Website Backup, Database Backup, What Is the Difference?

Many organizations establish a website and either develop it in-house or with the assistance of third-party marketing experts. When you focus on keeping tabs on operations at your business, you often don’t have much time to pay attention to the daily issues that can occur with a website or how often the website is updated or backed up. You know that a business cannot survive if it doesn’t make routine backups of all of its critical files. With that in mind, you may be wondering what the difference is between backing up a website and backing up the database.

Website Backup

Your organization’s website is constructed using a variety of files. For example, there is the text that goes into each page (from the landing page to your About Us page to the words that make up your contact form). The site will typically have images as well as videos and audio files.

When you update the site, such as to add a new picture and a caption, you need to back it up so you can restore the site immediately in case of a disaster. You also need these files in case you decide to move your website from one hosting company’s servers to another’s.

Database Backup

A wide variety of information can be stored in the database that supports your organization’s website. If you have a blog, each blog post and any comments will be stored in the database. When people sign up at your site (such as to register with you or as a first step before submitting an inquiry), their user names and contact information go into the database as well.

Any data that you need to present to website visitors live and on the fly will be stored in the database. For example, a financial institution presents updated details about the user’s account in real time. When you log into the site, the database passes information to it safely and securely so you can do tasks such as check on your balances or transfer funds from savings to checking. 

A database could include details on all the inventory for products you sell, with information constantly being updated as circumstances warrant.
