A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different hosting server and can be restored if something happens. This function is quite effective, considering that you can never know if a script update shall not crash or if you will not delete something accidentally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your site is backed up, it could be restored the way it was prior to when the problem appeared, so there won't be any damage, or at least it will be little, dependant upon the specific scenario. Keeping backups on your computer is not very feasible, since you would need to do it at least once per day and you can still lose information in case your last backup isn't recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting company, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, given that some companies create backups just once each week, that will do no good if something wrong happens with a site that's being used and updated constantly, such as an online store, for example.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system generates a full data backup of the files and databases in every single semi-dedicated server account set up on our cutting-edge hosting platform, so if you host your sites with us, you will never have to worry about information loss, especially having in mind that the backup copies are generated at least four times daily and are kept for a minimum of 7 days. Restoring the content normally takes no more than a couple of minutes and may be carried out in 2 ways. The first one is to open a support ticket with that request, indicating from which particular date you desire the backup to be restored. Another way is to restore the content by yourself, due to the fact that the backups are available inside the File Manager section of the CP and you can easily look through them freely to see what each and every folder features. All it will take to restore a backup is to copy the contents of the backup folder to the domain folder. You will be able to see the timestamp for each and every backup inside the account, so you can use the one you need.
