Automatic Daily Backups
There are a lot of ways you can backup a website. And there are just as many right ways as there are wrong ways to do it.
We highly recommend that your Web Care Plan includes automated DAILY backups that run at the server level—along with monthly OFFSITE backups.
While plugins that run backups can be helpful, they can be a pain to restore. They aren’t fully reliable, and in some cases, they aren’t really backing up your entire site—yikes! Plus you must remember to manually run your backups, then download them. Sure, use them, but not as your primary backup source.
Your best option for a reliable server backup is to use optimized hosting (see below for more details). A really good web host will take daily backups, keep them for 30+ days, and give you control to restore them as needed.
