Virtual Server Backups
Please review our answers to some of the most common questions about our Virtual Server Backup Programme. If you are interested in applying server backups to an existing server or would like to include one on a new purchase, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 020 3697 5537 Monday through Friday between 8am - 6pm GMT.
What VPS backup system does Tagadab use?
At Tagadab, we use a fully automated image based backup facility which copies and safely stores an entire image of your virtual server for you to use should you so need. You can request that this be set up at the point of installation or enable it from your Tagadab control panel.
With our VPS backup system you are able to take three image backups at any time - a daily, a weekly and a snapshot - and you can easily schedule and re-schedule these backups yourself from within your Tagadab control panel.
What happens when I need to restore my virtual server?
You can restore your virtual server backups at any time from within your Tagadab control panel. With Tagadab the restore process is simple and convenient - the relevant backup will be named (by you) and so you just need to select the required backup and select 'restore'. The backed-up image will replace whatever data is held on your server completely, so you don’t need to worry about losing your data.
How much does it cost?*
When you choose to backup your virtual server with Tagadab, there's no set up fee and you will be charged a fixed amount based on the VPS's disk size:
SVS1000 = £7.00 per month
SVS2000 = £14.00 per month
SVS3000 = £20.00 per month
SVS4000 = £25.00 per month
Applying backups now
Simply log into your Tagadab control panel, navigate to your virtual server's summary page and select the backup option. If you would like to install it on a new virtual server, just select the option upon signup; however you can always install it later if required.
