The Importance of Backups
Website and database backups are an essential part of maintaining a secure and stable online presence. Backing up your website and database ensures that you can quickly and easily restore your site in the event of a disaster, such as a server failure, hacking, or human error.
A common mistake customers make is to setup a Backup plugin or other solution, that takes a backup of the website or database and stores it within the shared hosting service. Should there be any loss of data, this usually means your backup is gone too. Storing backups in the same location as the original files is not really a backup.
Let’s look at the importance of regularly backing up your website and database and the consequences of neglecting to do so.
The Importance of Backing Up Your Website
Your website is the face of your online presence and is often the first point of contact for your customers. It’s crucial to ensure that your website is always up and running and that your visitors have a positive experience. Unfortunately, things can go wrong, and your website can experience technical difficulties, such as server failures, or it can be hacked, resulting in the loss of critical data. A common issue we see here in E-Live, is a failure due to a WordPress Plugin update, that causes some incompatibility, so a backup allows you to quickly revert to a previous version.
Regularly backing up your website ensures that you can quickly and easily restore your site in the event of a disaster. Backups allow you to restore your website to a previous version, minimising the impact of the disaster on your business and your customers. Backups also provide peace of mind, knowing that you can quickly restore your site and get back to business as usual.
The Importance of Backing Up Your Database
Your website’s database is where all of your critical data is stored, including customer information, order details, and product information. Losing this data can have a significant impact on your business, and it can be difficult, if not impossible, to recover.
Regularly backing up your database ensures that you can quickly and easily restore your data in the event of a disaster. Backups allow you to restore your database to a previous version, minimising the disruption to your business.
