Backing up your website regularly is important. As you know we regularly back up all websites on our cloud servers but you should ALWAYS have a full backup of your site on your computer just as a safeguard.
It is especially important to take a full backup before updating ANY programme or script that runs your site. Things like WordPress, Cubecart, Opencart or any other web script. By taking a full backup should something go wrong with your updates, the old version can be restored quickly.
Below is a video to show you how to backup both your sites files and your databases.
