If you own anything where information can be visited online like a website or blog, then you need to pay careful attention to website security and the importance of implementing an internet security plan.

As well as implementing an internet security and website recovery plan for your business, you will also want to prevent losing data from mistakes that can cause significant damage or disruption to your business. Having a way to completely restore your site, files or data in extreme situations is something that many people only appreciate once it’s too late.

You may also just want to save time. If your business involves setting up many websites or blogs, having a simple way of duplicating website data from one site to another can be quite convenient.

As the saying goes, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Backing up your WordPress blog, therefore, is imperative. The truth, however, is that left to their own devices, very few people do it, or don’t do it as often as these things should be done.

Let’s face it … getting your website hacked, losing data, and accidentally changing things that disrupt your site is all part of the reality of doing business online. If something this tragic ever happens to you, then you will need a quick and easy way to recover lost information, get back an earlier version of your site, or complete reinstall your site and previous web content.

Fortunately, if you use WordPress, then you can easily create backups of your WP database and website or blog files, clone your site to another location and restore your old site and data.

Backup Creator - Backup, Clone & Protect Your WordPress Websites And BlogsTestimonials

”You saved me 30 minutes just by using it once, as I get paid $50 an hour, this product is definitely worth it.” Martin Capodici, SydneyWebGuy.com

Plugin Tips

Here are some great uses for this plugin:

Real-Time Documentation Of All Your Site Processes.

Instead of spending so much time documenting all the steps required to make a website or blog work “just right”, or creating a website setup manual, you can just set up your website or blog exactly the way you want it, back it up|make an exact copy of site and then restore it on a new location and you’ve now got an exact, “documented” copy of your site setup.

For example, let’s say that you want to set up a number of sites with identical settings and configurations in other niche markets. This could be for a regional retailer, or an insurance agency with offices in various locations, where each office will manage the content of their own separate blog. Think of all the time spent tweaking and finetuning your discussion settings, widgets and sidebars, configuring SEO plugins and navigation menus, creating the main content sections, customizing your theme, etc. Now you can instantly install a fully-functioning, perfectly configured website every single time with only a few mouse clicks.

Restore A Backup On A Different Location With Correct Internal Referencing Links.

Simply backing up WP files and uploading file backups won’t clone your websites or blogs successfully. You also have to copy the WP database and ensure that it references the new domain. Otherwise, your database data will be restored to another site, but still be pointing back to the old site. That’s why it’s important to use a WordPress backup plugin that is specifically designed for cloning. This allows you to back up site “A” and restore it to site “B” with all your themes, plugin and site settings and configurations included, and everything will point correctly to the new site (i.e. site “B”), instead of the old one (site “A”).

Don’t Waste Time Fixing Serious Problems … Just Restore!

Here’s another useful time-saving tip: if your blog ever gets hacked, or an unauthorized user somehow gets in and causes damage to your site, instead of spending days or weeks trying to repair or figure out the problem, just make a backup of your broken site, delete everything, and restore a previous working version. Your site will be up and running again and you can then send the damaged site’s backup files to an expert who can then try to understand how your site got interfered with and how to repair or identify any vulnerabilities.

Here’s one more great tip:

Keep A Historical Record Of Your Website’s Progress.

Imagine in a couple of years that your business has grown and transformed into an online success. Wouldn’t it be great to show people how everything got started? Or maybe you’ve changed things around on your site so much and would like to restore things to a place of simplicity. Perhaps you’ve accidentally deleted a bunch of articles and want to get these back.

If you keep a weekly backup of your site, your chances of losing information are almost negligible because you no longer need to worry about where things are stored or organized. Just go back to the time when you remember you had that file, restore the backup (note: it can be located anywhere, even on a test site) and grab the data you need.
