Web hosting services sometimes fail your expectations. You installed a WordPress website and you met so many glitches in your website because of the limited resources provided by your hosting company. Now you decided to move your WordPress installation away from the hosting provider. In other circumstances, you may need to cleanup the hosting directories or backup your WordPress installations. For these procedures, you need to backup your WordPress installations.
Although, there are other ways to perform the backup manually, it is easier to done this by some plugins. It is more convenient for those changing the domain name.
