Backing up your site is a necessary part of normal account maintenance. Please read our article entitled Do you Run Backups of your Servers? for more information regarding backups.
At Web Hosting Hub, we offer an automated backup service that you can purchase for $12per year. Backups are taken of all accounts under 10GB that sign up for automated backups every 24-36 hours.
Limitations of Automated Backup Service
Please note that the Backup Service runs incrementally every 24-36 hours. This means that only one backup per account is stored and the backup is overwritten with any changes made every 24-36 hours. Since the automated backup service is intended for disaster recovery purposes, we strongly encourage users to perform and maintain their own local backups.
In the event you need to undo changes or restore a damaged site, you can utilize your local backup if the automated backup does not contain the data you need. If your site is damaged and that damage is not noticed for several days, the automated backup may have already run and your "good" data would already be overwritten with bad data in the backup. As we only have one backup for your account at any given time, we would not be able to restore a backup from a requested certain date and time.
How do I purchase automated backups?
If you would like to have your website backed up automatically but did not request the service when you first signed up, it can be added at any time. You can purchase automated backups from AMP, which will allow them to be turned on for your account. The cost of automated backups is $12per year.

Has your company ever thought about keeping 7 days worth of backups overwriting 7 days back instead of overwriting every day?metro Why would anyone purchase the auto-backup if it overwrites the previous day?
I'm sure it was considered, but this would require a very large amount of storage space to create and keep a weeks worth of backups for every account.
Keep in mind you can create a backup in cPanel at any time. There are also many backup plugins/extensions available for most website design software that allow you to create your own incremental backups.
