Backing up your blog timely is one thing which everyone should be doing every day. Though, it’s good to have an automated system and we have already shared ways to backup WordPress. Today, we are extending the list with VaultPress review, which is a premium backup service from WordPress parent company AutoMattic.
5 months back I posted about
golden ticket to sign up for Vaultpress at 15$/month (Basic) and considering the safety measures I signed up with them. After all precaution is always better than cure.
Signing up and getting started with VaultPress is very easy. But before I will explain all this thing let me give you an overview of Vaultpress. Vaultpress is an automatic backup service for WordPress which is created by the same people who created WordPress. And it’s more than just a WordPress backup system, as it scans your file for any viruses, malware and VaultPress security team will ensure that if something goes wrong, they will always help you out.
Hands on review of VaultPress
VaultPress is a complete backup solution from WordPress, which works with the help of a plugin, which takes constant backup of your WordPress and also in the time of need, you can restore database or files from VaultPress backup. You can enable VaultPress by purchasing any license of Jetpack from here.
Signing up with Vaultpress was easy. All you need to do is enter your details and credit card details. I hope in final release they will add PayPal option as well. After signing up you need to login to WordPress.com account or if you don’t have one, you need to signup for that. Don’t worry signing up for WordPress.com account is free.
Once you are signed up with them and your payment has been processed, you will get a link from where you can download vaultpress link. That plugin is different for every one and good for one blog only. So make sure you don’t share your plugin with anyone. Once that plugin is installed and activated, it will start uploading all the files to server.
Vaultpress offer you dedicated dashboard at Dashboard.vaultpress.com which need your WordPress.com account login to access.
Well while I’m this post Vaultpress is uploading images and after that it will upload (backup) plugins, themes and database. VaultPress keep creating a backup of your complete WordPress after every one hour, and you can always restore from the backup, if something goes wrong. Overall I’m happy as I will have a backup if something goes wrong with my blog. It’s not possible for me to comment on Vaultpress support at this moment, but after a while I will update you with my experience with Vaultpress.
Specially, if you are one of those who are not technical and looking forward for an automated WordPress backup solution with support, VaultPress is worth your price. Do let me know if you have any question regarding VaultPress and if you are a user of VaultPress service, do share your views?
