Everyone knows how important it is to keep important documents in a safe place. Since your site is important, it makes sense to also place a copy of it in a secure place. I’ve heard far too many stories of people not keeping backups and ending up with a lost site, and I don’t want that to happen to anybody here.

IsMyWebsite will do its best to keep your data safe, but due to the unpredictability of the Internet and the technology that runs it, we can’t guarantee that an accident won’t happen. That’s why you need to keep backups. Not only does it give you peace of mind, but it also keeps your data safe.

I’ve made a tutorial that will walk you through backing up your home directory (all your site’s files) and databases. Please use it: http://ismywebsite.com/my/help/backup

If you need any further help with backing up, I’ll be glad to walk you through it. Just send me a message.
