Backups are an important part of web site administration. When you keep backup copies of your website’s files and configurations in a safe location, you can use them to restore your web site in the event something happens that prevents it from functioning correctly.
Keeping a recent working backup of your website files is important. D2host is here to help you with this key web hosting feature by helping you backup your own website files and information. We also do daily & weekly server backups, so you can be certain your information is safe. However Backups are not included as part of any service. It is the customer's sole responsibility to make backups and save them elsewhere off server. Availability of server backups is not guaranteed and we are not responsible for loss of customer data. Customers are advised to make backups of the information they store on our servers on a regular basis. Our Control Panel provides tools that allow customers' to make data backups, download data, download backups, etc.
You are responsible for your backups and web content.
A "Backup/Restore" feature is included in cPanel/Plesk with each hosting plan and you can use this tool to back up your files
We create weekly backups of our Shared & Reseller hosting accounts that are UPTO 2 GB and 70,000 inodes.
While we make every attempt to ensure the reliability of our backup system, we are unable to guarantee that a specific version or date of your files will be available at anytime. We cannot guarantee the backup will contain the exact desired content for every customer, since the backups are scheduled and overwrite previous backups.
Your e-mail messages are located in the "mailstore" directory of your home directory, and are therefore backed up automatically.
However, we can only back up messages that are actually on our servers. This includes all new (unread) mail and all mail you can see in Webmail. It will not include old (previously read) incoming messages if you read mail using a program like Outlook on your own computer and you've configured that e-mail program to delete messages from the server when you read them.
So if you use your own mail program instead of webmail, and that program deletes messages from the server after they've been read, your computer will have the only copy of the old messages. You'd need to back up your own computer to make a backup of that old incoming mail and your sent mail.
If you want our backup system to store copies of your old incoming messages, too, you should make sure your mail program leaves messages on our servers after you read them. With an IMAP connection, this will happen automatically; with a POP connection, you may need to change a setting in your mail program.
Finally, keep in mind that we can only back up e-mail that's stored in a mailbox on our servers. Any messages that you simply forward to another site will never reach our backup system in the first place. (Whoever handles the final delivery should be backing them up there, of course.)
