Your Goal

Ensure your site operates smoothly by regularly maintaining it.

Backup your site

  1. Website backups are important for protecting against data loss, recovering from disasters, and avoiding errors or security issues. They act as a safety net for server failures, hacks, or accidental deletions. Regular backups bring peace of mind, allowing you to quickly restore your website when needed.
  2. Your Elementor Hosting subscription has a built-in backup. Your website is automatically backed up every 24 hours.
  3. The automated backups will be saves for two weeks.
  4. Additionally, you have the option to create a manual backup of your site.
  5. If necessary, you can restore your website using a backed-up version of your site.
  1. To manage your backups, go to My Elementor and access the site settings (Manage this Site).
  2. Here, you can create a new backup or restore a version.

Update plugins

  1. Most WordPress plugins receive regular updates to introduce new features and address security concerns.
  2. It’s important to update your plugins regularly to prevent compatibility and security issues.

  3. To update your plugins, go to WP dashboard → Plugins.

Improve performance

  1. Site performance refers to how fast a website works, including how quickly pages load and how well it responds to user interactions.
  2. Site performance is important because it affects user experience and can impact search rankings, conversions, and your brand’s reputation.
  3. Your site performance (e.g. how fast it loads) is affected by many factors- image sizes, file formats, number of plugins, etc.
  4. To test your site performance, use an online tool (e.g., Google’s PageSpeed Insight).
  5. If your performance score is low, visit the Elementor Help Center and other resources to learn how to improve it.

You’ll work with both WordPress and Elementor- some actions will be done through WordPress but most of the time you’ll use Elementor. * Your Cloud Website account includes a pre-installed WordPress account and the Elementor Plugins, so you don’t need to install anything, you can get straight to work!
