Now that you know keeping a backup of your website data is damn important for anyone having a website. Whatever happens in the worst case, you can restore the website very easily.
The best thing that I recommend is having a backup on a cloud server. It minimizes the risk of losing your website due to server hack or server lost from the datacenter. Just in case the server inside the datacenter lose connectivity from the internet, you will lose huge data.
Or say, some hacker hacked the web server. If you had all your website in a single cPanel acccount (as addon domains which is not recommended), all sites are at risk.
Let’s not think negatively and explore some of the best backup plugins for your website or blog.
