Making regular backups of their website is something everyone knows they should be doing. But are you actually doing it? I’m guessing probably not.
Bad things can strike your site (or sites) at any time. When that happens, it can take up lots of time restoring them to their former state. Or worse case, you could even risk losing your entire site completely.
The reason why I think most people don’t make backups is that it often feels like it is too much of a hassle. I know I’m like that myself. Especially since I own several sites, spanning across multiple web hosting accounts.
While I have been a loyal BackupBuddy user for years, I was only using it for performing sporadic manual backups, like when I wanted to move a site over to a different web host. So I would often have backups that were years old. Unfortunately, that turned out to be a big mistake.
