Just Host Account Backup Policy


What is the Just Host backup policy? What kinds of backups are available?


Just Host Policy on Account Backups

Just Host does not offer redundant or mirrored backups. Just Host will run courtesy backups at our discretion. Any backups that Just Host runs are in addition to our Terms of Service and are not guaranteed. Customers are encouraged to run periodic backups through the provided cPanel. Just Host recommends that you store such backups off site on your local system. Backups are kept for a maximum of 30 days. Backups older than 30 days will be overwritten with a newer backup, and it is the customer's responsibility to download a backup before it is overwritten if the customer wishes to keep that copy of their data.

You may create your own copies using SSH/Shell Access. Backups may be permanently deleted if payment fails on your account and the account is expired. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to make and keep copies of their data, and Just Host will not attempt to keep data (including backups) of accounts that have been expired or deleted.
