    Hello BHW. I would like to know what is easiest method to download my site or something like that, in case that something goes wrong? I have put so much effort to this website, If something happens to it like it happened to my last site, I am going to kill myself literally. Thank you.

    1) Use cPanel or whatever panel you use to manage the entire domain. Zip the public_html directory. Use FTP to download it
    2) Use a backup service/program such as R1soft which will automatically backup your entire hosting account and all of the databases (or only select ones if you want.)

    You can install a plugin that fully backups daily weekly and monthly all your WordPress files including databases too...
    Here is the link to this plugin that I am using right now and I am very happy with its results:
    You can set it up even to email your backups if theire size is 10Mb or smaller, or you can just set it so email you only the database backup that in most cases doesn't overpass this size limit...
    After a backup is completed you can download it to your computer.
    Hope it helps,
    Have a nice day...

    I personally use the Duplicator plugin for one-off backups, and WPBackup for weekly database backups to FTP or AWS etc.

    Backups? In cpanel, find the backup/restore.

    Then select backup everything..

    After the backup is complete go to your filemanager. See the Backup file and download it..

    If anything happens, go to backup/restore and click restore.. Upload your backup file.. and your site will completely restored which includes the database.
