We urge you to backup your own site data, however, ConnectNC does do monthly backups of all hosting sites. Should you ever need to have a backup restored, ConnectNC can perform a site recovery for you, for $50.00. Since backups are done monthly, you will lose any edits you have done after the last backup was performed, once the restore is complete. ConnectNC only backs up this data for the purpose of recovering from a catastrophic event, such as hardware failure. Data backups are complete site and database backups.
Email accounts are included in the full backup.
Again, we strongly urge you backup your own site as often as you need to, and to store that data in a safe place. Backing up your web site data and storing it on the server will not help you if the server should crash.
