1. Well it’s good news for website owners because someone has finally made it easy to backup your website files and databases without needing to log into your cPanel control panel every single time.

      Gone are the days when you forget to backup or run out of time to backup your precious data.

      Think about this for a moment…

      What happens when your web host has a failure and your account get’s damaged or worse case scenario, the web host loses everything?

      Do you rely on your web host to take backups for you? Check the fine print of most web hosts terms of service and they will state that they are not responsible for your data, even if it’s their fault. Great isn’t it.

      So what’s the solution. Simple. Backup your data regularly.

      Let me tell you how to do it on cPanel web servers, it’s quite labour intensive.
      a) Go to your http://yourwebsite.com:2082 and enter in your login credentials.
      b) Go to the Backup icon (will look different depending on your cPanel theme)
      c) Click on the link to download the home directory backup (this will take all your files)
      d) Click on the links to download your databases
      e) Click on the links to download your email filters or email aliases.

      Now do that once a week or month for your home directory (files) and everyday for your databases like WordPress, Forums, Shopping Carts, Email Lists.

      No thanks! I have better things to do with my time.

      That’s where Backup Smart comes in. It’s a desktop software application that runs on Windows and MAC OSX. It automates the whole backup process I’ve just outlined for you.

      You just set it and forget it. Backups are done on a schedule set by you, it’s just so easy.

      If you even have just one website with a database then you need this software to protect your assests. But if you have more than one website on different servers with multiple databases then this software is a huge time saver and you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.

      To Your Success,

        Awesome, thank you for this info! I own a webhosting business ( www.imeanwebhosting.com ), and while I will say that most good hosts triple backup your data (once to server, again to an offsite server, and again to hard dvd backup daily), you can never be too safe! So software like this is an excellent idea! =)
