|Does Netshine automatically backup all of my data?|
Yes, we run a backup of all of our hosting accounts every day. The backup copies all of your files and databases into a secure folder on the server, so if something goes horribly wrong, we can normally restore your account to how it was the previous day (if you leave it longer than a day to contact us, it is probably too late). Please DO NOT rely on this service alone, as we do not guarantee to be able to recover any data that may be lost (although we will of course do our best).
If you are hosting a Joomla website, it is unlikely that the actual files will change much - so you can just keep a copy on your local PC. However, if you are constantly updating your site, you will probably want to backup your Joomla database on a regular basis. We recommend using MyRepono - a 3rd party off-site backup service which lets you select what to back up, how often, and how long to keep backups for. This costs just pennies per day, and you can get £5 free credit by using this link: http://www.netshinehosting.com/myrepono.html.
