Does anyone know if hosting companies offer guarantees that they automatically back up your data? If you know yours doesn't, how often do you take a manual backup of your data on your website? Those who have paid hosting, have you ever had to use a copy due to a loss in data? This isn't something that worries me to this day as I'm with TapaTalk (A free forum host which deals with backups and maintenance.

A lot of hosting companies won't automatically back it up but you can always opt in for auto backups.
Then there are a lot of other companies that will require a payment for backups, depending on the plan that you purchased.
I would just back it up on my own. I hate having to rely on anyone else to do what I need done.

I think Godaddy and some hosting companies charge a monthly fee for backups, in my opinion its worth it since they provide customer support if there is any issue.

The software installer on my hosting service takes daily backups for my site but I really should be going for more frequent backups. Plus, I believe they are stored with the web hosting service so I should probably start to download them locally or have them stored somewhere else because it's not the most reliable way to have backups.
