Most reliable backup.

CodeGuard offers the most reliable backup on the market with 99.999999999% reliability. Codeguard achieves this by replicating your data in secure locations across the world and backing up your site automatically, everyday.

We can help you fix the problems.

Should anything go wrong, CodeGuard is there to help. Deleted files are now recoverable, overwritten files are now obtainable, and if your site is hacked, the malware is easily removable. All of this with nothing to install.

After selecting which backup version you want restored CodeGuard gives you a few options to choose from. You can perform a manual restore by requesting a zipped version of your backup, or perform a one-click automatic restore and let it do the heavy-lifting. You can also restore individual files as needed.

We stay ahead of the curve.

Ever thought about how you'd find out about your site getting hacked? If your site is hacked, it could be days or weeks before you even know about it. CodeGuard believes that you should be the first to know, and so our monitoring system diligently checks your site for changes everyday.

When CodeGuard takes the daily backup, it compares what is on your website with the last version of your website stored in our system.

We call this a differential backup, which is unique to CodeGuard and much more efficient at storing your data than other services. If any changes are found, CodeGuard emails you with the details!

Frequently Asked Questions

How reliable is CodeGuard?

FAQ Answer
CodeGuard's systems perform at 99.9% levels, which means that roughly 1 out of 1,000 websites encounters an issue on a daily basis. Hosting providers perform maintenance on servers, customers change FTP login credentials, and IP whitelisting settings for database connections can change, based upon hosting provider server admin activity. These are common behaviors and not cause for concern, as CodeGuard determines the root cause for the lack of connectivity, and emails the customer so they can remediate.

How secure is CodeGuard?

FAQ Answer
CodeGuard relies upon industry best practices to protect customers' data. All backups and passwords are encrypted, secure connections (SFTP/SSH/SSL) are utilized if possible, and annual vulnerability testing is conducted by an independent agency. To-date, there has not been a data breach or successful hack or attack upon CodeGuard.

Where are the backups stored?

FAQ Answer
Backups are stored on Amazon Web Services Simple Storage System, known as S3. S3 boasts object durability levels of 99.999999999%, achieved by storing redundant copies of data across multiple geographies and facilities. S3 is not the cheapest alternative for data storage, but it is one of the most reliable.

Are the backups encrypted?

FAQ Answer
Our data stored on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is stored utilizing Server Side Encryption (SSE). AWS handles key management and key protection for us, with one of the strongest block ciphers available, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256).

How are passwords stored?

FAQ Answer
Two different types of passwords are stored on our system – customer account passwords to log into CodeGuard, and passwords for customer server credentials (FTP/SFTP, MySQL). The customer account passwords are stored with a one-way salted hash. At rest, these passwords reside in Amazon's Relational Database Service (RDS). Customer server credential passwords are stored in RDS with RSA 2048-bit key encryption.

How are the features different between the plans?

FAQ Answer
All plans allow for daily automatic backups, monitoring and restores without limitation. The only difference between the two plans is the amount of disk space offered.
