Who do want to get his website into disasters and danger. In my opinion, no one wants to, do you?

I mean to say that a powerful platform came into existence when your hard-ships bound with it.

Suppose, if someone is very serious towards blogging and very careful about his site, but did he know? In some paces he is not very well, how he should be?

He don’t care for his site’s backup files such as FTP files, folders and Database files. Keep in mind :idea:, its very dangerous for his site, the outcome would be losing the site from his hands. Let’s stepping forward a little:

I’m Predicting here :shock:, to get you in the right way.

How would you cope, if your website would be hacked, what will you do?

Of course you can’t do anything, without having backup of your website’s files i.e (FTP files, folders and Database files), your website is nothing without these backup files, everything will be finished, that’s it.

Of course it would be the better and awesome way to protect your website, in case of hacking. 😉
