How to Remove Your Website in WordPress

You made the decision, you want to take down your website. However, before you do, you want to back up your website first. You have three options to do this in WordPress: install a premium plugin, use a Web hosting service, or register with a new domain. We will discuss each option and how you can implement it.

Install a Premium Plugin

The quickest and simplest way to remove a website in WordPress is by using a premium plugin. The plugins we will discuss don’t require any coding knowledge, they’re extremely easy to use, and they provide a reliable and complete solution to your problem. The best part is that you can download them directly from WordPress itself so you don’t have to go anywhere else to install them.

Here are the top ten plugins that allow you to remove a WordPress site with ease.

1. Backup and Migrate

Backup and Migrate is an incredible plugin that does exactly what its name implies. With this plugin installed, you can perform a complete backup of your website and then easily restore it to any host you want. The best part is that this plugin is completely free, which means you’ll have access to its vast functionality for the whole lifetime of your website.

2. All in One WP Email

All in One WP Email is another handy plugin for performing backups and removing a WordPress site. Like the previous plugin, this one is also a very popular choice amongst users due to its ease of use. When you install this plugin, you will see an email icon appear next to your WordPress dashboard’s email icon. When you click it, you will be presented with options to choose from when setting up your backup schedule: weekly, biweekly, or monthly.

By default, this plugin will perform backups every Sunday at 12 p.m. and then again at 4 p.m. The best part about this option is that you can change these times via the plugin’s settings page. This way, you can adjust the schedule to fit your needs. If you want to get daily backups or perform them at a different time than the above options, you can do that as well.

3. VaultPress – Ensure Secure Backups

If you store confidential or private information on your website, you might want to consider using the VaultPress plugin. The best part about this plugin is that it provides an additional layer of security for your data. When you install it, you will be presented with the option to make your site’s backups more secure. To do this, generate a strong password and make sure you keep it private. Also, you can choose to use two-factor authentication (2FA) for your backups if you have the Google Authenticator app on your phone. Using these two methods is much more secure than using just a regular password.

4. Better WP Security

The Better WP Security plugin provides a ton of features built into one place. When you install this plugin, you will see an additional layer of security appear on your WordPress dashboard. Once you log in, you will see a screen that looks like this:

This dashboard gives you a quick visual representation of your website’s security settings. You can control various aspects of your site’s security from here, like changing your password or adding more security questions to your login. The best part about this dashboard is that it keeps you up to date with the latest news and security changes made to WordPress itself. You don’t have to go anywhere else to check for updates, they will be delivered directly to you via email.

5. WP Mailer

WP Mailer is another plugin that makes it incredibly easy to send out email newsletters to your subscribers. You can install this plugin and get started with a quick email marketing campaign in no time. Just choose your list of subscribers and then set the content of your email newsletter. You can add images, videos, and any other content you might want in your email pitch. When you are satisfied with the content, click on the “Send out now” button and your email will be on its way to your subscribers.

This is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to get started with an email marketing campaign. Since you don’t have to lift a finger to get the work done, you can focus your energy on growing your business.

6. Google Analytics

In case you’re wondering, the Google Analytics plugin allows you to track the traffic coming to your site. This plugin is extremely easy to use and offers an overview of your site’s traffic in real-time. You can install it in no time on your WordPress dashboard and begin using it. Just log in to your Google Analytics account and then click on the button that appears in the top right corner of your WordPress dashboard:

This will then initiate the installation process of the Google Analytics plugin. After you complete the installation, you will be presented with a few options on what to do next:

You can either click on the dashboard link which will take you to your site’s analytics dashboard or you can choose to go directly to your blog posts’ analytics reports. The latter is the more preferred route, as you can then drill down into specific blog posts to find the data you want to analyze.

The Google Analytics plugin provides a wealth of information about your site’s traffic in real-time. You can keep track of the number of visitors to your site and which ones are returning regularly. Plus, you can use this data to find the sweet spot for online advertising and marketing campaigns.

7. WP Minify

WP Minify is a premium plugin that compresses and minifies CSS, JavaScript, and HTML as you upload them to your site. Using these three tools simultaneously can seriously cut down on the size of your website’s load time. This is particularly beneficial for large businesses with lots of assets online. For instance, imagine a corporate website with lots of intricate designs and lots of JavaScript-based interactions. By using all of these tools, the developer can greatly reduce the size of this site without losing any functionality.

8. Security Suite

The Security Suite plugin gives you an entire layer of security for your WordPress account. When you install this plugin, you will see an icon appear in the upper-right corner of your WordPress dashboard with the name Security Suite next to it. This icon, when clicked, will open up a menu with three options:

The first option, Two-Factor Authentication, provides you with the basic two-factor authentication process. You will be asked to either use your phone as a security code or generate a short code using a free generator (provided by the plugin’s developer). Once you have entered your phone number or generated the short code, the system will ask you to enter a verification code which you will receive via SMS or email.

This option is an easy and convenient way to provide two-factor authentication for your WordPress account. The next option, Lockdown (the last one for now), will put a firewall around your WordPress account. When activated, this plugin will block all traffic that isn’t coming from a previously whitelisted IP address. The best part is that this plugin integrates directly with the most popular web hosting services, like Bluehost and HostGator, so you don’t have to worry about configuration issues.

9. Sucuri Anti-Virus

Sucuri Anti-Virus is another plugin that can secure your WordPress site from malicious attacks. When you install this plugin, you will see an icon appear in the upper-right corner of your dashboard with the name Sucuri Anti-Virus next to it. This icon, when clicked, will open the plugin’s settings page where you can choose the types of malware you want to protect against. Once you have made your selection, you can choose from three different levels of protection: Standard, Plus, and Pro. If you have a specific vulnerability you want to protect against, you can also search for an option called “Protection For Specific Sites or Domains.”

This plugin provides another layer of security for your WordPress site, like the previously discussed VaultPress and Google Analytics. However, if you’re already using these two plugins then you might not need this additional protection. The best part about this malware scanner is that it is constantly updated and changed to stay ahead of the curve in terms of detecting new threats. Additionally, you don’t have to constantly monitor your system for updates as the developers do this for you automatically.

10. No Brainer Games

No Brainer Games is another plugin in the form of a deck of cards. When you click on the button that appears in the upper-right corner of your WP dashboard:
