If you're wondering why intoHOST doesn't offer its hosting space as a data storage facility, you're not alone! Let's break it down in simple terms and show you some great alternatives.

intoHOST's hosting space is tailor-made for the specific purpose of web hosting. Like you wouldn't use a hammer to do a screwdriver's job, our servers are not designed to store files. Our aim to host websites and keep them running smoothly, ensuring that your site is always available to visitors.

Using our hosting space for data storage not only jeopardizes the effectiveness of our servers but may also violate our terms of service. However, we're here to help you find the best solutions for your data storage needs.

Luckily, there are many services out there specifically designed for data storage. Popular platforms include Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft Drive. These services provide dedicated space for your files and offer features like file sharing, synchronization across multiple devices, and robust security protocols.

While you shouldn't use intoHOST's hosting space as a data storage facility, you can use it for website backup. We've got a host of guides to help you do just that, regardless of your platform.

If you're using cPanel for your hosting, follow our step-by-step guide on how to take a backup of your website with cPanel.

We have a detailed guide on creating backups with Plesk for those using the Plesk panel.

If you need to back up your MySQL databases, check out our tutorial on how to take MySQL backups using Plesk.

Moreover, at intoHOST, we offer additional security by taking courtesy backups using JetBackups. Here's how to use JetBackups.

For those who can't use the cPanel backup option, we've covered you with our guide on how to backup your files without using the cPanel backup option.

Finally, while we always aim to provide reliable backups, we strongly advocate having your local backups. Learn about the importance of local backups in our comprehensive guide.

Remember, while our hosting space isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for every need, we're dedicated to helping you find the best tools for the job. Let us know if you need further assistance – we're here to help!
