A backup of a website is a copy of its content, that is kept on a different server and could be restored if something happens. This function is very useful, considering that you can't know if a script update will not fail or if you will not eliminate something unintentionally - a file, a folder, a database entry, and so on. When your website is backed up, it could be restored the way it was before the problem appeared, so there shall not be any damage, or at least it will be minimal, based on the specific situation. Keeping backups on your personal computer is not very feasible, because you'll have to do it at least once every day and you can still lose data if your last backup is not recent enough. In this light, you will have to rely on your web hosting provider, so you must double-check their policy on the backups, because some providers create backups just once a week, that will do no good if a problem occurs with a site that is being used and updated all the time, such as an online store, for instance.

Daily Data Back-up in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting provide daily content backups by default. This option will permit you to develop your sites without worrying if something can 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 super easy and usually takes just a few minutes - either you can use a support ticket and mention the time frame of the backup you want to be restored, or you may simply copy the backed-up files, since they will be available in read-only folders within the File Manager section of your web hosting Control Panel. Every single backup folder contains the exact date and time it was produced in its name, so you will be able to instantly locate and copy the content you need, even in case you don't have any prior experience with this sort of matters.
