Website Back Up Service

Nixgrafix Website Back Up Service

What would happen if you woke up tomorrow and your web host had accidentally deleted your website ?

It happened to one of my clients and. . . you guessed it, he didn’t have a backup ! After we developed his site, he decided he would deal with his own site maintenance. . . he didn’t but that won’t ever happen to him again, if we have anything to do with it* and I’m here to help you get prepared too.

Nightmare scenario

His entire business went down the drain with one mistake by his web host. It wasn’t even his fault, but I had to start his business from scratch because of that one mistake. He’s not alone either: 40% of small to medium businesses don’t back up their data !

If you have a website, today is the day to get your backup plan straight.

Why are Website Backups so Important ?

There are five reasons why you should back up your website:

  1. It’s not your web host’s responsibility to make back ups available to you.
    A surprising number of web hosts don’t back up your website regularly. Of the few that do, most of them simply do so for their own protection and don’t make the files available to their customers.
  2. Storing the original site isn’t enough
    Over time, websites are tweaked and changed and those changes often won’t be reflected in the original version. If you run a forum, blog or CRM system, much of your valuable content is uploaded by your users, and won’t exist in any other place than on your website.
  3. You need to be ready to react quickly
    Having an up to date back up in place will allow you to get back online quickly after a mishap. There are many reasons why you need to get your website back online quickly including loss of income and potential SEO penalties (according to some sources).
  4. Peace of mind
    Before I started backing up my websites, it was always on my mind that I needed to do something. It was my responsibility and I’d be letting a lot of people down if I lost the latest version of my site.
  5. It’s your protection against viruses
    Web hosts don’t tend to proactively run virus and malware scanners against your website. Therefore, keeping a backup may be your easiest, and best protection; allowing you to turn back the clock after an attack. While this doesn’t prevent attacks, it does cure them when needed.

Backup Horror Stories . . . Yes these are meant to scare you !

First watch this entertaining video from Pixar about how they almost lost all of Toy Story 2 because someone accidentally deleted character files.

If you’d like us to take care of YOUR website maintenance for you (SEE HERE), just let us know and we’ll be happy to help. If you’d prefer to do them yourself, Great ! One way or another, just make sure you backup your data.
