Automatic Website Backup
With Handy Backup, you can fully automate all site backup actions either for CMS software or for custom-built website server infrastructure. There, you can schedule backup sequences, make partial backup, using time stamps, encrypt saved content and so on.
Web Server Backup
Websites commonly depend on files (scripts, images, HTML, etc.) and databases (MySQL, MS SQL or other). Our website backup service lets you protect the both data types; therefore, in case of a disaster, web server downtime will be reduced to the minimum.
Access Files on FTP, SFTP and FTPS Servers
Our backup software can access FTP data in both directions: to back up files from an FTP server, and to store backups to FTP. Along with database backup, this is a commonly perfect solution for any types of website backup.
If you have a large website with thousands of pages, SQL-based database engines will keep some data (called a dynamic content) or even all website information for you. For web site backup, our backup utility can copy MS SQL, MySQL and other databases backup without stopping usual jobs.
Backing up Your Website
Unlike some website backup software, Handy Backup does not rely of saving browsed website content. Instead, it uses a direct access to web server files, so you can make a complete online website backup without exceptions, and always bring it back to work in case of a disaster.
