WordPress Backups

WordPress backups are essential for every website to have in place in case of server error, data corruption or hacking. They might not have happened to you before, but trust us, they happen a lot.

You might have backups provided by your hosting company, which is great, but what if they go out of business, or they have a data centre go offline? You could lose your website and your backup.

A WordPress backup is only really a backup if it is stored in a different location from your website, and preferably by a different company. You don’t want all your eggs in one basket.

How does your backup measure up?

  • Is your website regularly backed up?

  • Is the backup stored in a different location to your website?

  • Are the backups done by another company, not your webhost?

  • Have you tested that the backup works?

You can use a plugin to backup your website, and there are lots of different choices available. Once configured you can set them to automatically backup your website and set restore points.

Remember, you also need to restore your backup to test that it works. There’s nothing worse than restoring a backup to find it’s corrupted or simply doesn’t work. Do you feel like your site is properly backed up?
