Do I really need to back up my site?

Infomedia’s Customer Support Lead, Josh Brown, explains how regularly backing up your website can give you peace of mind. Josh defines what a backup is and shares some circumstances in which having a backup of your site is beneficial, such as accidentally making a major change to your website or something beyond your control, like your website being hacked. He shares the first steps to take if you don’t have a web hosting company and want to back up your site on your own. He also iterates the importance of confirming that a web hosting company does regular backups prior to signing an agreement with them.

If you don’t have a web hosting company and the thought of backing up your site is daunting, Infomedia can help. Email or call 205-823-4440.
