What is Offline BackUp

Offline BackUp is an optional future and can be added with certain products such as Shared Hosting, DirectAdmin Reseller Hosting, Website Design and Cpanel Reseller Hosting, however, it can be added with all available services If requested. All Offline BackUp is done manually and carefully moved on outside storage server which is not connected to the internet to prevent outside threads to modify any existing files.


Do I need Offline BackUp?

Yes and No, this depends, however, we always say "Is better to feel safe than sorry". Cybercriminals are getting better and better each day and sometimes they find a way to hack and delete/modify information even from the most secure servers. VFEmail has learned this in the hard way when a hacker gained access to all their servers and started to format all servers which lead to a massive loss. They basically lost almost 20 years of work.

Having Offline BackUp will prevent an attacker to delete/modify any BackUp files. Our servers have an automatic backup that is kept on the server and you can always make a back up yourself and keep it safe. If you need help to create a full backup please follow this link How to create a full backup. If an attacker gets access to your website he can delete/modify everything he wishes and your data can be lost forever.
