    If you can't do user backups, you should close down your hosting business and go do something else in life, period. Sorry to be a little abrupt, but if you can't be trusted to look after your user data then you shouldn't be running a server. If you think losing this one account is bad, wait till you lose a whole disk and all 800 accounts, which will happen at some point as server disks only have a standard lifetime of a few years at best. People can get very reliant on their webhosts over time. Just my opinion, feel free to ignore me.

    If you can't run cpanel backups, that's understandable as they are very CPU intensive. There are other ways to back up user accounts, even though the cpanel backups are the most complete way of backing them up. For instance, rsync is one possibility that comes to mind. It may be that you have too many accounts on that one server if you can't back it up.

    before I got a server I used several different companies for hosting accounts. I was told every time it was my responsibility to make backups or it was stated in terms and they are not responsible for them if server is crashed etc.... so am I wrong if I say then they were bad hosts cause they don't make backups for clients?

    I wouldn't say you are wrong but If you lost your data and your host did not back it up, do you think you would continue service with them? I bet anyone would be shopping around.

    But ultimately, a host needs to protect themselves. Under the worst case, say a drive totally destroyed and a backup somehow became corrupt, who is responsible for the hours of development work a client paid thousands of dollars for.

    So yes, I believe ultimately in that case, a host should not be reliable provided they did not intentionally harm or dispose of the said data.

    A small host can not afford NOT to backup. I seen many small hosts lose more than half their clients due to a crash and no recovery option.
