Let’s talk about websites. No, we’re not talking about flashy designs, catchy content on homepages, or intricate site functionalities.

In life, we’re constantly reminded of the value of insurance — health insurance, car insurance, home insurance — but how often do we think about insurance for digital assets like websites? Not having insurance or a contingency plan is especially shocking when you consider that businesses, connections, and reputations depend so much on these online tools.
A mistaken line of code, a software glitch, or an unforeseen cyberattack can bring operations and sales to a standstill.
But what if there were something even better than insurance? What if, instead of simply being compensated for the loss, you could actually repair the damage instantaneously?
That’s the purpose that backups serve. And the right WordPress backup solution can restore your online presence in minutes, even saving ecommerce sales that occurred between the time you restore and the time that the backup was taken (e.g. in the case of a malware injection).
Read on to learn about your digital safety net and how to find and implement the right solution for your site.
