Backups are inevitable part of websites/servers. If you are owner of a website/server, you should find some space to store the backup of your product. Otherwise the impact will be high if the server ran into any issues. Now, website administrators are given more priority to automate backups rather than manual backups. With cPanel there is a place to configure your backups. There are many factors that should be taken into account, before going to automatic backups. These will include how often the backups should be taken, what should be backed up, and where should be the backups stored.
