Introducing ICDSoft's New Service - Extended Backups

Here at ICDSoft we have always believed that backups are an essential part of the hosting package. This is why we provide automatic daily backups for all hosting plans at no extra cost. We make these backups twice a day, and we keep them for 7 days for shared hosting accounts, and for 15 days for VPS plans.

We have received many requests for extended backups from customers. As part of our recent hardware upgrades, we fully upgraded our storage, backup, and network systems, and we are now ready to offer this service.

So, we are happy to introduce our new service called Extended Backups. It is an upgrade option which provides 12 months of extra backups for a hosting account. Extended backups start accumulating after purchasing the upgrade. With the Extended Backups service, all account data gets backed up on the 1st and 15th day of each month, and each backup is kept for 12 months on a separate server.

Clients can easily purchase the Extended Backups upgrade via the Upgrades section available in the management page for each hosting account in the ICDSoft Account Panel.

No matter whether you have a shared hosting account, a powerful single-site VPS plan, or a multi-functional SmartVPS where you can host multiple hosting accounts on a single VPS, our Extended Backups service has you covered. All data gets backed up on a separate machine, and you can easily restore from it at any time via the Restore section in the hosting Control Panel. What's more, if you purchase an "Extended Backups" upgrade for our newest VPS plans (SmartVPS and SmartVPS Pro), it will automatically apply to each individual account hosted on such a plan.

For the best possible account protection, clients can combine the Extended Backups upgrade with our Advanced Security service that can also be ordered at the Upgrades section.
