Where would we be without backups? Constantly on the edges of our seats? Going slowly round the bend? Sounds about right. Knowing our websites are regularly backed up and easy to retrieve gives us all the peace of mind we need to get on with the job – and sleep at night.


Onsite backups are free on the Nimbus Hosting platform.

So it’s good to know, if you’re on our platform, you’re already getting free daily backups as part of your package. We do them in the wee small hours (between 1 and 3am) and keep them for 14 days.


To keep your backups super safe, they’re stored on a different server in our secure data centre. Need to restore your website to an earlier version? No problem. You can restore your site through our platform using this simple guide.


Upgrade to offsite backups in seconds.

Onsite backups are quick, easy and secure. But we know some of you need more. Lots of companies now need offsite backups to tick those compliance and business-continuity boxes – so we’re making it even easier to get them set up, straight from your dashboard.


You can now upgrade to offsite backups in a couple of quick clicks. When you do, we’ll run them daily, instead of your onsite ones. Again, they’ll happen while you’re tucked up in bed, and they’ll be kept for a reassuring 30 days. 


The difference is, they’ll be stored at our second secure data centre, so in the unlikely event of a major issue at our main data centre, your websites will still be backed up, safe and sound, at a separate location. It’s next-level peace of mind, from only £5 a month.
