The reason are endless…databases fail, websites get hacked, your website hosts deleted all your files by accident.
I have seen it all but fortunately there is an easy fix.
Backup your files regularly, at least once a week!
- Backups of both your website files AND your database should be done regularly and stored off site
- It is not your website host’s responsibility to backup your website files unless you are paying for this service.
- Test your backup system and see if you can actually restore everything in less than 1 hour
- If you store your back files on your server and your server fails….not good. Download a copy and keep it in a safe place.
Backup your files regularly and test them to make sure they are working. Happyshack Media offers website maintenance solutions for small to medium sized businesses. We can properly backup your files daily and be ready should disaster strike.
