Backup is always important for every website. Especially when your site hacked by someone or you accidentally lock yourself out, or when all data are erased.
Most of the WordPress users don’t make the backup of their website and they regret later when all are erased. The backup plugin helps you to save your website data in a reliable place.
Many WordPress backup plugins are available but very few of them allow for a complete backup. Full backup means backup of database and WP-Content folder. Choosing the right plugin is very difficult. Let’s check the top backup plugins.
