What data do the weekly VPS backups feature? How exactly does this backup service function?
Unlike a shared web hosting account in which the information is backed up by the provider, if you use a virtual or a dedicated hosting server you will have to keep manual backups as this type of a service isn't supplied by default. As excellent as a server could be, there's always a chance that something might go wrong. For instance, you could delete some content by accident or a script-driven program could get corrupted after an update. In case you have a backup, you won't need to worry about this type of issues since the content could be easily restored. As it may not be very handy to do this constantly on your end, we provide an optional backup service for all of our web server packages and we'll store a copy of your content on an individual hosting server to be certain that it's unharmed no matter what. With the upgrade, you can work on your web server without having to worry that you might lose any information due to any reason.
Weekly Backup in Dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting and you determine that you would like a backup of your content, you may include this service with a couple of mouse clicks and our system will start keeping copies on a weekly basis immediately. You could order the upgrade alongside the hosting server or at some point after using your billing Control Panel in case that you don't need backups from the very start. The service will give you 50 gigabytes of disk space on an individual machine and this content may be restored on our end. Though we test 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 machine, you'd be better off with this upgrade. Backups are also available with the Managed Services upgrade, which includes many other useful administration tasks which we offer to our customers.
