Yes. Backups are included in all plans. We backup in 2 ways: continuously and periodically.
First, let’s cover periodic backups because that’s how most people think of backing up data. We automatically backup all WordPress-related data to the cloud two times per day and preserve those backups for 6 months. That includes all files and databases.
Periodic backups are stored on Backblaze. After 6 months, backups are permanently deleted.
Second, we continuously backup everything. wpPERFORM uses multiple web and database servers, and we’ve configured our servers to automatically synchronize with each other throughout the day. In the event of a server failure, the data on that server would be replaced and restored from another live server, not from a backup stored in the cloud. That makes the restore process very fast.
Our backup methods offer huge improvements over those available on shared hosting environments. You can’t do continuous backups in a shared hosting environment unless your host offers it as a premium service. If you backup periodically on a once per month interval and your server crashes, your restore point will cause you to lose any work in that month. For those who depend on their WordPress-powered sites, that could be catastrophic.
The combination of both continuous and periodic backups insures comprehensive data production.
