UpdraftPlus + Amazon S3 Storage = Awesome

Take the stress out of keeping backups of your WordPress blog. Just sign up for Amazon’s S3 storage service, install the UpdraftPlus WordPress plugin, and let the awesomeness pile up. S3 is cheap. I store about ~20 gigabytes on Amazon S3 and it costs less than $2 per month. UpdraftPlus plug-in automates all your backups so you’re totally covered. Amazon isn’t going anywhere but cheaper per megabyte of storage. If you break up with your web host, it’s an easy restore from Amazon S3 via the UpdraftPlus plugin and a Dear John letter sent to your former web host. If you’re technically inclined, I can recommend an Ubuntu VPS at Servarica which this blog is hosted on.
