Inmotion Hosting: Do I have to run backups on my server?

Automatic remote backups

We run an automatic remote backup service on all VPSshared hosting, and Reseller accounts under 10GB in size.This service is not automatic for our Dedicated Server plans and must be purchased additionally.

These backups run every 24-36 hours for emergency purposes, and a data restoration can be requested in AMP.

Should I rely on automatic backups?

Backups overwrite previous backup data, so we strongly recommend maintaining backups of your own as well.

Remote backups are for disaster recovery, and shouldn’t be viewed as an option for guaranteed data recovery.

Creating and restoring your own backups

There are multiple options available to allow you to backup files on your account or server.

You also have various options available to restore files as well.
