Don’t risk your backups on anything less

Your WordPress backups are worth the same as your entire investment in your website. The day may come when you get hacked, or your hosting company does, or they go bust – without good backups, you lose everything. Do you really want to entrust all your work to a backup plugin with only a few thousand downloads, or that has no professional backup or support? Believe us – writing a reliable backup plugin that works consistently across the huge range of WordPress deployments is hard.

UpdraftPlus Premium

UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore is not crippled in any way – it is fully functional for backing up and restoring your site. What we do have is various extra features (including site cloning), and guaranteed support, available from our website, updraftplus.com. See a comparison of the free/Premium versions, here.

If you need WordPress multisite backup compatibility (you’ll know if you do), then you need UpdraftPlus Premium.

UpdraftCentral – Remote control

As well as controlling your backups from within WordPress, you can also control all your sites’ backups from a single dashboard, with UpdraftCentral. UpdraftCentral can control both free and Premium versions of UpdraftPlus, and comes in two versions:

Hosted dashboard: a ready-to-go dashboard on updraftplus.com, with 5 free licences for everyone (read more here).
Host your own: Host the dashboard on your own WP install, with the free self-install plugin
Professional / Enterprise support agreements available
