It would be really bad if you have spent many hours and thousands of dollars on your website and one fine day you lose all the content on it because it is destroyed by a hardware failure. This happens to many websites and the number of websites loosing content to hardware failure just keeps increasing. The most common solution for this problem is to make a backup of your website. This means you need to duplicate and store all the files on your website and any other database information in a safe place.
Click on the “File Manager” link. With most hosts, you now find the public_html folder. Click on that to open the folder and its contents. You will see the files and directories already in the public_html folder. If using FileZilla or another FTP software, you need to log in with your hosting account login information. You will then see the folders on your computer in one window and the folders on your website in another window. Select the public_html folder.
Make efforts to check each page in your website for completeness, like missing links, graphics, and so on. There are sites online which will do this absolutely free.
Another idea is to avail of one of those all-in-one membership management software systems. This will get your website started in no time at all, even if you do not have the technical knowledge, since most of its administrative features are automaton. These membership software programs will reduce your workload by 75%, it’s easier and faster!
Your budget will keep you organized in many ways. It is so easy for Brides to say, “It’s only $150, that’s not bad.” “Wow, I can get it for $600, great” Pretty soon all these great deals get you way too much in debt! Don’t do it, as the bills come in so does the stress. This is the type of stress that will ruin your day. Better to have a little and be happy, than with an abundance and be miserable.
On the upside of price scale you get some amazing options. These include unlimited disk space for you to build as many pages as you want, unlimited email storage, and of course an option to allow an unlimited number of users to access your website. No limits on the amount of traffic you can drive to your site. Yahoo Small Business doesn’t just offer Cheap Unlimited Website Hosting. You can say that it’s a complete business plan made easy for the user! You can market your products, sell them online or even send emails to registered users.
Another way to transfer your web pages is to copy the source code by right clicking on the page as you see it when you visit the site and select ‘view/source’. It will come up on Notepad.
Remember, a great web host will be completely transparent to you. You shouldn’t even know that they are there. A bad web host on the other hand will be a thorn in your side every single day.
