A backup is a copy of an Internet site which is kept on another web server and can be restored if a problem occurs with the live site - a failed script update, an accidental deletion of a file or of the whole database, and so on. Restoring the site the way it was shall take away or reduce the damage the problem may have caused, that's by all means a certainly better alternative than having to rebuild your whole website from scratch. Though you may download a copy of your content on your computer, keeping a backup is a feature that the majority of hosting companies incorporate as part of their plans. You have to take a look at how often they do that, though, because some companies create a backup just once every 7 days, which might be far from enough for a booking Internet site or an e-commerce portal where the data is updated every single day. It's also advisable to see how fast and easy a backup could be restored, which can be crucial if some problem appears on your site.
