We ALWAYS recommend our users backup their website on a regular basis. For WordPress users our go-to recommendation is JetPack. For an ridiculously affordable annual fee you get daily backups of your WordPress site. You also get point-in-time restore capabilities.
What that means is you can roll back to any backup point, which happens multiple times per day, such as the version of your site before you blindly clicked the “Update Anything And Everything On WordPress” without reading a single update notification (who has time for THAT?!).
Before you have a need for the service you should get on board. Install and activate JetPack on your site and you can quickly recover from your hasty upgrade hangover. Along the way you may even learn how easy it is to migrate your WordPress site to another provider or to a new staging site where you can actually TEST your updates before doing it on a live website. We know, that’s just crazy talk but we can dream can’t we?
And , yes, we are now officially a WordPress affiliate so clicking the links above may earn us enough money to buy a couple of beers. Whether or not you choose to use our affiliate links our recommendation is unwavering; ALWAYS have a recent site backup. Our recommendation has always been JetPack but you can choose any service you like; there are plenty of good services out there to not be using one.
