VaultPress Review : WordPress Premium Backup System

Backing up your blog timely is one thing which everyone should be doing every day. Though, it’s good to have an automated sustem 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 Premium Back service from AutoMattic, Automattic is the same company behind WordPress. I got the 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. Now you can also enable VaultPress using Jetpack WordPress plugin.

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 WordPress Dashboard

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?

    You missed one point here. You didnt talk about how the restore will be done in case something happens to your blog.

    Is it automatic or you need to do things manually.

    Sounds interesting. I have never used any backup service for my blog, I have actually never backed up anything, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot.

    Not sure what I’ll do, I guess it all depends on how important your blog (your work) is. If you’re earning money and it’s a popular blog you should probably do what you’re doing. I’m not sure if I’m ready to pay $15 a month for a backup just yet.
