Does anyone know any web hosting company which backup their servers for a shared hosting account. I was just wondering what would happen if I lost my site.
Every serious host makes backups .Sometimes backups don’t work or maybe your web host get out of business leaving you alone with a non working site!
Always make backups yourself or use a second reliable company for backups!
always choose a Reliable host like cpwebhosting.net . they backup their servers Weekly.
There are numerous scripts including h-sphere that will do backups for you. Just take backup at every weekend. This will give you less worry.
also take the backup of MySQL data, as well as all the related information to get it running again.
I lost a complete forum DB in a server move once, even with standard cPanel backups.
All hosting companies providing backups, but i would also suggest don’t trust on single backup.
There are few factors need to be consider as below;
1. Number of backups,
2. Frequency of backups,
3. Storage Media for backups,
4. location and
5. Most important factor is that retrieval of backup.
