Automatically back up before WordPress or plugin updates

UpdraftPlus Premium backs up your site before updates are made so you can restore it if you need to in a matter of clicks. 3 to be precise.

Back up incrementally

Premium allows you to back up incremental changes made since the last site backup, adding these to the master, saving server resources.

Backup time and scheduling

Run backups at set times e.g. at 3am / during period of low traffic to conserve server resources for peak traffic.

Additional retention rules

Get more control over how many backups are stored in a specified interval with retention rules.

Restore from other backup plugins

includes BackWPup, BackupWordPress, Simple Backups and more.

WordPress Multisite compatible

Migrate a subsite to a single standalone site or restore a subsite, instead of the whole multisite. Restrict UpdraftPlus dashboard access to Network Administrators.

Get detailed reports

Premium lists errors, so you don’t need to search through log files, cryptographic checksums so you can verify the integrity of the backed-up files and much more. Send reports to multiple email addresses or to the syslog.

Premium Migration

Migrate in minutes! Pick and choose which themes, plugins and database tables to migrate with Premium. Find out more. 

Back up non-WordPress databases and files

e.g. tables belonging to your e-commerce store or customisations to WordPress core. Encrypt databases to keep your data safe. Extract specific files without downloading the full backup archive.

Anonymise backup data

Personal data such as names, emails and WooCommerce order data can be anonymised. Useful for migrations to development or staging sites.

Lock Settings

Restrict access to the UpdraftPlus Premium dashboard with a password. Useful if you have administration users who should not have access to the backup configuration.

Manage your backups from the WP-CLI

This feature allows backups, restorations and clones to be initiated via the WordPress Command Line Interface.

What others had to say

“We’ve used Updraft for years as our go-to choice for manual backups before updating, incremental updates throughout the day, and spinning up clones of staging sites quickly. Great tool with a fantastic support team.”

Chris Gilchrist from Waterfront Digital

“UpdraftPlus has been our backup plugin for as far as I can remember. I upgraded from the free version to get more options on where to send my backup data.

I like it because it’s set and forget. UpdraftPlus Premium is scheduled to backup incremental changes daily. I just get a confirmation email to say it’s worked.” 

Michael & Maggie from ‘The World Was Here First’ Blog
