I published a post yesterday over on Cloud Storage Buzz listing 10 ways to backup your website to the cloud. There are a lot of services out there that can help you protect your website and while many of the services I mentioned at Cloud Storage Buzz will help you keep a regular backup of your website I wanted to give you the TL:DR version here.

CodeGuard
If you just want an automated backup of your website files and databases these service is great. They are like the Backblaze of website backup, not only is the backup setup easy but more importantly restoring your website is easy.

Sucuri
Fantastic service and the only one I recommend if you need malware clean up on your website. They do a great job.

VaultPress
If you only use WordPress for your website and want to make absolutely sure it is backed up, get Vaultpress. That is all you need to know.

Go backup your website!

I don’t usually cross post stuff from Cloud Storage Buzz here on LGR Internet Solutions but this is important and needs to be talked about everywhere. Today, March 31st, is World Backup Day and I want to remind you to make sure you have a backup of your data. If you do already have a…

Use CloudFlare Page Rules to Protect WordPress from Brute Force Attacks

I have talked about CloudFlare before and there are many reasons why you should use them, from helping to speed up your website to making it easy to monetize your website using Viglink.

Barcamp Regina

I meant to post this several months ago but I thought better late than never. I presented about website speed at the first ever Regina Barcamp. I could probably write post upon post upon post on each slide but I will just post the presentation here and if there are questions leave a comment or…

High Resolution QR Codes

I decided a little while ago to attend Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas in January 2012. For the conference I needed some business cards and wanted to add a QR Code to the card to make it easy to contact me by scanning the code. The problem is most of the QR code generators that…

Review Dropbox

Over two years ago I signed up with Dropbox and wrote a quick little review of it. Since then I have gotten constant comments on that post of people wanting to increase their Dropbox referral space by leaving their Dropbox referral code. At one point it got so bad I just finally turned off comments…

SEO Site Tools

I realized that I have taken quite a break from updating my blog and thought I should get back into writing here more often. A lot has happened since I have been updating here regularly. Many of you have discovered how much better using Google Chrome is as a web browser. I was reluctant to…

WordPress CSVPig Plugin

One of the tasks I have been doing regularly lately is converting older static HTML websites into WordPress websites. For smaller websites it is not difficult to copy and paste the data into the new WordPress site. The problem is, what do you do with a larger website of a few hundred to a few…

Cloudflare

Having a reliable and fast serving website is essential today. You can have the best website in the world but if it is not up when people are trying to load it then there is not much point. Not to mention how important it is to have a fast loading website. Having a content delivery…

MozyHome Alternative

I am sure if you have stopped by here in the past and read a few posts you would know that I am a pretty hard core Mozy online backup fan. I have good reason to be, they have helped me keep my business data safe with MozyPro. I have survived a hard drive failure…
