Restoring a BackupWritten by Brad Markle
InMotion Hosting does perform some backups. Backups are ran every 24 to 36 hours and overwrite the previous backup. Not all accounts are backed up so let's review what accounts are backed up:
- Personal/Cheap Hosting Plans under 10GB
- Business Class Hosting Plans under 10GB (this excludes the LD servers)
- VPS accounts under 10GB
Because backups run every 24 to 36 hours and overwrite the previous one, if you want a backup from a week ago restored, it is not likely we will have a backup. If you would like to find out if we have a backup available to restore please contact our technical support department for further assistance.
Once you have determined there is a backup that you would like to have restored, you will need to make a request to our support department. Please feel free to email support: email@example.com and to request a restoration of data.

While we do offer data backups as a precaution against lost data, our main goal is to ensure that backup won't be needed because of faulty hardware. Read more about how we try create a reliable VPS solution for our customers.
