How build a site backup service?

  • # October 8, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    I have the intention to hire two or more hosting services. How I implement this two examples?

    • Example A: One service is just s backup of another service, used in case of no comunication with productive server.
    • Example B: Both servers offer their services in parallels, but apply the option of backup between them, like previous example.

    It should consider the existence of a database.

    It should consider the use of an e-commerce service for payment methods, such as that offered by Paypal.

    Well my question is simple. How implement this? Exist any service or hosting who offer something like? Opt for two different services providers.

    How would you get your URL on two different hosts? I’ve never heard of such a thing.

    Plus, duplicate content on multiple domains will cause red flags with Google…or so I’ve read.

    most semi-decent hosting providers already distribute your website across two (or more) physical machines. MediaTemple (which, IIRC, hosts css-tricks) is an example of such a provider.

    Doing this with two different providers is impractical, and I’m not sure what benefit you would expect from it.

    What made you conclude that you needed two completely separate hosts? Typically a backup solution is a script just backs up the files and database and stores them on a dev subdomain and then you’d set your htaccess to prevent anyone from viewing it.

    To Traq’s point – most good hosts offer this in the control panel of the host.

    Well, I try to provide a solution for a e-commerce website.

    But, on Easter Island, where you need the service is very unstable electricity, but you must have service for local communication as to access the Internet use satellite communications.

    However services must be viewed from Europe or the U.S.

    Clearly I have local backup service is one thing, I need backup the service, not the applications. That is service availability.

    Effectively use backup-manager script to backup my servers.
