What is Site Backup

Anything can happen online. One day your website runs smoothly, the next it crashes unpredictably, putting your business at risk. When this happens, you have to be in control.

One essential requirement for website security is to have regular backups. Backing up means copying and archiving data, in case original copies are corrupted or lost.

You can do this manually, by copying your website files to your local computer using an FTP client. However, this takes time and could be inconvenient to do on a regular basis.

If creating a manual backup is not for you, then let Site Backup do all the hard work for you.
