A backup is a copy of a website that is kept on an independent hosting server and could be restored if a problem occurs with the live site - an unsuccessful script update, an unintended deletion of some file or of your whole database, etcetera. Restoring the Internet site the way it was will eliminate or reduce the damage the issue may have caused, which is by all means a better option than having to rebuild your entire website from scratch. Though you can download a copy of your content on your laptop, keeping a backup is a function that the majority of hosting providers incorporate as part of their plans. You have to check out how frequently they do that, though, because some service providers create a backup once every 7 days, that could be far from enough for a booking website or an e-commerce portal in which the data is updated every day. You should also see how quick and easy a backup could be restored, which can be vital if some issue appears on your Internet site.

Every backup folder contains the exact date and time it was created in its name, so you can swiftly locate and copy the content that you need, even in case you do not have any preceding experience with this sort of matters.
