don't have any preceding experience with this type of matters.
