I wouldn't know of any better backup software for your WordPress install. Used for over 20 websites and never failed me, with great features such as daily database backups and weekly files backup. Possibility to move everything to remote storage as dropbox etc. Just the best and easiest plugin available and a lifesaver if really needed !!!

This plugin easily lets a single WordPress site schedule a backup to remote storage such as Google Drive. When you need it to, it permits the same remote storage to seamlessly restore.UpdraftPlus is frequently updated and improved. I have never had any issue and I recommend this plugin for all WordPress backups.
Been using this for over a week and enjoy having peace of mind with the automatic backups.

How does UpdraftPlus compare with other backup plugins?

We’ve put together a list of why UpdraftPlus is the best WordPress backup plugin for you: .

How long will I be able to access updates?

Already-installed software can be used forever, whether you have access to updates or not. With each purchase, you’ll have 12-months of access to personal support and installations of new UpdraftPlus releases (as with about 90% of the premium WordPress plugin market). After 12 months, you can renew this access with generous discounts. If you prefer not to renew, your installed software is unaffected – it will remain installed and you can carry on using it.

How do I backup a WordPress site?

We’ve created this step-by-step guide on how to backup your WordPress site using UpdraftPlus.

Are there coupons available for discounted upgrades?

Yes! You can find the list of available upgrade coupons here.

Can I use UpdraftPlus to migrate my website to a different address?

This is a common need for site developers, or anyone wanting to maintain two copies of a site (e.g. when moving web host). The answer is “yes”; this is a feature of UpdraftPlus Premium. Just click on the “Clone/Migrate” button in UpdraftPlus, and it’s easy. (You will also be shown a link to fuller online instruction, including screenshots).

Can UpdraftPlus be used to migrate a WooCommerce site?

Yes! WooCommerce is a well-behaved WordPress plugin that stores its database information in the WordPress database, and any uploaded files in the WordPress media library. As such, it does not present any special issues or challenges when migrating. By the way – itself uses WooCommerce; we’ve even developed a few WooCommerce plugins of our own, which you can see here.
