WordPress is an open-source platform opens tons of vulnerabilities. But, it doesn’t mean we should take a step away.

Rather, we should aim for hardening the WordPress and make sure everything is kept in a proper vault. One way of doing that is by keeping a backup of the complete website, regularly.

Now, you can do it manually, by downloading the files and folders from front-end and the complete database from the back-end. And then, keeping a copy of these files at a separate and secure location.

Or, you can go with the second method, i.e., using the backup plugin. These can make the process automatic and will help you have a peace of mind. Today, I’m going to share a compilation of best WordPress backup plugins.

So, go ahead and check the best options we have.
