    My host provides it. They take backups on a daily basis, free of charge.
    Is your site a large site, or a small information site?

    My server provider offers free remote nightly backups, however it is a hassle to obtain them. That's why my future host and most hosts today only offer those backups in the event of a large-scale data loss and you need to rely on your own backups.

    That's a good option for very small sites, the problem is when you need to backup 50 Gb+ of data, just like I do... (and many many others)

    Having a good backup plan (offsite preferable) is definitely the way to go if you're serious about this business.

    I provide my own off site backups. I'll backup the databases to my sites and download them to my home computer on a regular basis.

    And a few times a year I will download the entire html folder for each site to my computer.

    I try to keep a backup on my home computer and on a portable passport drive.

    I'm actually confused upon what to use for backups. I did find something called r1soft, but not sure how effective it would be when the two servers are far apart (ex Denver to Chicago)

    Most folks I know recommend rsync.net.
