Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

Web Hosting Shared Backups are an integral part of any web hosting account and web hosting services. Adding a backup solution to your Shared or Business Hosting account with Hostwinds is simple to do and will provide you with up to three hundred and sixty four days worth of backups that you can restore at anytime. This can be very useful if you make changes to your website, if your website gets hacked, if something important gets deleted that needs to be restored from a backup right away, or if you just want to have a piece of mind that your data is available for you to restore at anytime.
