Outsourcing backups is not something that usually comes to mind when managing a website. Backups are commonly carried out, in-house, by the website developer.

However outsourcing your backups can be a great way to give you peace of mind, another buffer against un-predictable events, and a level of professionalism towards an important part of webhosting data management.

Outsourcing the backup procedure, in simple terms, is the process of allowing a 3rd party to manage the backed up data of your website or any IT based program. They will not edit or update the data in anyway. A backup company’s job is to simply hold onto the data that is given to them.

With data backed up regularly and in a separate location to your IT base of operations a host of advantages are opened up. For one, the data is safe from any adverse natural disasters or theft of the IT hardware, as it is in a different location.
