HostGator Launches Hosting Backup Service
HostGator, the web hosting provider, announced the launch of a new service. HostGator’s public backup service enables automatic backups for anyone hosting their websites using the cPanel control panel. The backup includes the web site, databases, emails and cPanel settings.
The new service, SiteAutoBackup.com, is open to the general public, and is not limited to HostGator users.
The backup plans buy HostGator start at $1.95 per month for a 1GB account. Additional disk space is available for as low as $1 per additional 1GB.
By default, SiteAutoBackup.com backups run daily, but users can define a custom schedule.
SiteAutoBackup.com backup data is securely stored within servers at its Texas data center space, run by its exclusive data center and network provider The Planet. HostGator has servers in four of The Planet’s Dallas-area data centers, which provide top-of-the-line technology ensuring that servers stay cool, secure, and up at all times. The facilities feature redundant power, HVAC and fire detection systems, and are monitored 24/7 by both HostGator and The Planet’s Network Operation Centers.
