There aren't any backups. When you buy shared hosting, it does not include backups unless you explicitly contract such a service (if available, not everyone offers that) and pay for it. I wish this article was a bit more clear about that industry fact that I would have thought rather obvious but clearly a lot of people seem to think that because they're buying space on a disk someone else is going to take responsibility for what they put in it.
