Anyone have recommendations on host that allows storage of backups?

Hi there everyone,

I used cPanel's backup system to create backups and then ftp them to another server. First I used inMotion until I got a letter telling me it was against the ToS. Then I purchased a cheap account through GoDaddy and used them as storage until I was sent a letter by them telling me it was against their ToS.

I'm growing weary of setting these up and blindly crawling through google results to read the ToS of every host I find isn't appealing to me, so I thought I would ask:

Can anyone point me to a host that allows for the storage of backup files? I would be very grateful for any insight you can provide! My servers currently are running without any backups, so level of nervousness is growing :)

thanks,

You shouldn't be using a webhost for hosting backups... that's simply not what they're there for and you want to ensure you're using a solution which has, ideally, redundancy built in.

We've previously used Amazon S3 for many years. With costs spiraling out of control though we recently switched to Backblaze. Setup could not be easier, and the backup tool in WHM has built-in support for this destination. The price difference is night and day compared to S3 too.

We also use RSync as another destination for a different backup tool. Both of these have outstanding support and very appealing pricing.
