The importance of website backup can not be over-emphasized. Who would want to put in considerable effort and time into writing and updating blog content only to wake up one morning to discover all has disappeared?
Funny enough though, i discover that probably because this does not occur frequently, a lot of webmasters take huge risk by not doing a website backup frequently.
Some use wordpress plugin to do a website backup but this is not a comprehensive enough website backup.
I know quite a number of webmasters use the best web hosting service (Hostgator) as their web host just as i equally do. My emphasis in this post therefore is on how to back up your blog and website content using Hostgator Control Panel.
