Website Backups

You’ve probably heard of the importance of backing up the data on your computer’s hard drive. It helps prevent you from losing any files in the event of computer failure or accidental file deletion. Backing up your website follows the same principle. When you run regular backups of your website, you can ensure that your data is safe and ready to restore should anything happen.

Why Are Backups Important?

There are a few reasons why you should back up your website:
  • Website Hackers

    Unfortunately, website hackers have become a very common thing on the web. While some hackers aim to steal credit card numbers or other sensitive information, others might hack websites just for the sake of causing trouble. Since your website is available on the web, it’s susceptible to compromise. Backups will allow you to revert your site to its unaltered, unhacked state.

  • Server Failure

    Just like your home computer, web servers can suffer from hardware failure. Though it’s highly unlikely that this will happen, having a backup ensures you don’t lose your important data if your server crashes. It’s best to keep a copy of the backup in multiple places, too.

  • Malware and Viruses

    Viruses, Trojan horses, worms, and other malware can make their way to your website, even through normally safe third parties. You can accidentally download them with a theme or a plugin, or they can slip through flaws in your server’s firewall. Having a backup means you’ll be prepared if anything starts acting strange.

  • Human Error

    People make mistakes. It’s possible that an employee or contractor might press the wrong button or accidentally delete necessary files. When you back up your files, you have less of a chance of human errors interfering with your operations.

  • Bad Updates

    Regularly updating WordPress and your plugins is important. This helps to increase your site’s security and improve features – but sometimes things don’t always go as planned. This is why WordPress tells you to perform a backup before running any updates.

Websites have a lot of components, including themes, plugins, software, and other back-end programs. These all keep things running. A backup is good to have in case one of these components fails.
