Backing up of your website is similar to how you might save an important document to your Google Drive or Dropbox and to your desktop. It’s always wise to save important items more than once and in more than one place, or “medium” (like an external hard drive, thumb drive, the “cloud”, on your computer, and so forth.) Your website is no exception.

Having a plan in place to back-up your site is absolutely critical for anyone and everyone who has a website – from the least-techie beginners to full-stack lead developers.
