A major requirement for our market is the ability to securely and effectively backup online data while still having to cope with the relatively slow internet connectivity of local markets that prevents local IT professionals from downloading large backup files on a frequent basis to secure remote backup of data.
While normal backup solutions secure data being backed up on the same site as the hosting solution, NetDesignPlus Off-Server Backup Service keeps a safe backup copy of your website on a secondary secured server for emergency usage. In the event of a server or hard disk crash, NetDesignPlus will restore your website in the quickest possible manner and with minimal effect with respect to data loss.
Why Do I Need an Off-Server Website Backup?
While we do our best efforts to keep our servers updated from a hardware and software point of view, server crashes and natural disasters are inevitable.
Like any web hosting company, NetDesignPlus is responsible for software updates and server management. We always take our service one step further by offering server monitoring, attack alerts and security checks to ensure your website is safe and secured 24/24 7/7. We also provide our hosted websites with an On-Server backup service free of charge. This, however, does not prevent server crashes from occurring due to hardware failures and natural disasters.
In the unlikely event of a server crash, the Off-Server website backup is the only solution to get your website back with a recent copy instead of having to restart your website from scratch. This type of crashes might lead to your business loss.
What is the Difference between On-Server Backups and Off-Server Backups?
All our servers are equipped with double hard drives / disks: one segment for your website content and another segment for backups. Backups are performed every week on Sunday morning. When a hard drive crash occurs, the secondary hard drive is very useful since it helps restore the server back into normal operation with minimal downtime. This, however, does not guarantee protection against natural disasters or extreme hardware failures such as server crashes.
Off-Server backups are handy when server crashes or natural disasters occur since they help us restore websites back into normal operation with minimal downtime. Furthermore, since backups are stored on high-speed servers, the time required to restore website information and files after server crashes and natural disasters is dramatically decreased.
