Information about Managed VPS Backups

Host4Geeks offers free weekly backups on all our Managed VPS services. We backup our Managed VPS nodes on a weekly basis and store 4 retention points, that is at any given point we are usually able to restore your VPS from the past 4 weeks. Our backups do not count against your disk space usage. Our backups exclude all cPanel backup that may exist on your VPS.

Full VPS Restore

We can restore your entire VPS from any of the available 4 retention points.

  • To have your full VPS restored open a ticket requesting so. We will provide you with a list of available restore points for you to choose from.
  • During a full VPS restoration, your VPS will be offline.
  • All your existing accounts, files, folders, settings, etc will be restored as a part of the full account restoration and all existing data will be overwritten.
  • The time taken to perform a full VPS restoration depends on the amount of data and the size of your VPS as such we may not be able to provide you with an ETA to the full restoration.

Partial VPS Restore / Restore Individual Files or Folders

We can restore specific files or folders from any of the available retention points for a fee of $10 per incident, regardless of the number of files or folders that are to be restored.

  • MySQL databases using the InnoDB storage engine cannot be restored unless ALL databases are restored. MyISAM databases can be restored individually.
  • cPanel accounts that have been deleted cannot be restored.
  • We can, however, restore information which may have been deleted from an account such as emails or files. If an email account itself was deleted though, this account would need to be recreated via cPanel and we could then put the email files back in it. If you have any questions about this please ask us via a support ticket.
  • Multiple files/directories can be restored with a single restore attempt, we will just need a list of these files/directories. Subsequent requests will be treated as new requests.

Our backups cannot be made available for download. We do offer paid daily backup service for all our Managed VPS plans for a small fee of $10 per VPS regardless of the size of the data that is to be backed up. Please find more information about it here.
