Limitations to Size and Number of Daily Data Backups
We backup your WordPress website on a daily basis for customers. We only backup your WordPress Files, WordPress directories, and the WordPress Database. We do not backup files or directories that are not part of the WordPress installation. We store the number of backup files allowed according to your plan. The total space consumed by your website’s WordPress files and database file must be less than the maximum allowed, which is 1 GB. If your website’s backup exceeds the amount allowed by your plan, then you must upgrade to a higher plan. A typical WordPress business Website is less than 1 GB. If your website is bigger than 1GB, which is the maximum allowed by our plans, we will be glad to accommodate your business needs by charging you an additional fee for each extra 1 GB of data. We will inform you of that fee at the time that you exceed the 1 GB and you will not be charged for the first backup exceeding the 1 GB.
Limitations to Restoration of Data and Copies of Data
For all support plans, only 1 restore per month is free of charge. Any other required backup restores, will require a small fee (£19). You can request to restore your website from any of the existing backups created by our Services during the last 30 days as allowed by your plan. It is possible that on a given day a backup fails.. We can only perform a FULL restore of all the WordPress files and the database file from a specific backup file. We can not restore individual files or partial data. To request a restore of your website, you must contact us and we will provide you with further instructions. For the security of your data, we do not specify on our Site the entire procedure to request a restore of your website. We do not provide any guarantee on how long it will take us to restore your WordPress files and database from a backup but we try to start your restoration within on average 2 hours of receiving your authorised request. You can make additional requests for a restore at a cost of £19 per request. Depending on the size of your files and database, it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 6 hours for the restoration process to complete. You can request a free copy of your backup file (limited to 1 free request per month). You can make additional requests for a backup file at a cost of £19 per request. To request a copy of your backup file, just contact us and we will provide you with further instructions on how to download your backup file.
Limitations to Website Updates
By subscribing to one of our plans, you authorise us to update all of the WordPress core files, the active theme, and all of the active plugins as needed. We update all WordPress plugins and themes (when a new release is available) that allow automatic updates. By automatic updates, we mean all themes and plugins that can be updated from within the WordPress Dashboard. We will not update any themes or plugins that require a file upload. We perform all updates after confirming that your website was successfully backed up. We will only update plugins and themes that are compatible with the version of WordPress that you have installed. We will only update the WordPress core files if all your plugins are compatible with the latest version of WordPress. If after performing any update, your website is not working as it should, we will restore your website for free to how it was before the update. When a new release of a plugin or theme is available, it can take us up to 72 hours to perform the updates because we first need to verify that the updates are compatible with your current WordPress version. We will update inactive themes and plugins for security reasons but we highly recommend that you delete all inactive themes and plugins. We will never delete a plugin or theme without your prior written consent. It is your sole responsibility to notify us via email if you notice that your website is not working properly after any updates are performed and ask us to restore your website to the latest backup version. If we have to restore your website, we can not recover any content, posts, pages, or any changes that occurred between the time the backup was created and the time the website was restored.
