Hosting provider’s backup vs CodeGuard cloud backup?
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 (or they keep the backup for disaster recovery purposes). CodeGuard follows a versioning system and allows you to restore a backup of an earlier date as well.
