Frequently Asked Questions About CodeGuard Website Backup

What is CodeGuard?

CodeGuard is a fully automated website backup service that gives you complete protection against data loss and malware.

Why do I need CodeGuard?

CodeGuard provides an independent offsite backup solution for your website along with daily monitoring to ensure your website is online and malware free.

How does it work?

CodeGuard takes daily automated snapshots of your website. Using these snapshots, you can restore your entire site or a specific file to an earlier version at any time.

What if I run out of storage?

Switching plans is easy! You can upgrade and increase your disk storage allowance in just a few simple clicks via our client area.

Where are backups stored?

Backups are stored on Amazon Web Services Simple Storage System which provides market leading resiliance and redundancy for your backups.

Are the backups encrypted?

Yes, backups are stored encrypted using the AES-256 Encryption Standard.

Do you backup databases?

Yes, databases can be backed up also. Database backups are supported for MySQL and MSSQL databases.

What is File Change Alert Monitoring?

CodeGuard can monitor and notify you by email when your website changes to alert you to new threats and malware.

What happens if my site gets infected?

With CodeGuard’s daily snapshots, if your website gets attacked, you can restore to a previous uninfected version at any time.

How does CodeGuard connect to my website?

If your website is hosted on our Linux servers, use the SFTP option. Also, you must use the default FTP user that comes with your cPanel account. You cannot connect to CodeGuard using any other FTP user. For Windows servers, use the FTP option. In case of other hosting providers, you can choose either the FTP or SFTP option, based on your service provider’s settings.

Wouldn't the hosting provider's backup suffice?

Hosting companies tend to keep your backups in the same place as your primary files. In case of any eventuality, along with your primary files, your backups too will be affected. CodeGuard provides safe, offsite backup that is 100% independent from your hosting provider. Moreover, hosting companies provide you only the latest backup. CodeGuard follows a versioning system and allows you to restore a backup of an earlier date as well.

After I add a website, how do I change what files are backed up?

After you add a website, any new files or directories that you add to your site will automatically backed up. CodeGuard will only exclude files and directories that you don’t select when adding your website. If you need to change how your website is backed up, you need to delete and re-add your website. However, this should be handled with care as you will lose your backups. This option is only recommended if you have just added your website.

What types of database are supported for backup?

Only MySQL databases are currently supported.

What database user permissions are needed to backup and restore?

The database user that you specify in CodeGuard must have the appropriate permissions granted. It is recommended that the user has the permissions for both backup and restore actions:

Backup

  • Select
  • Show View
  • Show Databases

Restore

  • Select
  • Update
  • Insert
  • Delete
  • Drop
  • Create
  • Alter
  • Index

How does CodeGuard store data? Is it encrypted?

CodeGuard uses Amazon Web Service’s Simple Storage Service (S3) to house website and database backup data. All customer backup data is encrypted using an AES-256 bit key.

What is the privacy policy with regards to data captured by CodeGuard?

How long are the backups stored in the CodeGuard account?

By default, 90 days of backups are stored. You can choose to retain all backups, from the Backup Retention Settings section in the ACCOUNT SETTINGS view. You can navigate to this view through the SETTINGS -> ACCOUNT menu, within your CodeGuard account.

Can I upgrade/downgrade my CodeGuard order?

Yes, you can upgrade or downgrade your existing Codeguard package. In order to downgrade your plan, make sure your resources (disk space, websites) are within the limits of the lower plans.

Can I backup multiple websites?

Yes, you can! Multiple websites can be backed up with CodeGuard.
