Creating regular backups for your website is the best security measure that you can take. If your website ever gets hacked or infected, this will help restore the site in no time. Not only that but having a few backup files can also help you gain access to your site if you lose access to it.
There are plenty of WordPress backup plugins available, in this article we are listing you the best and cheapest WordPress backup plugins that we use for our Web Design and Development projects. This list is meant for small or medium business websites which are getting fewer content updates, which means one backup file can sustain you for months or so.
At Neuvo WebTech, AIOWPM is the most used backup plugin, we have been using this plugin for years and it never let us down. The biggest advantage of this plugin is, if you have a small website then you will not have to pay a penny ever to get it backed up and restored. Though it supports cloud backup integrations, we prefer to download the backup file and store it in our private cloud.
