HostClear performs weekly backups of all servers and maintains those backups until the following week’s backups. These are not always guaranteed, and if your account is over 20GB, your storage will be excluded from the weekly backup and only backups of your databases will be created.

The HostClear email feature also delivers impeccable reliability, customers will get unmetered email addresses, each with 500MB (10,000 emails) of storage.
