Backups are important

Backups are an essential part of maintaining a website. It is your responsibility to create backups of your site, so if it gets lost, you can restore and get it back up quickly. A backup is a copy of your website files. You can keep that on your server or download it to your computer. There are many reasons why you can lose your website. And when this happens, you don’t need to stress out. Most hosting companies offer backup systems. You can do this using plugins or other programs available in your hosting account. The problem with using plugins is that they can come with vulnerabilities that put your WordPress blog at risk.

Backups and your website files can be stored on the same server. But, what if a hacker can get into your account? You are at risk of losing both the site and backups. There is no hope when they decide to delete the backups. A backup can also get lost if the server that hosts it is damaged or malfunctioned. There are many other cases where you can lose your backups. Many hosting providers provide backup services, meaning that you don’t need to do it manually. They will do it for your daily or weekly depending on the hosting package.

You can also buy it as an extra feature. While this is a good idea, you still need to pay attention to the backup period. You should keep an eye on the process yourself, so that you can rest assured that it goes as expected. There is a variety of backup systems available. They vary from one company to another. But as a user, you must have knowledge of how they work. Check on the backups regularly to ensure that they work fine, not corrupted. Even with a reliable backup system, unexpected accidents can still happen. To find out if your backup system is doing great, do a restore test.

Can we lose an entire site?

Well, if the backups are gone, then the site is gone, too. It is hard to recover a website when the owner fails to keep the backups. They can disappear for various reasons.

Server problems. The quality a server highly affects the sites it hosts. For a shared server, multiple users can host their sites at the same time. Those websites affect each other for using the same resources. If one crashes from receiving a high amount of traffic, others’ performance will slow down as well. With that in mind, deciding on a server where you will host your site is important. There is no way back when you lose website and its backups due to a server failure.

Single backup location. There is no point of uploading backups to the same server as the website if you’re uncertain about its security. If someone gains unauthorized access to your account, he can do damage to everything. Or if a fire burns down the building that houses the server, the data can get lost, too. Your best bet is to store backups on multiple servers.

Malicious intent. It is a serious problem when someone is intent on hacking your site and stealing data for malicious purposes. As a webmaster, you can still provide a top level of protection to prevent intruders from coming. Well, they will always come, but with top-notch security measures, they will not break in easily.
