A backup of a site is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different web server and can be restored if something happens. This feature is quite handy, considering that you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you won't eliminate something by accident - a file, a folder, a database entry, etcetera. If your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was until the problem appeared, so there will not be any damage, or at least it shall be very little, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your computer isn't very feasible, due to the fact that you'd have to do it at least once daily and you may still lose info in case your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you'll need to rely on your web hosting provider, so you ought to double-check their policy on the backups, since some providers create backups only once a week, which will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for instance.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated packages include everyday content backups as a standard. This function will allow you to improve your websites without worrying if something could go wrong, as our system produces a new backup every couple of hours over a seven-day period, so a new backup does not overwrite a previous one. Restoring the content is very simple and requires a few minutes - you can either use a support ticket and mention the date of the backup that you want to be restored, or you could simply copy the backed-up files, due to the fact that they'll be available in read-only folders in the File Manager section of your website hosting CP. Every backup folder contains the exact time and date it was generated in its name, so you will be able to quickly locate and copy the content which you need, even when you do not have any previous experience with this sort of matters.
