OakHosting.NET: The need for backup

Many home users want to be able to upload backups of their important files to the internet. Often people have the idea to use their web hosting plan for this. The trouble is that it is often against the terms and conditions of service, or people find out that the hundreds of gigabytes of space they've been promised aren't really theirs to use.

Many web hosting users want to keep regular backups of their websites. The tricky bit is remembering. Keeping a website backup on the same server as the site is not the most resilient option either.

OakHosting.NET: Enter our backup and storage plans

We are offering you the chance to have access to anywhere from 10 GB to 150 GB of disk space on a shared server. The prices per gigabyte are very reasonable. We have an absolute commitment not to oversell that space, so every GB you sign up for is yours to use.

You can access your data in 6 different ways: FTP (FTPES or SFTP), SSH, SCP, rsync, WebDav and Samba.

We offer our own web hosting clients an automated service, to automatically backup files and databases to their backup and storage space, and to prune the older backups behind the scenes leaving however many old copies they want. If you have hosting with another provider, we'd gladly help you migrate to our services and automate this for you. Alternatively, we can help you set up some of these steps from your current provider.
