If your website is not a WordPress site and is hosted on HelpingHost.com’s servers, use the SFTP option. Also, you can use FTP.
In case of other hosting providers, you can choose either the FTP or SFTP option, based on your service provider’s settings.
HelpingHost.com has so called onsite backups available to you that you can also restore yourself. However without some knowledge about the software you are using, for example WordPress, Joomla, Magento and so on, you will likely need a hand from HelpingHost.com which might not be instant.
CodeGuard provides safe, offsite (meaning in a different location) backup that is 100% independent from HelpingHost.com.
It allows a simple one Click restore of your WordPress for example at any time of the day or night.
Moreover, HelpingHost.com will only provide you with a limited number of backups from the past. CodeGuard follows a versioning system and allows you to restore a backup of any earlier date as well. (depending of course what you set as the retention cycle in your CodeGuard dashboard).
CodeGuard only supports MySQL type databases.
All customer backup data is encrypted using AES-256 bit keys.
By default, 90 days of backups are stored. You can choose to retain all backups, from the Backup Retention Settings section in the ACCOUNT SETTINGS view.
Yes, you can upgrade or downgrade your existing Codeguard package at anytime. In order to downgrade your plan, make sure your resources ( disk space, websites) are within the limits of the lower plans.
