WordPress Backup Service
If you have a website built using WordPress; you aren’t alone. Over 25% of the internet is built on WordPress. If you don’t backup WordPress regularly; you aren’t alone. Many other business owners make the same mistake. Sometimes with disastrous results.
Imagine that you wake up one morning, grab your cup of coffee and head out to your office or your retail store. You get to your business address and are stunned. The building is gone. What was once a thriving business is now a vacant lot. No sign of the enterprise you worked so hard to build remains. Your investment of time and precious capital is gone. Prospective and current customers drive by, but no one stops. Like you they are shaking their heads; wondering what happened. “It was here yesterday,” they say. “It was just right here” you cry, sinking to your knees, sick to your stomach, wondering what happened and what you must do next.
Sounds crazy right?
But that is exactly what can happen if your website goes down and you don’t have a backup copy. WordPress backup is essential.
WPbutler365 is the solution! Let us protect all your data.
Why Web Sites Go Down
When you think of disappearing web sites, you might suspect hackers. That’s certainly one reason your site can go down. WordPress security is important. Hackers can hijack your site, inject malicious code, and get you de-listed from Google.
One of the recovery steps requires restoring your code to pre-hack status. If you don’t have a WordPress backup of your site, this can mean recreating the site from scratch. But websites go down for less nefarious reasons such as:
One of the most bizarre server outages occurred to Rackspace back in 2007. A truck smashed into a transformer causing an electrical outage. The back-up generators kicked in but not fast enough for the chillers to keep up. In the end, Rackspace had to shut down until power could be restored. The loss in revenue to Rackspace, a not so cool $3.5 million to refund to customers.
In 2015, a NetDepot data center went down for over 20 hours. That’s almost one full day. What would you do in that situation? What would it cost your company? A USA Today survey of 200 data center managers found that over 80% of these managers reported that their downtime costs exceeded $50,000 per hour. Drill that down into what it means for the average small business. The SBA estimates that companies with between 1 and 4 employees have receipts of about $387,000 per year. If you are open 24/7 that means you lose over $1,000 every day you have an outage. The number is higher if your business day or week is shorter.
So not only do you need a WordPress backup, you shouldn’t rely on your hosting company to provide it. If your primary hosting company goes down and takes your site and your site backup with it you are screwed. No secondary hosting can help if they don’t have access to a backup WordPress copy.
Natalie Sisson, the Suitcase Entrepreneur, relates how she lost her site after hiring someone to do some work on it. What was supposed to be a minor update to make the site mobile friendly crashed the entire site. Natalie writes, “Losing your website and freaking out should not actually happen to any of us” and we agree. Before any changes are made to your WordPress site it should be backed up off-site. Small companies are not the only ones at risk of content loss. Toy Story 2 was almost completely deleted by one line of code.
In 1998, just a year from release, someone inadvertently entered one line of code that systematically started deleting all of the files. One of the film’s technical directors saw what was happening and phoned for the computer to be unplugged.
It was, but not before 90% of the film was gone. Luckily, Galyn Susman, the supervising technical director, had given birth and was working from home. She had diligently carried a copy of the entire film home once a week. She zipped home to get her computer and it was swaddled in blankets and in the words of one person “carried into Pixar like an Egyptian pharaoh.” Thanks to Galyn we have Toy Story 2, because Pixar did not have a good backup copy.
