Backing Up Your Web Site: Priceless
Tens of thousands of genealogists own personal web sites that display the information they wish to make public to the world. With today's technology, very little computer expertise is required to create a web site. You can find a wide variety of software tools to easily create and maintain a personal web site. Some of those tools will keep copies of everything on your own computer's hard drive while others do not. If your tool of choice does not keep a local copy, ask yourself one question:
"What happens when the web server has a problem?"
Whether you own a genealogy web site or any other sort of web site, you always need to make sure your site is backed up.
