What is site back up, why should you back it up regularly?
Something you should do all the time is backing up your website, especially if you are the type that uses the online interface of your store or blog to make changes. Even though the web hosting companies says they backup the sites on their servers, their last backup could have been before your last edit. If the server crashes for some reason or your site gets hacked, your edits will be gone if the web hosting company restores what they had backed up. Imagine loosing a whole day’s work, just because you didn’t take a few minutes to backup the site.
