Frequently Asked Question

How often should I back up my sites? Databases?
Last Updated 6 years ago

The answer depends on a few things.

Your website does not need frequent backup for a few reasons. These days, most website design, layout, etc remains mostly static. With the popularity of content management systems, such as Wordpress, most of your content is added through an interface and stored in your database.

Given this, the suggested backup interval for the site itself (the FTP backups) is once monthly, unless you have an HTML site that you update frequently.

The suggested backup interval for your database(s) depends on how active your site is. If you add a lot of new content (articles, etc), or you add new users to your membership site, or your plugins update frequently - you should consider weekly or even daily.
