The Importance of Backing Up Website Data

Backing up data is very important for businesses especially for those who host their own website. It is common for websites to be defaced, edited or taken down by hackers.  Having a backup of your website files allows you to reconstruct your website and put it online in just a few minutes.

Recently, the popular website was hacked and infected by a malicious variant of the popular Black Hole Exploit Kit. This website was defaced and it infected several thousands of visitors. Good thing that the administrators of the website have back ups and were able to remove the malicious code and restore the website immediately.

You might ask what would be a good file data storage for your website backup? You should consider online media storage. Instead of backing up your data locally, your data is stored in a different location which can be accessed using the Internet. This allows you to keep your backup isolated in case your system is attacked and the whole system gets damaged.
