WordPress Site Backups
Keep a secure copy of all your content, data, media, and WordPress settings.
Why do I need a backup?
“Doesn’t my host already keep a copy of my site?” Most likely, yes (if they don’t, we strongly recommend switching to a host that does!).
But your site is important to you, your organization, your brand, or your revenue — you can never be too safe, and having more than one layer of backup is the smart thing to do.
Accidents happen to the best of us:
- Hosting companies experience outages, or can themselves be victims of malicious attacks.
- Accidental errors or rogue employees might delete site files.
- Unauthorized access, hacking, or malware could take down your site.
Having a “spare key” for your site is invaluable. Hopefully, you never need your Jetpack backup — but if something does go wrong, you can rest assured that Jetpack has a complete copy of your site in a secure, off-site, third-party location.
