What Should I Look At To Find The Best WordPress Backup Plugins

The Best WordPress Backup Plugins

Do you think owning a website and installing some plugins is enough? I don’t think so, to get a better result you must maintain your website with the best WordPress Backup Plugin.

I am not gonna talk about what can be done to improve your website? Or how to do it? And where you can find it?

Here I m going to talk about something more important than these questions. i.e; How to secure your website files before it is hacked, data fraud, or content rewrite?

You might have noticed, that when your website is getting a high response, popular among people then you will start to get fraud messages, unnecessary emails, and many more. And a small mistake your website will be hacked or you will lose all your data. Then as a website owner, you can’t do anything except rely on the developer.

But one thing you can do is install the WordPress Backup Plugin on your WordPress website so that even after your website is hacked or anything bad happens, you will have your backed-up file with you. And it will be somehow easy for you to start again. You won’t lose your years of work if you keep backup. And as a WordPress user, you can backup your contents (your posts, pages, comments, custom fields, terms, navigation menus, and custom posts) without external help. But apart from the contents, there is other stuff too which needs to be backed up. So, you have to install and activate the WordPress backup plugin.

Export the contents from the WordPress website dashboard

Talking about WordPress Backup Plugins, you will find plenty of them in the WordPress market. It will confuse you and you will be in a dilemma about which to choose, so we start to read reviews and look at their download records. And we choose one of them randomly. Do you think it’s a good decision just by reading reviews or just looking at the rating star?

Sometimes the plugins with good reviews, and high rating stars won’t be suitable for your website and meet your needs. And I’m 100% sure that as a website owner you don’t want to waste your money on some unsuitable plugins. You will search for a plugin that might meet some of your needs.

What to look at while choosing the WordPress Backup Plugin?

When choosing the WordPress Backup Plugins first you must look at

Their features so that you will know

  • what kind of facilities you will get if you install this plugin.
  • whether it provides updates or not. Because, if the plugin stops updating then I don’t think it will match with the current situation.
  • whether it offers paid version as well as a free/ trial version to test. If it doesn’t offer a free version then what’s the point to buy and install this plugin. When you need an expert to understand how it functions. And a small mistake you will lose everything.
Everest Backup Plugin, as an example, for you to know the features of the plugin

Next, look for compatibility

What if this plugin doesn’t match your website’s PHP version, WordPress version, and others. It might rate as 5 stars with great positive reviews and millions of downloads and it won’t work for you. I know some of the plugins which don’t work in the latest versions and your website has all the latest versions of servers. Will you pay for that plugin that is not compatible with your website? I guess, the answer is “No”. So look for a compatible plugin for your website.
