No matter what business industry your company is in and no matter what your web site is about, WordPress can give you everything you need to have a website which works perfectly. There is a reason why most web sites today use the WordPress CMS. It is the most popular in the world and due to that the interest of hackers is huge. Every WordPress web site owner must take some standard and some non-standard actions to keep their WP site secure. WordPress is an open source CMS which is a plus and a minus. It allows developers to code their own plugins and modify WordPress to suit their needs. At the same time that is a minus because it gives a chance of the hackers to inspect the code and look for vulnerabilities. They can use them later to compromise web sites and harm other web sites, servers and networks.

How to backup my WordPress site?

Data protection is as important as the security protection for your WordPress web site. Noone will be happy to lose the data of their blog or business web site. That’s why web site owners must ensure they have proper processes in place to perform regular backups. Those backups will be useful in case of a web site compromise, a server failure or just a human error. Keep in mind that even if you use the best WordPress hosting plan it can’t guarantee 100% data protection.
