It’s not easy, if at all possible, to restore such things from most backups. Well, unless you have Server Rewind. It’s exclusively available on A2 Hosting. And it’s free. Yep, free.
Let me tell you why I love this feature and how I use it for my sites and those of my clients.
Many reputable hosts make backups of your site. But, it’s usually an all-or-nothing restore process.
What’s different about Server Rewind is that you can restore just the part you need. That may be:
- A single file
- Your entire MySQL database
- Your entire site
- Your entire account, including emails
You can get to Server Rewind directly from your cPanel. So you won’t even need to call the Guru Crew to do it for you, although you can, if you like. They’re always eager to help.
To find your backup, log in to your A2 cPanel and scroll down to the Files section. Click the icon for Server Rewind.
Your Total Backup Plan
Server Rewind is just one more tool in your entire backup plan. It does not take the place of your own backups stored offsite. Any backup that is still on your hosting is vulnerable, no matter if it’s done by your host or a plugin. You need to have a backup file stored offsite.
My recommendation is BackupBuddy and store on AS3. For more, read my free report on 14 backup and storage solutions.
What Does it Cost?
Server Rewind is 100% free on shared hosting and reseller accounts. A2 dedicated servers have a different backup system provided by A2.
Ready to Move
I LOVE the super speed I’m getting with the solid state drives (SSD). Makes page load for the viewer fast, and has spoiled me rotten with working on the admin side. So much so, that it’s actually painful to have to wait for an admin page to come up when I’m working on a client site. You’ll love all that speed, and perks like Server Rewind too.
