How do your automated backups work?

Our automated backup solution enables backups to be taken every day, week or month with absolutely no user intervention. Behind the scenes, we mount a snapshot of your virtual disk and rsync the entire contents across to a different server. We then remove the snapshot. This process does not affect the contents on your disk in any way.

If you do need a restore, or need specific files restored from the last backup, you will need to raise a support ticket and we will copy the data back to your VPS. This enables us to restore your VPS to its pre-backup stated if required. Note that only one backup is stored, so it is not possible to restore to a backup from, say, two weeks ago if you are on a weekly backup package.

Pricing can be found on the Virtual Private Servers page.
