A Tech Smart Boss always has a backup to the backup (and a few backup plans beyond that). If you listen to our podcasts
and YouTube videos
, we commonly recommend Wordpress
as our content management system of choice.
Most Wordpress hosting vendors include some sort of backup and recovery options, but I always like having a little extra protection. I’m not saying I don’t trust my hosting vendor’s backups, but yeah, I don’t trust them.
This week’s Cool Tech of the Week is a good option for your toolkit, WPvivid.
I installed it on all my sites this week, the setup was simple and easy. What I like best is the remote storage feature and specifically they integrate with pCloud, a tool we highlighted in the past
. Plus it does more than backup, you can quickly do a staging site as well.
Check it out, the pricing is great, and so far, my backups have been running great (be sure to test out a restore everyone once and a while just to be sure).
