If you have a website then you should be backing it up! No questions. Sure your web hosting company should be doing backups but if they suffer an major outage you won’t be able to get to your backup files they are storing.
This video shows how to take a backup of your web hosting account using the built-in cPanel backup function. There are better ways of backing up websites, such as BAckup Buddy for WordPress, and that will be covered in future posts and videos.
