WordPress is an incredible product but there are many things that can cause you to lose your website. You could get hacked, your hosting company could go out of business, you could install a bad plugin or theme, the list is endless and without good backups, you could lose everything. If this isn't one of the things keeping you up at night, then it really should be. It was keeping us up at night so we decided to do something about it.
