Sometimes, we just do not back our websites up enough, thinking it will not really matter. You will thank yourself in the long run when you take the time to consider backing up your websites files.
  3. Installing SSL – When you install an SSL on your website, it encrypts the communication between one point to the other, which is the server and the browser.
