Last Updated: December 12, 2023

The single best thing you can do to protect your website and hosting plan is to keep backups. These are critical if you make a big change to your site you don’t like, if your hosting is hacked, if you decide to move to another hosting provider, if a file gets corrupted or deleted by accident, and many other reasons. Basically, having a backup is the best fail safe out there.
