Back up your files
It’s important to make a backup file of your blog and website periodically. Every blog entry and page that you create or edit is stored on your website hosting company’s server. However, in the event that your host company server fails or gets infected with a virus (it’s rare, but it can happen) the best way to guarantee that you have a current backup, is to create backup files.
Blogging frequently? Backup your blog files once a week. It takes just a few minutes. This attached, downloadable PDF file shows you how to backup your blog posts and website pages.
