While most businesses understand the importance of backing up their server and files, many forget to back up their website!

Most sites are hosted on a third-party platform like Amazon or WordPress. However, these hosts have limits on what they back up, and the terms and conditions you agreed to will most likely waive their responsibility to preserve and back up your files and data.

Therefore, if you’re posting a lot of new content, you should be backing up your site weekly if not daily. Hackers can (and do!) corrupt websites all the time. If you don’t want to have the cost of a down website and the cost of rebuilding it, back up your website!

Side tip: Does your business depend on your website being online? Do you have a system checking it every couple of minutes to make sure it’s up, online and available? We can help you make this happen; just let me know by responding to this e-mail.
