SnatchCode – Instant Site Safety

SnatchCode is a tool that people can use to ensure the security and safety of their websites – with virtually zero effort – thanks to the web-app’s automatic backup system. SnatchCode is not the first company to help people prevent having their sites taken down by hackers, of course, but it is unique in its devotion to maintaining a simple and straightforward experience for users who want to protect their systems without getting bogged down by unnecessarily complicated workups.

If you’ve got your FTP details and five minutes to spare, then you’ve got everything you need to get started protecting your site with the help of SnatchCode. Select a pricing plan based on the size of your site and hand over the information SnatchCode requests. In most cases, this is as simple as typing in your FTP details or MySQL database information. SnatchCode will begin taking site backups automatically each hour or each day. You’ll receive an email each time your data is backed up, and the information itself will be stored securely in the cloud. If your site is hacked or another catastrophic event occurs, just head to your SnatchCode dashboard and request the latest backup of your site. In no time at all, your website will be back up and running.

Users with upgraded SnatchCode Plus and SnatchCode Pro accounts also get access to the web-app’s Undo Feature, which helps eliminate human error and easily lets people replace broken files with their latest daily backups. Site owners who login to the SnatchCode dashboard and click “undo” will automatically see their broken files replaced with data from the latest backup. For people who want to protect their sites from hackers but aren’t sure where to start, clicking over to SnatchCode is a step in the right direction.
