Below, we answer your most common questions about the HostPapa Website Backup service.
Your data is backed up once every 24 hours (see the next answer for a list of what types of files are backed up). HostPapa Website Backup maintains up to 30 restore points (versions) for your data, for easy version control and restoration.
HostPapa Website Backup will store copies of all of your account-level website files, including:
For ultimate efficiency and usefulness, HostPapa Website Backup uses daily incremental backup to store your files.
Here's how it works:
As soon as you purchase website backup, the first backup saves and stores a full copy of everything on your web hosting account.
From that point on, HostPapa Website Backup will identify and back up only those files that have changed since the last backup. This saves time and disk space.
For example, let's say you activate HostPapa Website Backup on a Monday. A full backup is completed that day. On Tuesday, only the changes that have been made since Monday are saved. On Wednesday, only those files that have changed since Tuesday will be backed up.
This service is sold on a HostPapa web hosting control panel (cPanel) account basis. This means that one HostPapa Website Backup account will cover all domains (including addon domains) associated with one cPanel account.
If you have more than one cPanel account – generally this would be if you have more than one HostPapa account – you will need to purchase additional HostPapa Website Backup packages. You will receive 1GB of storage and for each package your purchase. Every HostPapa Website Backup account will save up to 30 restore points for your data.
You may purchase additional HostPapa Website Backup accounts anytime through your HostPapa dashboard.
Of course! Every HostPapa Website Backup plan includes the ability to store (and restore) up to 1GB of mission critical data. While this is ample space for the vast majority of our customers, some HostPapa clients do have websites or data files (photos, videos, or other files) that require more than 1GB of backup space.
You may purchase additional backup space from HostPapa after the first full backup has completed. This is within 24 hours of your HostPapa Website Backup purchase.
HostPapa Website Backup will keep up to 30 restore points for your files. You may choose to restore back to any of these 30 versions at any time.
HostPapa provides continuous backup of all its servers and equipment, including backing up all hard drives and data onto secondary RAID drives. This is server-level backup in case of hardware-related issues.
With any shared web hosting service, it's possible to encounter any number of other issues that may affect your data and would not be protected by server-level backup. These may include:
It is essential to have premium secondary level backup of all your mission critical data. For a small monthly fee, you'll be able to restore your data from a previous version anytime you need to do so. Quick, do-it-yourself website recovery – from any web browser, any time.
All of your backed up data is stored on a different website (or cloud) server, in a different physical location, than the server on which your shared web hosting and database files reside. Off-site backup of this sort offers excellent security and protection for your data.
HostPapa Website Backup's backup server is configured with a 448-bit encryption that can only be accessed with an encryption password. The encryption password is sent along with every scheduled backup of your files in order to verify your account. We have taken every precaution to ensure that client data cannot be interfered with.
Within 24 hours of purchasing a HostPapa Website Backup account, a full backup of all files related to your web hosting account will be completed. This will happen automatically. After the first full backup, a daily incremental backup will also happen automatically.
In other words, you don't have to do a thing – until you want to restore any or all of your files. For a full explanation of the HostPapa Website Backup easy restore process, please see How do I restore my files using HostPapa Website Backup?
A huge relief
One of our employees accidentally saved incorrect versions of some of our key files on top of the latest updated documents. We didn't even notice until two days later. This could have been a complete disaster for us – not to mention our clients – if we didn't have HostPapa Website Backup. It was a huge relief to be able to restore exactly the version we needed.
Excellent value for the price
HostPapa Website Backup took us about 10 minutes to set up – ease of installation is always important for us when choosing any new service or product.
We'd like to let others know just how little time it takes to be completely safe from any number of data issues, self-inflicted or otherwise. I highly recommend this service; excellent value for the price.
Efficient automated backup service
We badly needed an efficient automated backup service – although it was part of our weekly plan, we would forget to manually back up our databases, and when we did, it seemed to take forever. This was becoming a real concern for our eCommerce store...
The price of the HostPapa Website Backup service really caught our eye. We have purchased additional server space on two occasions, and HostPapa support has been super quick to respond to our requests. So far so good!
