Does Servebolt backup my sites?

Servebolt runs daily and nightly disaster recovery backups of all files and databases.

It will save you a lot of time. Reach out to Support if you need any help regarding backing up your site, or read about how you can backup your WordPress site.

No, the disaster recovery backups are kept on separate storage space provided free of charge by Servebolt.

Does my plan include Development, Testing & Staging environments?

Our plans includes at minimum 5 production environments, and an unlimited amount of development, testing and staging environments. The only physical limit is the disk space on your plan. Every dev/test/stage environment will be provided with a custom URL with SSL.
