Tech Tips – Backing Up Your WordPress Website

In today’s episode we talk about the importance of backing up your WordPress website.

A regular backup is a critical part of maintaining a WordPress website and can save you from a lot of stress in the event your site breaks or you accidentally delete something a backup will give you the ability to return the site to a previous state while you investigate the cause.

If your website gets hacked, it gives you the option to quickly recover the site before search engines blacklist you, obviously the hack will need to be investigated but in the short term it can get you back up and running.
