If you’re running a website, it would not be a bad idea to consider a backup service. The HostPapa Website Backup service allows you to automatically back up your websites, databases and emails securely in the Cloud. In this article, we go over the reasons why website backup is essential, and take a look at the features and the specifications that HostPapa offers with its website backup solution.
Why Website Backup?
Commercial, government, education and fundraising organizations invest millions of dollars to build and maintain their databases, websites and email systems. For many organizations, these vital systems are the most important means of communicating and transacting business with their customers, constituents, students and donors.
When an organization’s databases, websites or emails are hacked, or go down for any sustained periods of time, they suffer greatly from a variety of negative consequences including:
- Lost sales or fundraising revenue;
- The display of defaced and/or inappropriate content due to a hacker;
- Loss of customer satisfaction, credibility and confidence;
- Employee productivity loss;
- Cost to recreate and restore their data and website presence.
The risks of not having a comprehensive backup system are clearly not worth it.
The team at HostPapa created their industry leading website backup solution to protect organizations from any data disaster for just a small annual fee.

HostPapa Website Backup Specifications
The HostPapa Website Backup solution is not only powerful and secure, but is also very efficient with the use of the customer’s data storage space. The service comes with 1GB of data storage. The solution uses advanced storage processing technology that allows it to perform only incremental daily backups. That means that once the data is backed up for the first time, only changes to the data currently stored are backed up upon subsequent refreshes. This makes the HostPapa Website Backup solution highly efficient with the use of the customer’s storage space. Of course, additional storage can be purchased for a reasonable price anytime.
The HostPapa Website Backup servers are configured with a powerful 448-bit encryption that requires an encrypted password for access to the system. On every scheduled backup, the encryption password is transmitted along with the files, to allow the customer to verify their account.
Once a customer purchases a HostPapa Website Backup account, a complete backup of all the files related to the account will be completed within 24 hours. With the completion of the initial backup, the system will incrementally backup the data every day. It does it automatically, without the need for any operator intervention.
The HostPapa Website Backup solution is a tremendous value at just $2.99 dollars per month. They have live telephone and chat support offered in multiple languages.
HostPapa uses 100 percent green renewable energy to power their operations.
