Consider a nightmare scenario where you wake up one day and you see that your website host has accidentally deleted your website. If you hadn’t had backup on the web, your entire website along with your business would go down the drain. It is therefore imperative for organizations or individual users to have a solid website backup plan in place so that any unforeseen event or disaster does not bring your online business to a grinding halt.
Some of the important reasons why you should back up your website are as following:
Service providers usually do not make backups available to you
A large number of web hosts do not back up your websites regularly. Of the few that do, most of them simply do so for their own protection and don't make the files available to their customers.
Quick business resumption
Online backup storage of data and information is imperative as an organization will be paralyzed if happens to lose them in an event of some unscheduled interruption or disaster. Having a backup on the web will quickly help you to resume your business operation after a mishap.
The good thing is that you can create a backup of your site quite easily. Account backups can be performed using the cPanel -> Backups functionality for your hosting account.
