How Easily Could You Re-Create Your WordPress Blog
Do you use WordPress for your blog or website like lots of us marketers do? More and more people are discovering the power of WordPress for quick and easy website creation now with hundreds of new sites cropping up every day. According to WordPress.org over 25 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home”.
There are blogs on just about every topic you can think of and tons more on topics that you would never think of in your wildest dreams. I come from a web development background and in the past I developed all of my websites using either free hand coding or more recently with a web editor like Dreamweaver. How times have changed, like many of my web development colleagues I now use WordPress for just about everything I do.
There are so many plugins and widgets for wordpress now and more being developed all of the time that you can do just about anything with WordPress that would have taken some serious programming not that long ago.
Everyday, more and more people are earning their living online using a WordPress site, finally able to break free of that dreaded JOB to take control of their own income, their own life.
But, unfortunately as is often the case it’s not all good news. As with anything in life that is successful, there is always a section of society that seeks to capitalise on that success. Some people get a wierd sense of pleasure by just screwing up things when they see someone doing well. And WordPress is no exception. The more popular it becomes the more prone it is to hacking. Because WordPress is a standard piece of software open to anyone to develop plugins and widgets for it, it seems it isn’t too difficult for an expert programmer to hack into.
Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t happen to everyone every day but it can and does happen. So while WordPress is great when everything is going well, you don’t need to be an expert programmer to use it, it is a different matter if it gets corrupted and you need to get it back online somehow.
If you are one of the many people that have come to rely on your site for some or all of your income, any amount of downtime can be devastating. Your income could disappear overnight.
I have had to re-create some of my sites in the past and even with my programming background it wasn’t a 5 minute job. That’s why I was very interested in a new WordPress backup software that I received details of this week. EZWpBackup has been designed specifically for WordPress and provides a very quick backup of your entire site. EZWpBackup is a plugin so installation is very easy from your dashboard. Once installed you will see a new link on your dashboard ‘Generate Backup’. All you have to do is click the link and wait a few seconds for the software to backup everything. You then download your backup file to somewhere safe ready to upload if you ever need to. You will need to take regular backups as you make changes to your site to ensure that you have the latest changes backed up but it only takes a few seconds.
What I particularly like about this plugin is the many other things it provides for you. Ever wanted to move to another web host but didn’t know how to move your blog without starting from scratch. EZWpBackup solves this problem for you. Simply take a backup of your site and upload it to your new host account. What about creating a master blog and using it to clone multiple other blogs from it. Again, EZWpBackup makes it easy. You can upload your backup as many times as you want creating clone sites that you can sell on to other people.
The creators of EZWpBackup have an offer on currently where they are throwing in with the deal their EZWpRestore software that makes the restore process just as easy as the backup. There are also including a few cool bonuses which made the offer a no brainer for me. As you know, I rarely do product pitches but this one is a real help to Internet Marketers using WordPress. I bought it and have already used it. I have to say it is very easy to use and will save me a lot of heartache should I have to re-create any of my WordPress sites again in the future.
Until next time remember,
