Building a website for business, portfolio and blogging is all fine but how do you secure your data? There may come some incidents that may cause you to lose your data, say a server crash. And it’s not that internet is the safest place; there is always the imminent threat of data theft and virus or hacker attacks.
It is always a safe option to back up your WordPress database beforehand. So if anything happens to your website you just need to get hold of the backup data and you will have your website up and running again in no time. Here are few plugins that will help you in backing up your WordPress database.
