Re: Tips to choose the best backup plugin for Wordpress

I am using a direct backup option through Cpanel. In that I have to configure the automatic backup schedule. Once it is configured the backup is done automatically in form of .rar file and I can download that also. It is good for those who have a single site. Because when you restore everything is wiped out. It is also effective because you have a backup you in your pc. And you can upload and restore that also fast.
