Backup Your Website With FTP
In this video you’re going to learn how to use FTP to back up your website.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It’s a way to transfer files from your computer to your website and from your website to your computer. So it’s a really good way to back up your website, especially if a backup plugin doesn’t seem to work for you.
One of the drawbacks with using FTP is that it doesn’t backup your database. But you can use a plugin to take care of that. I use WP Database Backup.
Download FileZilla from https://filezilla-project.org/ but please take care when you install as it may have unwanted programs bundled with it.
You can also use FTP to verify your website in Google Webmaster Tools, Yahoo and Bing Webmaster Tools How to Submit Your Website to Google, Yahoo and Bing Using FTP
