Ok. You get the point.
At Altera Web, a Philadelphia web agency, we have tried pretty much every WordPress backup solution on the market.
First, we tried the free plugins. All I’ll say is that they are free for a reason.
Either they weren’t dependable. Or they only backed up the site pages and not the database. Or they backed up the database, but not the plugins. Or they backed up the plugins, but not the images.
So free is out.
Then after much, much research, we came upon Blog Vault. And we exhaled.
Why the praise?
- You get a 30 day free trial. And I mean free. They don’t even ask for a credit card and you can back up multiple sites.
- You can back up multiple WordPress sites from one dashboard.
- It backs up EVERYTHING (database, files, themes, plugins, images, comments, etc.).
- It stores your data on their servers (Amazon S3) so you don’t need to worry about keeping things local.
- It encrypts the data so it’s safe.
- It allows you to easily restore your site.
- It allows you to change hosts very easily.
- Lastly, they are affordable.
